Re: Cursor Location In Word

Adrian Spratt
 

Glenn,

A two-part answer, the first of which I know is true.

Press alt-delete to determine how many inches you’re in from the left edge. That’s assuming you have MS word to measure in inches.

Here’s where I think I’m right, but I haven’t Googled to confirm. I believe ten spaces equals one inch.

If both parts are true, four inches from the left would give you your forty spaces.

Hi,

Using Jaws 2018, and MS Word 2000.

But I think the command would be the same regardless of Word version.

I need a way to read where I am in a document so I can tell if three lines are all approximately 40 spaces in from the left edge.

Thanks

Re: turning of table header info temporarily or permanently

Stephen Bennett <sbennett5252@...>
 

Hi Robin

 

For the announcing of column and row numbers, look in quick settings for Cell coordinates Announcement

For column and row titles, The setting you want is in Quick Settings and it's called "Override Bookmark Headers". Once you turn this on the other options become available below it. You can adjust this for either all files or the current file.

 

hope this helps.

Subject: [jaws-users] turning of table header info temporarily or permanently

 

When I am editing tables in Word, I am often more confused by the way JAWS reads the row and column label information by default.  What setting do I need to turn this off so JAWS only reads cell contents?  I just looked in Quick Settings and the three available options for tables did not seem appropriate.

Open the run dialog with Windows-r.

can not check or uncheck
anything.  Any place there are
check marks I can not tell if
they are checked or unchecked.
Everytime I have installed
jaws, it has been from the
freedomscientific website.  If
anyone has any suggestions on
this I will greatly appreciate
it.  Jaws 17 and jaws 18 both
work just fine.  Does anyone
