moderated Question on how too print an address on an envelope using a standard printer.


Albert Cutolo
 

Good evening everyone, 

 

Would anyone happen too have step by step instructions on how too print an address on an envelope using a printer?  My girlfriend uses office word 365, Jaws 2022 on an HP laptop computer. I understand, that there is a way too do this in word, that is located in the format options, but I’m not sure if it’s a template, or if there is another way too do this specific task.     


 

Albert,

Rather than trying to describe all the steps necessary to eventually end up with an envelope template you can use, that doesn't use text boxes (and most do), I am simply going to offer one I have created:

Commercial #10 Envelope Template without Text Boxes

This will download as an MS-Word document template (DOTX) file.  Selecting it and activating will cause a fresh copy of an envelope to open in MS-Word ready for addressing.

There are three lines of text I have as place holders for the return address:

Return Line One

Return Line Two

Return Line Three
Selecting from the R in Return, to the end of the line, then typing the Name, Street Address, and City/State/Zip for lines One, Two, and Three, respectively will get you a return address properly sized and positioned.

There are three lines of text I have as place holders for the main address that are centered horizontally and vertically on the envelope:

Main Address Line One

Main Address Line Two

Main Address Line Three

Again, selecting from Main to the end of line for and using the same items, but for the main addressee, that were identified for the return address, will get you a correctly placed address.  Make sure not to select the spaces leading up to the word Main or the position of the address will be wrong.

I cannot tell you how to print it specifically, because how you actually feed an envelope varies from printer to printer, even within a single maker's models.  Sighted assistance would be needed just so that the actual feed information can be learned as far as which side goes up or down and which direction the flap should be oriented so that you get the front of the envelope printed and with the return address at the upper left of the envelope.

I hope this helps you, and potentially others.

Now, what I think will be a major improvement as far as ease of use.  I'm constantly harping on the fact that too few in this world know how to create an accessible MS-Word fillable form, but I do, and that's what I should have done to begin with.  In this template, each line of the return address is a fillable field as well as each line of the main address, and each is announced as you land in it.  You also can't do anything but type in the content you want, so nothing can end up accidentally rearranged on the face of the envelope, either.  Just fill it in and print it.

So now you have a choice.  Use the one that just has lines of text you can change if you prefer it, or this one if you just want to tab between edit boxes and fill them in:

Thank You Brian,  So I just fill this in and hit Control P after making sure that an envelope is in my printer orientated the same way that I usually do it?

Marty,

In theory, yes.  I won't swear to "in practice" until you've had a chance to try it.  But it definitely works on my printer.

You're welcome.  Just to appease my curiosity, which of the two versions did you end up using and/or liking best?

Hi Brian and all,

Thank you for creating these, I downloaded both templates, now how do I save or get them onto my USB stick? They’re currently in my downloads folder or whatever the place is called where downloads go to.

Hi Everyone,

 

I’m also having the same problem as Madison.  I have the envelope in my download folder, but I cannot open it or move it in to my Word documents.  I am also having the problem that it keeps telling me that it’s in protective view.  Could this be because I am still using Word 2010 and Windows 7?  For printing envelopes I’ve been using the Word program for envelopes with no problem for many years and many printers, but this program seems much easier to use.  Any help will be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks,

 

Al Sorrentino

When I got this message at my office, using office 2016, I just pressed escape.
I think Jaws would put up a message saying something like:
you are in protected view, press escape to exit protected view.

when I tried pressing escape, nothing happened except for hearing a ding sound. what I wound up doing is pressing the alt key followed by the f, i, and e key. now pressing the tab key jumps from one line to another.

No, or more accurately, not specifically.  Office has been enforcing protected view by default for downloaded content for years now.  I personally hate, hate, hate that because I do not ever download or attempt to open content from sources I do not trust.  Thus, I long ago turned off this feature in every Office program including Word, Excel, and PowerPoint so that I could just download and go.

Yes, that requires additional vigilance on your part, but if you're someone who's as picky and careful as I am, and also use a security suite that scans anything and everything immediately after download before you can even touch it, having it off should not be problematic.

My tutorial for doing same:  Adjusting Protected View Settings in MS-Office Programs
And it doesn't matter if this document opens in protected mode as you should still be able to read it.  If not, unprotect it.  Here are the instructions in that downloadable file:
--------

Adjusting Protected View Settings in MS-Office Programs

Note:  You must do this in each MS-Office program in which you wish to have Protected View turned off.    This is not something that propagates between the Office Programs such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc.

1.        ALT+F to open the file tab/menu

2.       Hit ‘T’ to open the Options Dialog.

3.       Arrow Down until you hit Trust Center

4.       Either:

a.       Hit ALT+T which will activate the Trust Center Settings Button.

b.      Hit TAB until you come to the Trust Center Settings button then activate it.

5.       In the Trust Center Settings dialog, use up or down arrow to get to Protected View.  I say up or down because you will land on whatever setting the last person who used the Trust Center Settings was on, so Protected View could be above or below where you are.  You’ll have to listen until you hit it or reach the end and need to reverse direction.

6.      Once on Protected View, hit TAB to throw focus on to the checkboxes related to protected mode.  You should exercise additional caution in what you are willing to open as far as what comes to you via e-mail attachments or download from the internet, but if your sources are trusted (you know that they run antivirus programs or are major players with tight security) you will generally be fine.  You will want to uncheck the one or more of the following checkboxes, and I uncheck them all, which you should encounter in this order:

a.       Enable Protected View for files originating from the Internet

b.      Enable Protected View for files located in potentially unsafe locations

c.       Enable Protected View for Outlook Attachments.

               Office 2016 (and maybe 2013, but I haven’t tested):  You’re done.  Just OK your way all the way back to the Office program you’re currently using.

                For Office 2010, see step 7 below.

7.       There will be one additional checkbox, Enable data execution protection mode, which should be left checked.
