moderated JAWS 18 and the latest Office365?


 

If you have an active Office 365 subscription you are always entitled to the latest version of Office.

Also, supposedly Office 2019's due out near the end of this year. If I wanted to upgrade the CD way, I'd need to buy a copy now, then buy another when it's released.

Kelly,

I've read a lot about what you're describing, and it wasn't actually anything all that underhanded. A very small percentage of users lost access to their documents because of a bug that was found and fixed a few days later. Those users' access was restored.

Also, there's a difference in subscribing to a documentation platform (IE: Google Docs) and subscribing to a licensing scheme for a documentation suite (IE: Microsoft Office). With the latter, Microsoft doesn't host anything--unless you throw your documents into OneDrive, and even if you let your license lapse you'll still be able to read them. It's no different than if your computer came with the trial version of Office 2016 and you decided not to buy a copy, however you do it.


 

Why would you loose access to Word if you install Office 2016 via an Office 365 subscription and save your documents on your local hard drive? Subscriptions are the way things go and since I would otherwise pay for 1 TB of Dropbox storage I think the Office 365 subscription which includes 1 Tb of OneDrive storage is a heck of a deal. Also, $99 a year allows up to 5 family members (or good friends if you wish) to install Office and each person gets 1 Tb of storage as well as 60 Skype minutes for those who use them.

Regards,
Sieghard

the current version of JAWS is JAWS 2018 not JAWS 18, which is the previous version. Also, I would buy the Office 2016 CD not the subscription. It is cheaper in the long run and technology companies are deplatforming peple because of what is in their documents or e-mails. I do not want to lose access to MS Word documents because some coder at Microsoft decided fit a vague idea in the company's terms of service. This is what happend with Google docs last year when thousands of peple were denied access to the information they created.

So I haven't touched Office since 2003, and am going to need to change
that.
What I'm wondering is if I'll have problems using latest JAWS version
18 with the current Office version available as a subscription. Any
settings I should change to avoid giving me a headache?

Perfect, thanks. I found it. I was looking for both options, actually. I had been looking through the ribbons and not seeing them, but found them by using alt F followed by T.

It should be in Office 2013 as Bill said, but are you talking about Backstage or Start Screen? The backstage comes into play during saving and opeing files and you can turn on "Do Not use Backstage" under Options > Save, once you are in the save tab you can try Alt+
S.
The start screen is that initial screen which comes uop when you first open Excel or Word where you have to press escape to get rid of it. This is in Options > General and in Office 2016 it's the last option before the OK button, so you can get to it quicker if you Shift Tab 3 times or you can try Alt+H.

Regards,
Sieghard

Hi Bill,

The reason I asked was because I was trying to find an option like this and couldn't find it.

Hi, Pamela. You should be able to do this with Office 2013 as well. I was only saying that you don't need to do it with every program on your PC, only Office.

you stated that there are other tweaks of a personal preference, but do you (or anyone else) know if there are any other tweaks that stand out as being particularly beneficial to tweak for screen reader,/,magnification optimization?

I recommend a couple tweeks with Office 365:

In the File menu, Options, on the general tab, tab until you get to "Show the start screen when this application starts" and uncheck it.

Then, go down to the save options which is about 4 below the general tab and make sure that "Don't show the backstage when opening or saving files" is checked.

This is the same in Word and Excel. I almost never use PowerPoint, but I suspect those settings might be there as well.

There are lots of other things you can tweek but those are more personal preference things, but the Start Screen and Backstage settings will make your experience much smoother in my very biased opinion.

They should apply to the entire Office Suite, as in the case where, if you change where Word stores document files, it also changes where Notepad text files are stored.

Any settings I should change to avoid giving me a headache?












.


 

It should be in Office 2013 as Bill said, but are you talking about Backstage or Start Screen? The backstage comes into play during saving and opeing files and you can turn on "Do Not use Backstage" under Options > Save, once you are in the save tab you can try Alt+
S.
The start screen is that initial screen which comes uop when you first open Excel or Word where you have to press escape to get rid of it. This is in Options > General and in Office 2016 it's the last option before the OK button, so you can get to it quicker if you Shift Tab 3 times or you can try Alt+H.

Regards,
Sieghard

Hi Bill,

The reason I asked was because I was trying to find an option like this and couldn't find it.

Hi, Pamela. You should be able to do this with Office 2013 as well. I was only saying that you don't need to do it with every program on your PC, only Office.

Do you know if there is a way to get rid of the backstage view in Word 2013?

Thanks,

The changes to StartScreen and BackStage View only apply to Office 365 or Office 16. So it is to only these programs that you make the changes.

Richard, does disabling the start screen and backstage have to be changed for each program, or once done in one program, the changes are applied to which ever program is used?

you stated that there are other tweaks of a personal preference, but do you (or anyone else) know if there are any other tweaks that stand out as being particularly beneficial to tweak for screen reader,/,magnification optimization?

I recommend a couple tweeks with Office 365:

In the File menu, Options, on the general tab, tab until you get to "Show the start screen when this application starts" and uncheck it.

Then, go down to the save options which is about 4 below the general tab and make sure that "Don't show the backstage when opening or saving files" is checked.

This is the same in Word and Excel. I almost never use PowerPoint, but I suspect those settings might be there as well.

There are lots of other things you can tweek but those are more personal preference things, but the Start Screen and Backstage settings will make your experience much smoother in my very biased opinion.

So I haven't touched Office since 2003, and am going to need to change that. What I'm wondering is if I'll have problems using latest JAWS version 18 with the current Office version available as a subscription.
Any settings I should change to avoid giving me a headache?


Mario
 

yes, I understand that. let me try to clarify my inquiry...

if the settings are changed while using Word, do the changes only apply
to when Word is used or do the changes also apply to when the other
programs of that version of Office is also used?

and make sure that “Don’t show the backstage when opening or saving
files” is checked.

This is the same in Word and Excel.  I almost never use PowerPoint, but
I suspect those settings might be there as well.

There are lots of other things you can tweek but those are more personal
preference things, but the Start Screen and Backstage settings will make
your experience much smoother in my very biased opinion.

So I haven't touched Office since 2003, and am going to need to change
that. What I'm wondering is if I'll have problems using latest JAWS
version 18 with the current Office version available as a subscription.
Any settings I should change to avoid giving me a headache?

I recommend a couple tweeks with Office 365:

In the File menu, Options, on the general tab, tab until you get to “Show the start screen when this application starts” and uncheck it.

Then, go down to the save options which is about 4 below the general tab and make sure that “Don’t show the backstage when opening or saving files” is checked.

 

This is the same in Word and Excel.  I almost never use PowerPoint, but I suspect those settings might be there as well.
