Re: Need mor help eliminating grammar announcement in word

Turning off the auto spell check and grammatical checking in word and
outlook doesn't affect the spell check with the spell checker. By unchecking
them they only stop the checking while typing.

Hello Mike,

First of all, if you turn off the display of grammatical errors in Word
you
will not be able to use Word's feature of displaying incorrect grammar in
a
document. The JAWS detection of the marked errors only points out the
places in the document marked with the blue underline by Word. Turning
off
the JAWS detection does not turn off Word's displaying of grammatical
errors. However, it is the JAWS detection that doesn't stop when
unchecked
in the Settings Center. Turning off the Word options affects the proofing
and the display of errors whereas the JAWS feature is just for whether or
not those errors should be detected by JAWS and spoken.

To access the proofing options in Word do the following:

1. Hold down Alt key, press F while the alt key is held down and then
release the Alt key. If you are used to the menu structure that is the
same
keystroke used for going into a file menu. The Alt+F keystroke activates
the File button in later versions of Word.
2. After using the Alt with F keystroke use the letter T by itself. This
activates the Word Options menu item.
3. After pressing the letter T focus should go into a list of categories
for the Word options. At that point either press the letter P to select
the
Proofing options or use down arrow key until you get to the Proofing
category.
4. Once you have selected the Proofing category by either pressing P or
using down arrow to it, you use the tab key to move from option to option
relevant to proofing.
Use the tab key (in Word 2013 you tab 12 times but it might vary in
other
Word versions) until you find a checkbox labeled "Mark grammar errors as
you
type." If JAWS says it is checked then use spacebar to uncheck it. If in
the future you want grammar errors marked by Word as you type in a
document
then go back into the options and check the box.
5. After using the spacebar to uncheck the box use tab key a couple times
to find a checkbox labeled "Check Grammar with Spelling." If JAWS says it
is checked then use spacebar to remove the checkmark. If in the future
you
want grammar to be checked with spelling then go back into the Proofing
options and check this box.
6. After using spacebar to remove the checkmark use tab key until you
find
the OK button and use spacebar to activate the button.

The above steps are for stopping Word from marking grammatical errors with
a
blue underline. If you want Word to display grammatical errors but not
have
JAWS detect and speak them that is where the current problem with JAWS
lies
as using the checkbox in the JAWS Settings Manager to stop the detection
doesn't seem to work, at least for Word 2013.

Take care.

Then you can save the changes.

I think it’s usually alt-s to save passwords. Alt-d for do not save. Not the most intuitive, but hey.

In the newest versino fo Firefox, I also noticed that the buttons that appear on the notification bar are always visible at the top of your webpage. Well, not sure exactly how it looks, visually, but for the purposes of voice output, that seems to be how it is. So if you hit ctrl-home, then tab, you’ll see buttons that you can also press. I agree tha the keyboard commands would be faster, but if you can’t remember themm, this works.

Hey jerry.

 

Your question caused me to do a little bit of research. Some symbols appear to be font dependent when it comes to standard character codes; it looks like the checkmark is one of them. In other words, you will not be able to get this in the standard way using an alt code in most fonts available in Microsoft Windows. It looks like the alt code is 0252, but in most fonts, this will show up as a u diaresis (sp) symbol.

There’s a neat, rather strange, way around this, which avoids having to use the symbols list or library in MS office. I tested this and it seems to work beautifully, but you may be a little bemused.

Try this method.

Go to where you want to insert the checkmark

Type in the numbers 2713 (this is a unicode value)

Now, select those numbers with your cursor.

Now type in alt-x.

The numbers will disappear and be replaced with a checkmark.

Like so

Re: reposting question reading unlabeled graphics

Adrian Spratt
 

Vicki,

 

If I understand your query correctly, you want JAWS to read unlabeled graphics in email. Almost by definition, JAWS can’t read graphics that aren’t labeled.

 

What JAWS can do is enable you to assign labels when you figure out what a graphic represents. This works with browsers, and it probably also works with email. If you’re getting email from the same source with unlabeled graphics, you might try to figure out what they each stand for and assign your own label. Sometimes you can figure it out by clicking on a link and finding where it takes you. Sometimes context gives it away. Otherwise, you may need someone with vision to interpret for you, and then you can assign a label for when the graphic appears the next time.

