Re: Conversion of text document to word document

Richard:
Okay. I followed your instruction for trying to open it under the open with option, and all I had to choose from was either notepad, wordpad, or choose an app from the store. So, I tried to re-save it as a word document, but under the file tab, the option for saving as is not there. So I will try to copy the text and paste it into a blank document and then resave it as a document and see what happens. Thanks to all who offered advice and suggestions.

If it is a file you have saved, why not just open it in Word, then your formatting should pretty much stay the same. You may get a dialog about conversion, just hit enter on the default.
Then when saving, hit f12 and make sure the format is docx.

Morning all.

 

Using jaws 2019, word 13 and windows 10 on a dell laptop, I was needing to find out if I can save a WordPad text document as a Word 13 document, and if so, what are the steps? And would there be any issues in format? Thanks.

Enhancements in JAWS 2019.1907.31 (August 2019)

The following is a list of improvements made in JAWS 2019 between the
June
2019 update and the August 2019 update.
list of 14 items
• This update fixes an issue encountered by some users where JAWS was
not reading as expected in the Windows 10 Start menu. If you are
experiencing this problem, open JAWS Settings Center, press
CTRL+SHIFT+D to load the Default File, type "start" into the search
edit box, and then toggle the control
called:
"Start menu: Access-Out-of-Process" so that it is checked.
• In response to customer feedback, JAWS sounds such as when
INSERT+SPACEBAR is pressed to enter Layered Keys mode are no longer
muted when Speech On Demand is active.
• Addressed an issue where the Text Analyzer keystrokes were not being
found when using the JAWS Commands Search feature (INSERT+SPACEBAR, J).
• When creating meeting requests using the Outlook calendar, resolved
an issue where new attendee information was not being reliably
indicated in either speech or braille.
• Resolved a reported issue where the keystrokes to read message
headers in Outlook, ALT+1 through 4 on the number row, were not working
in Windows 7.
• Resolved an issue where returning to an open Outlook email after
exiting a Word Document would result in your cursor landing at the top
of the email rather than the previous location where you were reading.
• Resolved an issue in Microsoft Office where JAWS was not reporting
if an endnote or footnote had been inserted with speech even though
Braille was correctly identifying the information.
• Addressed an issue in Word 2016 reported by SSA where JAWS would
repeat the last line of the document after completing a Say All
(INSERT+DOWN ARROW).
• Addressed a reported issue where the spelling buzzer to indicate a
misspelled word was still being heard even when the "Detect spelling
while typing"
option in setting Center was disabled.
• In Microsoft Teams, resolved an issue where JAWS was speaking
incoming message and call notifications multiple times.
• When navigating by character in secure password fields in Chrome and
Firefox, resolved an issue where JAWS was saying "star" multiple times
for each character.
• Addressed a reported issue in Chrome where typing in contracted
Braille was not working as expected.
• Resolved a customer reported issue with SQL Server Management Studio
where JAWS was not properly navigating and reading a results Data grid.
• Resolved an issue reported by international Braille users where
incorrect Unicode characters were being entered using computer braille
under certain circumstances.

This is all working fine and the Start menu fix works for me.
Now, maybe by 2020 Jaws will again read in the Settings area of Windows 10.
I have to use Narrator when I go to Settings in my Windows 10 64 bit Home.

Enhancements in JAWS 2019.1907.31 (August 2019)

The following is a list of improvements made in JAWS 2019 between the
June
2019 update and the August 2019 update.
list of 14 items
• This update fixes an issue encountered by some users where JAWS was
not reading as expected in the Windows 10 Start menu. If you are
experiencing this problem, open JAWS Settings Center, press
CTRL+SHIFT+D to load the Default File, type "start" into the search
edit box, and then toggle the control
called:
"Start menu: Access-Out-of-Process" so that it is checked.
• In response to customer feedback, JAWS sounds such as when
INSERT+SPACEBAR is pressed to enter Layered Keys mode are no longer
muted when Speech On Demand is active.
• Addressed an issue where the Text Analyzer keystrokes were not being
found when using the JAWS Commands Search feature (INSERT+SPACEBAR, J).
• When creating meeting requests using the Outlook calendar, resolved
an issue where new attendee information was not being reliably
indicated in either speech or braille.
• Resolved a reported issue where the keystrokes to read message
headers in Outlook, ALT+1 through 4 on the number row, were not working in Windows 7.
• Resolved an issue where returning to an open Outlook email after
exiting a Word Document would result in your cursor landing at the top
of the email rather than the previous location where you were reading.
• Resolved an issue in Microsoft Office where JAWS was not reporting
if an endnote or footnote had been inserted with speech even though
Braille was correctly identifying the information.
• Addressed an issue in Word 2016 reported by SSA where JAWS would
repeat the last line of the document after completing a Say All
(INSERT+DOWN ARROW).
• Addressed a reported issue where the spelling buzzer to indicate a
misspelled word was still being heard even when the "Detect spelling
while typing"
option in setting Center was disabled.
• In Microsoft Teams, resolved an issue where JAWS was speaking
incoming message and call notifications multiple times.
• When navigating by character in secure password fields in Chrome and
Firefox, resolved an issue where JAWS was saying "star" multiple times
for each character.
• Addressed a reported issue in Chrome where typing in contracted
Braille was not working as expected.
• Resolved a customer reported issue with SQL Server Management Studio
where JAWS was not properly navigating and reading a results Data grid.
• Resolved an issue reported by international Braille users where
incorrect Unicode characters were being entered using computer braille
under certain circumstances.

