Pathways to Literary- Laptop Command Guide

Michelle Bernstein <hamletsweetlady@...>
 

Hi everyone,

Thank you for all your very helpful responses about whether to purchase an external keyboard with a num pad for my laptop.  I have decided to go ahead and teach myself JAWS with the laptop commands instead of the desk top commands.  We will see how it goes- big smile!

I found this online guide to learning JAWS with laptop commands put out by an organization called Pathways to Literary.  Is anyone familiar with this organization? At first perusal, the guide looks very helpful for beginners like me and here is the link:


I am listening to the beginner audio tutorials from JAWS which are helpful, but seem dated with their references to DVD installations and JAWS version 9 and so forth. Not sure why a more current version is unavailable, but perhaps it is not necessary as the basic commands do not vary much over time.

Thanks again for all your assistance. It is much appreciated.

Regards, Michelle

Is there a way to set collum and ro titles?

 

Also, how do I use the fine feature?

 

Thanks,

Subject: [jaws-users] A Jaws and fire fox question

Hi I have A open drive link and when I am using in fire fox I space on select all and then the page changes to another apart of the page.

I used to have it when I hit the select all button and then I could then hit the down load button and the file would down load.

So what do I need to change to make this happen like it used to?

I don't remember ehat I changed to make this not work correctly like it used to.

it should already be in the applications list. its called windows live mail.
while wlm is loaded press the jaws and 6 keys to open the script manager.
try pressing the jaws and t key to hear the title of the script file wlm is
useing.
if it is not windows live mail tab to the application list to see if the
windows live mail script is in the list.
i'm not sure on this. but once it is highlighted i think you only have to
close the script manager and it would then be associated with the wlm program.

When you are on a message, it's selected already.
You can hold the shift key and arrow through consecutive messages and move
them.
You can search for a bunch and select some or all of them and move them.
On maximizing, do alt + Space, and X.
I think windows + up arrow maximizes too.

Re: number of lines in a document

 

Hi Mike,

 

Thanks for refreshing my memory that Insert + Pagedown reads the status bar and for restating the steps in Word to pick what you want displayed in the status bar. If I keep reviewing this stuff enough, perhaps I'll be able to make it stick in this aging memory.

Hi Alan,

 

You can also set the status bar to announce only what you want announced when invoking the read status bar keystroke, Insert + Pagedown, using the F6 key by doing the following.

 

To show number of lines, line number, or many other options  in the status bar in Word try the following:
1. Press F6 until Status bar is highlighted.  Or, until you hear Jaws report, Status Toolbar.  It should be the 2nd press of the F6 key.
2. Press Shift + F10 to show options.  This keystroke must be used because a right mouse click or pressing the application key will not.
3. Down arrow through the available options, and when you have found line count or something else of interest press the spacebar to check or uncheck the item.
4. when done making modifications simply press AltF4 or the escape key.
5. Review your status line to insure the settings have been properly modified.

 

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

The status bar info is handy but it shows you the line number where the cursor is positioned on the particular page in the document, not the total number of lines in the document. The alt + r + w hotkey provided by Justin opens a word count dialog which is faster and includes a lot of helpful info including total lines in the document.

Re: thunderbird questions

valiant8086
 

Hi.


Some of these, like your wlm import, I don't know the answer to. But I do know about the rules thing. I used to use rules in thunderbird, so the answer that is yes, it works. I have about that many folders, and back in the day, I let Thunderbird move the messages about. These days though, with gmail, I let gmail itself apply labels to mails and skip the inbox, so that all my email clients will have messages filtered into the proper places, and if I need to start fresh with a copy of thunderbird, which happens from time to time as it starts slowing down more and more over time, I get about a year's use out of a single copy before it becomes a real issue.


I like Thunderbird, but the sluggishness over time thing is a bother. I wish there was a better option. But I'm stuck with Thunderbird because when I group messages by conversation / thread, the layout is exactly what I want, very similar to Outlook Express, even better though. Outlook modern not express version, when it groups by thread /conversation, it shows the thread and I have to open it up to get the sender and such for the first message, it's just an extra step that I don't want to deal with. Mixed blessings.

Re: number of lines in a document

Rebecca Lineberger
 

You’re welcome.  We learn new things all the time.

I played around in Word, trying to get it to number each line consecutively in a document.  This would be necessary, I assume, to tell someone else what line number was needed.  I followed directions I found in Google and either it did not work, perhaps there is a useful bit I did not do, or JAWS is not reading the line numbers as I arrow through the document.  I checked the status bar and it was still counting lines for each page. 

But I did rediscover the other options in the go to menu.  Press f5 or control-g.  Tab to the list of options.   

We don’t remember all the commands and choices in a program unless we use them all the time.

Sorry.  I just re-read the original request and you’re correct.  I have my number of lines checked because I often would like to know where I am on that particular page.  I’ve never needed to know the number of lines in a document, so I missed that distinction.

Rebecca,

 

The status bar info is handy but it shows you the line number where the cursor is positioned on the particular page in the document, not the total number of lines in the document. The alt + r + w hotkey provided by Justin opens a word count dialog which is faster and includes a lot of helpful info including total lines in the document.

This works for me.

Press f6 till you hear

Status bar tool bar

Press the context menu key or shift-f10.

You will be in a list of items.  Either arrow down or tab and check what you want.  I have page number, line number and word count checked.

Press escape as needed to get back to your document.

I know how to get Jaws to tell me what page I am on and how many words in a document, but is there a way for me to find out how many lines in a document without physically having to count them?

 

Re: number of lines in a document

 

Rebecca,

 

I still very much appreciated your post because I was unaware of the helpful info pressing the F6 key in Word would provide. I've added your F6 tip to my Excel sheet of hotkeys.

Perhaps not, as I don't know if WE uses a video intercept for TTS.

When you are on a message, it's selected already.
You can hold the shift key and arrow through consecutive messages and move them.
You can search for a bunch and select some or all of them and move them.
On maximizing, do alt + Space, and X.
I think windows + up arrow maximizes too.

are you useing something other then the standard windows color scheme and

have you checked to see if jaws has the correct script file associated with
wlm?
i don't have your problem with folders not being spoken with wlm 2012,
window
eyes, jaws 2019 or nvda. they all work.