2. Begin typing in the word "graphic" without the quotes. Typing graph should suffice.

3. Press down arrow. Look for the "graphics" option. Pressing the space key should toggle between all, none and labeled.

Does that help?

Endpoint Management is a security software that incorporates anti virus, anti malware and lots of other security features onto the computer system and my wife fears if she installs it on her computer that it will screw up her system. Anyone out there have any experience with this software and JAWS?

3. Press down arrow. Look for the "graphics" option. Pressing the space key should toggle between all, none and labeled.

Does that help?

I posted this question awhile ago and didn't receive an answer so I thought I'd try again.

Is there a way to read unlabeled graphics in an e-mail with JAWS 2019? Seems like there was.

 

Thanks.

Adrian,
 
yes, I fully intend to contact Vispero and Endpoint to see what they say before my wife atempts any installs. I also have a backup laptop where I can install the software to test it before installing on my wife’s work computer. I do not believe JAWS will work with Endpoint’s interface but it is all the background activity we are worried about as far as interfereing with JAWS is concerned. I was just curious if anyone out there had any experience with Endpoint. Thanks for your response.

Marvin, I’m afraid I don’t have any experience with this software, but I want to be sure that, in addition, you ask not only Vispero, but also Endpoint. Sometimes software companies will tell you if they’ve had experience working with screenreader programs. Some will even offer to help if the user encounters problems. It’s in their interest to be accessibility-compliant.

Hi group,

 

My wife is a med. transcriptionist and she uses JAWS 2019 latest with a Win 10(version 1809) operating system. her current employer is asking her to install Endpoint Management System software and she is wondering if anyone on this list has used Endpoint Management software and if it interferes with JAWS in any way? Endpoint Management is a security software that incorporates anti virus, anti malware and lots of other security features onto the computer system and my wife fears if she installs it on her computer that it will screw up her system. Anyone out there have any experience with this software and JAWS?

 

thanks in advance,

Marvin Atkins

Marvin,

I work at a large bank and Symantec Endpoint is installed on our laptops.  I am also on Windows 10 and using JAWS 2019.  I have not experienced any issues with Endpoint.  It’s just kind of there doing it’s thing and I never pay any attention to it.   I see the icon in my system tray, but that’s it.

Strange. Doesn’t sound like you did anything wrong. I was going to say that you have to make sure you *select* the number  code, and not just put your cursor on it, but it sounds like you already did this.

I tried playing with 2713 and 2708, selecting the numbers then typing alt x.  Didn’t work.  What did I do wrong?  I also tried the checkmark and heavy checkmark and they did work.

 

Thanks in advance

Wow, this is pretty cool – who knew!  I played around with this a bit & using the instructions below, different numbers create different symbols.  For instance typing 2708 instead of 2713, highlighting it & hitting alt x gives you an airplane!

Hey jerry.

 

Your question caused me to do a little bit of research. Some symbols appear to be font dependent when it comes to standard character codes; it looks like the checkmark is one of them. In other words, you will not be able to get this in the standard way using an alt code in most fonts available in Microsoft Windows. It looks like the alt code is 0252, but in most fonts, this will show up as a u diaresis (sp) symbol.

There’s a neat, rather strange, way around this, which avoids having to use the symbols list or library in MS office. I tested this and it seems to work beautifully, but you may be a little bemused.

Try this method.

Go to where you want to insert the checkmark

Type in the numbers 2713 (this is a unicode value)

Now, select those numbers with your cursor.

Now type in alt-x.

The numbers will disappear and be replaced with a checkmark.

Like so

Re: getting out of spellcheck in MS Word 265

Allison,

If you don’t figure this out, you might try the alternative of Shift alt L to bring up a list of spelling issues or Alt F7 to move to mistake to mistake.  I’ve really gotten away from the standard F7 method as of late.

The only way of escaping seems to be to press f4 and exit the document entirely and then go back in.

Any suggestons?

Re: JAWS and Endpoint management System Software

I am on Outlook 2016 at work.  I think we also used Enpoint when I was on Outlook 2010, but I was also on Window Eyes at that time.  I’m a heavy user of Outlook and have not seen any issues.  Occasionally I may have a delay as an email is opening, but I cannot say if that is Endpoint or just a general thing.  Given al that I read on this list, I do not believe that any weird quirks I have with JAWS are related to Endpoint, since others seem to talk about the same quirks.
