Re: Putting graphics in a document using Jaws

Mike B <mb69mach1@...>
 


Hi Teri,
 
Below is a note I saved, but personally I've never done this.
 
From: Brian Lee
In Word, place the cursor where you want to insert the logo. 
Use Alt followed by N followed by P for choosing a picture to insert.
Browse to the PNG file and insert it.
JAWS recognizes the inserted picture as an object. 
Use CTRL with shift and O to select the picture.
JAWS should speak the height and width of the picture at this point.
Press enter key.
When you press enter key the "Lay out options" pane should appear.  It might
come up and have keyboard focus right on the "See more" button or you might
have to use F6 until focus is in the pane.
Press spacebar on the "See more" button.
There will be three page tabs in the resulting dialog box.  Go to the Size
page.
You can tab across to confirm absolute height and width. 
The aspect ratio will likely be locked and be relative to the original
picture size.  As you tab you should find a rotation box and it is likely on
zero degrees.
There are also two boxes for adjusting height and width, which will  only
work if you uncheck the aspect ratio checkbox. If you do uncheck that
checkbox and adjust height and width percentages then JAWS will speak the
new dimensions in the document when you use CTRL with shift and O to select
the picture.
 
I hope this is what you are wanting.
 
Take care.

Hi

Are there any tutorials that cover putting graphics like pictures in a
document using Jaws? Or any tips and tricks? I'm doing a course that
requires me to produce material including pictures for the class students.

Also, are there any teachers on the list who use Jaws and who would be
happy to correspond with me privately?

Thanks for any help anyone is able to offer.

Re: Question Jaws Caps

Mike B <mb69mach1@...>
 

Hi Bob,
 
You can check and change your cap pitch using the steps below.  I have my cap pitch set at 27 so I can tell caps a little easier.
 
1. Press, Insert + J, to open the Jaws context menu, then press the letter, O, to open options, or arrow down to, Options, and press enter.
2. Press the letter, V, to open the Voices submenu, or down arrow to, submenu Voices, and press enter.
3. Press enter on, Voice adjustment...
4. Tab 5 times to, Voice adjust combobox, All Contexts, and in here is where you'll find the caps pitch setting by tabbing a few times.
5. Now down arrow to find the PC cursor, Jaws cursor, Keyboard and Tutor message voices.  Tab on each of these to find voice rate and pitch change settings. 
If you make any changes make sure that you apply and okay them to save them.  If you change the cap pitch in the all contexts dialogue it'll cover all cursors.
 

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go dodgers!

This may be of interest if your contacts list has not been, um, addressed, yet.  Smile.  This is an easy way to add a sender’s name to the permanent contacts list.

 

1. Open the message containing the sender’s address that you wish to add.

2. Press alt 1 twice quickly to move Jaws focus to the from field.

3. Press the applications key or shift F10 to open the context menu.

4. Press D to select the “Add to Outlook contacts” option.

Tab through the fields and make sure they are filled out as you want.

Press alt-s to save.

Hi,
Not sure if this is the same but it’s worth a shot.  I recently experienced this in Office 365’s version as well. I almost abandoned Live Mail as a result and I’m sure some might advocate that at any rate regardless. But returning to the topic at hand. Go into Word and access its options and make sure auto correct is turned on.  I know, I know that’s not what you’re asking for and you might not even want to use it but trust me this is the only known way to revive the ability to do that which you wish. Try it and you might find that pleasantly the option to spell check in Live Mail revives.
Good luck and I hope that helps.
Take good care.

Re: adobe acrobat reader dc and jaws 2019

I posted this earlier, but here it is again in case it helps.

Open Adobe, either from the icon on your desktop, or from the start menu.

Press control-k.

Press s till you hear

Security enhanced.

There is a checkbox that says,

Enable protected mode at startup.  If it’s checked.  Press the spacebar to uncheck it.

If you get a warning message, that’s okay.  You need to change this to make it work.

Tab to OK.

Tab to OK again.

Now it works as it should.

If not, you'll need to contact VFO / Fs and have it emailed to you.  I don't

about this behavior by a dongle.  Hopefully someone will have an definitive

Learn something every day.  Smile.

I did not have the name only checkbox checked.  Now it is, for future possible use.

But names do have to be in the contacts list for this to work.  As I said off-list

Perhaps what you might want—since you have not added names to your contacts is suggested contacts.  This is a list of all the addresses you’ve sent messages to.

But there’s no reason to go here, if your autofill is working.  Outlook will autofill using likely addresses you’ve used before whether they’re in your contacts or not.

If your autofill does not bring up a name you want, that you’ve sent to before, press

Control-k

For check names.  You can arrow down through that list and press enter.

Hello Judy,

 

In addition to using the CTRL key with the various numbers to move between parts of Outlook, you can use CTRL with Shift and B while composing a message to bring up the address book.  In the resulting dialog box you can show the list by names listed alphabetically by choosing the “Name only” radio button.  There is a combo box from which you can pick the applicable contacts list to search.  When you start typing a name in the search box you can tab to the Go button and use it.  Tab again and you will find a list of names starting with the one you typed in the search box.  Use up or down arrow keys to move up or down the list of names.  When the name you want is in focus tab to whichever button applies to the field in which you want the name to be placed.  There are three buttons, a “To”, a “CC” and a “BCC” button.  After using spacebar on the button that applies, tab to and use the OK button.  This dialog box can be used while composing a new message,. Replying to a message or forwarding a message.

I have a BT dongle and if you plug it in and have a BT device such as a headphone paired to the computer, the sound will be diverted to it. You could probably reroute the sound if you could access the sound mixer but once the bt is connected you must use it for the sound source.
