moderated Getting out of the menu in docs

Anna Givens
 

Still wondering why when I’m google docs, if I am in the menu but don’t want to select anything, but just want to get back to the document area, why doesn’t pressing escape do anything, and what should I do??

I have also tried taking through the menu (which I would hate to have to do every time) but that didn’t get me back to the document area.

Also tried alt tab to go to other window and then back and that didn’t do anything.

Also tried f5 to refresh page (although I don’t think it was an issue with the page, but who knows) but that didn’t do anything!

Any ideas would be appreciated!

Be well,
Anna

Hi, Anna Try Function key 6 (F6 a couple of times. This usually works when navigating between panes in a program.

Still wondering why when I’m google docs, if I am in the menu but don’t want to select anything, but just want to get back to the document area, why doesn’t pressing escape do anything, and what should I do??

I have also tried taking through the menu (which I would hate to have to do every time) but that didn’t get me back to the document area.

Also tried alt tab to go to other window and then back and that didn’t do anything.

Also tried f5 to refresh page (although I don’t think it was an issue with the page, but who knows) but that didn’t do anything!

Any ideas would be appreciated!

Have you tried ALT + /.
This brings the focus back to the menu and then press ESC.

You guys,
I just cannot get google docs to work for me.
It won’t just read the text that is in my document. This is beyond frustrating as MS Word that I am used to, is refusing to open so really been trying to use google just for now at least to turn things in that are due immediately. But I just can’t get it to work. And emailing and responding back and forth, while helpful just isn’t working, I am just more frustrated than ever. If anyone is able to call and walk me through, I would sooo appreciate it!
I just don’t know what to do and I really need to edit and send in these documents...

If you have a legal install of MS-Office and it has suddenly stopped working, then I'd suggest you call Microsoft Disability Services on (800) 936-5900.
They should be able to assist you in getting Office functioning again.

I appreciate that. But at the moment I am solely focused on this resume that has to be turned in asap. I just need to be able to have JAWS read my document accurately and be able to edit it.
No time for messing with anything else right now. That all will have to be done later.

If it's time critical, then spend the time to call in the experts, who are available to you at zero cost.   Asking questions here, while appropriate, is not the way to resolve this quickly.

And given the current goings on in the world, I have to believe that anyone asking for resumes will understand if there are delays.

Subject: Re: Getting out of the menu in docs

You guys,
I just cannot get google docs to work for me.
It won’t just read the text that is in my document. This is beyond frustrating as MS Word that I am used to, is refusing to open so really been trying to use google just for now at least to turn things in that are due immediately. But I just can’t get it to work. And emailing and responding back and forth, while helpful just isn’t working, I am just more frustrated than ever. If anyone is able to call and walk me through, I would sooo appreciate it!
I just don’t know what to do and I really need to edit and send in these documents...

Anna,
I recommend calling AIRA if you have a smart phone. It's free for college students right now and this sounds like one of their suggested uses of the service.

Subject: Getting out of the menu in docs

Still wondering why when I’m google docs, if I am in the menu but don’t want to select anything, but just want to get back to the document area, why doesn’t pressing escape do anything, and what should I do??

I have also tried taking through the menu (which I would hate to have to do every time) but that didn’t get me back to the document area.

Also tried alt tab to go to other window and then back and that didn’t do anything.

Also tried f5 to refresh page (although I don’t think it was an issue with the page, but who knows) but that didn’t do anything!

Any ideas would be appreciated!

Be well,
Anna
