Trouble activating links in firefox

Kimber Gardner
 

Hi All,

I'm wondering if anyone else has had trouble activating links in the
most recent release of firefox. I'm using it with version 2018 of
jaws. When it first happened I thought it was just a poorly designed
web site. But when it continued on sites I know are usually fine I
began to wonder about the cause. Is it jaws? Is it firefox? Is it the
two together?

Has anyone else seen this behavior?

Thanks,
Kim

Re: Editing cells in Excel 2016

Michael Malver
 

I am missing most of the messages to this thread, but I thought I would give my input anyway.
If I select a cell, then press F2, I can use my left and right arrow keys to edit within the cell. The feature was broken for a while, but the latest version of jaws it’s me move within the cell.

Hi Al

It does not surprise me that maximising the window did not solve the Excel
editing problem. I would be interested if anyone comes up with a
satisfactory solution. I am sure Excel did not used to behave like this.

Thanks for the suggestion. I always try this when issues arise, but
unfortunately, in this case it does not help.

Editing cells in Excel 2016

Alan Robbins
 

Using Win 1803 and latest Jaws 2018 I run into a strange situation when trying to edit cell contents in excel within MS Office 2016

Whether the cell contains text or a formula, some cells can be edited by dressing F2 and then arrowing back and forth making necessary corrections. However, other cells doing the same only reads the entire cell contents when arrowing either way. No pattern or consistency to this behavior. Have others experienced this too? Any work arounds?

 

Best,

Al

has anyone found suitable work arounds when it comes to using monsters cite as it relates to job search results?

David Ingram
 

Hi list members, I'd like to know if anyone knows a work around when it comes to using monster is it relates to job search results? The reason why I ask this question is because when I type in music producer, or studio music producer, I seem to get different job search results then those I would expect. I've contacted monster support on this issue but I've heard nothing in response to this question. Has anyone else had a semular problem when using monster and performing job searches. Thank you for any information that you might have concerning my question.

Bob,

Are you able to get into the "task switching loop" by intention or, at the very least, reasonably consistently?

It is going to be close to impossible for anyone to help you out of this unless they can see how it is that you're getting into it and what's actually occurring at the time. I'm still unclear as to what, exactly, is occurring.

Re: Skype eight (8) commands..

 

Not too unusual for the same keyboard shortcut to start and end a call, they just need to say so. After all, on an iPhone the “Answer” button becomes the “End Call” button after you answer a call and on a regular old telephone picking up the receiver answers and putting it back down ends the call, essentially the same idea of a toggle.
