zipping files

Kevin Meyers <kevinmeyers@...>
 

I tried to use winzip to zip some files. I use to be able to use winzip with windows 7 and for some reason it is no longer working. I’m using Windows 10 and Jaws 2018. Is there something I need to setup on Jaws or is there another zip program that works with Jaws?  Thanks, Kevin

Hi,
Not that I am aware. You could take the OCR from the JAWS viewer , paste into a Word document and then print but there would be no formatting or the like. Also, does your scanner have a copy or save to pdf function? If so, JAWS may be able to read the controls for the scanner software and thus copy without the use of OpenBook. With the advent of Microsoft's Seeing AI and K NFB reder and advances in JAWS OpenBook may indeed be on the way out. I do wish they would try an update however as it has ben years.

With the OCR and picture functions in Jaws 2019 Open Book is becoming obosolete in some ways. One feature of Open Book I use is the photo copy function. Is there any way to use Jaws 2019 as a photo copier when you have a scanner attached?

Smack both shift keys several times, but not too many to bring on stickey keys dialog.  This is a problem that used to happen all the time with certain keyboard controllers chips.  Usually reboot is not necessary.

Alt+f=file,
T=options,
M=mail,
Alt+n=signature, press enter,
here you land on ok button, shift+tab you land on the edit button,
you can edit here,
make sure you then enter on the ok button.

The impossible is the untried, Never under estimate the power of a dream.

Have you tried to tab once or twice past the edit field for the signature and then Shift+Ta back into it? At one point this worked for me, I checked it right now and for me Jaws 2019 reads the text of my signature, but I am using Office 365.

Percussive maintenance often works: Place one hand on each shift key and bang them alternately about ten times. If you haven't rebooted yet and percussion doesn't work, reboot.

Hello, everyone.

 

I am not sure if this a Jaws or an Outlook problem, but I am experienceing strange and inconsistent behavior in Outlook with regard to  noting e-mails that I have replied to.

 

Up until recently, if I replied to an e-mail, and decided to keep the original e-mail in my inbox, that e-mail would have a “replied” designation associated with it.  I find this to be quite handy, especially when I have e-mails that require multiple responses or action steps.

 

However, within  the past week or so, I no longer consistently receive these “replied” designations.  In other words, sometimes I receive the designations, while other times, I do not.

 

This is a problem, since I sometimes can’t recall whether I’ve initially replied to a message, and have to go back into my sent file to find out for sure.

 

Does anyone know how to consistently restore the “replied” designation on e-mails to which I’ve already responded?

 

I’m currently using the latest build of Jaws 2019 with the Office 365 version of Outlook 2016, and Windows 10.

 

Thank you!

Hi,

 

Thanks for confirming that I’m not the only one having this issue. I found a bit of a workaround. There is a setting in Excel, under Quick Settings (Insert + V) called “Shading changes indication”, and when I turn this on, Jaws will announce any color shading changes when moving into a cell. I would still prefer the usual keystrokes to give me that info, but till Vispero sees fit to fix this issue, I’ll continue with the Shading changes indication. The only thing I don’t like about this setting is that every time I go to a cell with no shading, I must hear Jaws say “no shading”. Not a big deal, just a little annoying! 😊

 

Thanks again.

Hi everyone,

 

I am trying to use Conditional formatting in both Excel 2016 and 2019. I choose to use a formula to decide which cells are formatted, choose cells in sheet 1 that do not equal cells in sheet 2, and choose to fill the cells matching the criteria with a red background fill. The conditional formatting is working, but using Jaws 2019, I have no way of knowing whether or not it is working, because Jaws reads “text color black, background color white” when I press Insert + F, and “Black on white” when I press Insert + 5 on cells that have different values. If I load NVDA and press Insert+ F on these cells, NVDA says “black on bright red background”.

 

Has anyone else noticed this? I am getting so frustrated with Jaws not being able to do basic things like this when a free screen reader like NVDA is able to do it with no problem!

 

Thanks for any feedback.