Re: JAWS randomly jumps up on web pages

I am having the opposite issue. Jaws jumps to the bottom of a web page. It mainly happens when exiting a text entry field. I have only noticed this behavior with Jaws 2019. I only use Firefox.

Hi all,

I'm sorry if I don't explain this well, but I have a problem reading (mostly larger) webpages in both Firefox and Google Chrome (using the latest version of JAWS 2019). When I try to read a page or scroll through it using the arrow keys, at seemingly random moments both speech and Braille jump up a screen or to the top of the webpage. This happens mostly with larger sites such as my feed reader or blogs. I have already disabled auto refresh. What else can I do to prevent th is from happening? Thanks.

If it is a file you have saved, why not just open it in Word, then your formatting should pretty much stay the same. You may get a dialog about conversion, just hit enter on the default.

Then when saving, hit f12 and make sure the format is docx.

Jerry.

See this page. Maybe it will help you clarify.

 

https://helpx.adobe.com/ca/acrobat/using/overview-pdf-portfolios.html

 

So I guess the question remains: What exactly do you want to do? Do you want these files extracted from the portfolio?

Speaking for myself, I have never actually seen or worked with this type of pdf before, but, they exist, and it uses its own compression scheme to pack the files together. So, not a zip file; the reason your context menu items are not the same.

Okay. I have the portfolio saved under another folder. When I go to the folder, and right arrow, it first gives me the created date; then it says “type adobe Acrobat document”. Then I open that folder and I get more subfolders. When I right arrow to the information, I used to get the date, and the type. But it does not list this information now. I even tried closing all of my documents files and folder, and reopening them, but it does no good. Very puzzling/aggravating.

Hm, isn’t there also such a thing as a “comprssed pdf” file, though?

So I guess the question is, is this really a zip file you are looking at?

 

If it is a zip file, you can actually open it like you would any other folder by pressing enter. If you want the files located/copies elsewhere, all you would have to do is hit ctrl-a to select all, ctrl-c to copy, then move to/open your folder of choice and paste the items there.

 

Again though, it sounds like this might be a different sort of compressed animal entirely.

Hi,

Are you trying to open / extract it with Adobe?

You should extract files in a windows file folder first, and then go to that folder to find your file.

Afternoon all.

 

Using JAWS latest version, Word 13 and Windows 10 on a Dell laptop.

 

I downloaded a compressed portfolio of different files. I have been attempting to unzip the files, and when I press the applications option, I do get the choice for extracting from portfolio. When I press enter on this, it brings up a dialogue for saving it. But not for extracting it. Also, using the shift f10 applications process, I used to get an option for saving it as a word document. But not now. Any ideas/suggestions will be welcome. I am also using Adobe Acrobat DC. Thanks.

Re: something broke with JAWS 1907

Jim I shaving the exact same issue as I am; I'm using Office 2019, not 365. I also did the update through JAWS. Franily, it shouldn't make a difference.

I did the update through the Check for Updates process, I did not do a fresh install of Jaws.

Jim,
Just for the record, did you download an install file, or did you do
the update from within Jaws?

Using the latest Windows 10 1903 update, Jaws 2019 Update, and
Outlook 365, pressing the down arrow key will often read nothing at
all. It is possible to use both up and down arrow keys and Jaws will
eventually read the list, but this inconsistent use of the down arrow
keys to read through the list of messages did not happen before the
August update, at least on this computer.
Thanks.

Now when I'm in my inbox and going down my list of messages, and
delete one, JAWS will say zero items instead of automatically moving
to the next one

as
is expected behavior.
Please fix this, guys!!
I haven't changed any settings.

Jerry.

See this page. Maybe it will help you clarify.

 

https://helpx.adobe.com/ca/acrobat/using/overview-pdf-portfolios.html

 

So I guess the question remains: What exactly do you want to do? Do you want these files extracted from the portfolio?

Speaking for myself, I have never actually seen or worked with this type of pdf before, but, they exist, and it uses its own compression scheme to pack the files together. So, not a zip file; the reason your context menu items are not the same.

Okay. I have the portfolio saved under another folder. When I go to the folder, and right arrow, it first gives me the created date; then it says “type adobe Acrobat document”. Then I open that folder and I get more subfolders. When I right arrow to the information, I used to get the date, and the type. But it does not list this information now. I even tried closing all of my documents files and folder, and reopening them, but it does no good. Very puzzling/aggravating.
