Hi Brian, I too have been looking for a way to get rid of tables but keep the text. Your second option works great for me.

 

Thanks for sharing.

Hello Jerry,

 

Here are a couple methods that you can try.

 

If you have many tables in the document you can list them using JAWS key with CTRL and T.  After doing so use down arrow key to find the table you want to work in and press enter to move focus there.

 

With the cursor located in the table press the Alt key to move focus to the top part of the ribbon.  After doing so press J followed by L followed by V. 

In the resulting “Convert table to text” dialog box you can choose how to replace the column dividers.  The default is by using tabs.  If you want to use a space instead of a tab then choose the down arrow key to the “Other” radio button.  Press spacebar when focus goes into the edit box. 

Tab to OK and press spacebar. 

 

If your keyboard has a number pad you can do the following:

 

Move focus into the table. 

Use JAWS key 3 (the number above E).

Immediately use Alt with the number 5 on the number pad.  This selects the entire table.

Use CTRL X to cut the selection.

Without moving the cursor immediately use the application key and move down to the pasting options.  Arrow right to the Keep Text Only option and use enter key.

 

This second method is quick but the tabs are still left.

 

You can then proceed to select and delete the text you don’t want to keep.   

 

If after pasting and keeping text only you want to get rid of the tabs you can select the text that you pasted and use Find and Replace.  After selecting the text use CTRL with H.  In the Find What box use a caret with T (that is shift key with 6 followed immediately with 6).  Tab to the Replace With box and press spacebar.  Tab to the Replace All button and use spacebar.  Word will tell you it has finished with the selection and ask if it should check the rest of the document and you can answer “No.”

 

Take care.

Yes. Now there is another problem. Within some of the tables is text that I need to keep. So, what is the process for keeping the text, which I know is contradictory to my previous inquiry. Sorry.

Afternoon all.

 

Using Jaws 2018, Windows 10 on a Dell laptop, I am trying to remove a series of tables, along with its text, from a Word 13 document. I know that this has been discussed previously, but I cannot remember the process. Any help in this will be helpful. Please forgive the sometimers.

Hello Jerry,

 

I noticed an error in the message I just sent.  When you use the Find and Replace dialog in the Find What box use caret with T, (that is Shift with 6 followed by T).  I accidently put that it is Shift with 6 followed by 6.  Here is the revised message:

If you use the  temp place marker, you can put a place marker and go to where you want to stop selecting and press insert + space bar and the letter M, and that selects up to where you are, then you can press delete.
To get to where you want to stop selecting, just use the normal navigation keys before you press insert + space bar and then M.

Hi Richard,

Other than deleting them all and pasting them in the order you want the
only way I've found is using Drag and Drop. 2 different ways of dragging
and dropping are below.

Use the key strokes, (CTRL+INSERT+NUM PAD SLASH) for Drag and Drop .
This is used to drag items from one location and drop them in another.
Position the JAWS Cursor on the item you wish to move and press
CTRL+INSERT+NUM
PAD SLASH. You can leave the JAWS Cursor active, or you can switch to the PC
Cursor. JAWS will keep speaking as you navigate. Once you have positioned
the JAWS or PC Cursor in the location to which you would like to move the
item, press CTRL+INSERT+NUM PAD SLASH again, and the item will be moved to
the position of the active cursor.


From: David Bailes
Hi,
you can drag them to another location using the Jaws cursor:
1. Move to the program's button that you want to move.
2. Press Insert + Numpad Minus to route the Jaws Cursor to the PC cursor,
and then press Insert + Numpad Slash to lock the left mouse button, in other
words, start holding it down.
3. Press Numpad Plus to switch back to using the PC cursor, and then press
either Left Arrow or Right Arrow the number of times which is the number of
positions which you want to move the program either to the left or right
respectively. This moves the PC cursor to the position where you want the
program
to end up.
4. Press Insert + Numpad Minus to route the Jaws cursor to the PC cursor,
and press Insert + Numpad Slash to unlock the left mouse button, in other
words,
stop holding it down.
5. Finally, press Numpad Plus to switch back to the PC cursor.
David.

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

Hi Richard,

Other than deleting them all and pasting them in the order you want the
only way I've found is using Drag and Drop. 2 different ways of dragging
and dropping are below.

Use the key strokes, (CTRL+INSERT+NUM PAD SLASH) for Drag and Drop .
This is used to drag items from one location and drop them in another.
Position the JAWS Cursor on the item you wish to move and press
CTRL+INSERT+NUM
PAD SLASH. You can leave the JAWS Cursor active, or you can switch to the PC
Cursor. JAWS will keep speaking as you navigate. Once you have positioned
the JAWS or PC Cursor in the location to which you would like to move the
item, press CTRL+INSERT+NUM PAD SLASH again, and the item will be moved to
the position of the active cursor.

Hi,
you can drag them to another location using the Jaws cursor:
1. Move to the program's button that you want to move.
2. Press Insert + Numpad Minus to route the Jaws Cursor to the PC cursor,
and then press Insert + Numpad Slash to lock the left mouse button, in other
words, start holding it down.
3. Press Numpad Plus to switch back to using the PC cursor, and then press
either Left Arrow or Right Arrow the number of times which is the number of
positions which you want to move the program either to the left or right
respectively. This moves the PC cursor to the position where you want the
program to end up.
4. Press Insert + Numpad Minus to route the Jaws cursor to the PC cursor,
and press Insert + Numpad Slash to unlock the left mouse button, in other
words, stop holding it down.
5. Finally, press Numpad Plus to switch back to the PC cursor.
David.

Take care. Mike. Sent from my iBarstool. Go dodgers!
I believe that everything happens for a reason. Usually, the reason is that
somebody screwed up.

Is there a way to check and perhaps rearrange the order of things that are
pinned to the task bar?

Hi Bob,
 
On the top row of the numpad the Numpad slash is directly to the right of the Numlock On & off button, directly above the #8 key.
Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go dodgers!

Key Identification Mode

Rebecca Lineberger
 

If you press insert-1 (on the top of the keyboard) JAWS says, on.

You can press a key to learn what it is and what it does.  If you press the key twice quickly, it will give you more information.  To turn Identification mode off, press insert-1 again.  JAWS will say, off.

Re: external number pad

Glenn / Lenny
 

Hi,
Is the one you got USB or bluetooth?
Does Windows see it, or does Jaws just not recognize it?
If the latter is the case, there may be a setting to tell Jaws to use it.
If Windows isn't seeing it, I'd figure out why that is the case.

Subject: [jaws-users] external number pad

recommendations for an external number pad (either wired or bluetooth) that is compatible with JAWS? my student has a surface pro and the external number pad we bought to provide the insert/home keys etc does not work...running Windows 10
thanks!
