sandy
 

I have jaws 17 on 3 computers, and have found that different browsers work differently from each other, and would like to know what is the best browser to use with jaws 17


Outlook WLM

Holger Fiallo <hfiallo@...>
 

Using WLM at this time. I just install office 365 and I am checking outlook. Question. Can I tranfer my folders that I created in WLM to outlook along withthe many emails that I got? Using jaws 2019, W10 and office 365.

Re: What is Leasey

David Goldfield
 

Hi, Annette.

Yes, Leasey does contain a few commands to make spellchecking a bit easier, including keyboard shortcuts to move to the next or previous spelling error and the next/previous grammatical error.

Hi David,

 

Thank you so much for your descriptions of the Leasey products.  I had not previously been aware of it.  As others have already stated, the features that simplify the user interface targets a specific population who can benefit from something like this.  This is a growing population as more and more seniors are experiencing sight loss. This transition to the use of JAWS is difficult. 

 

The feature that jumped out at me as an advanced user is the spell check assistance.  I am so frustrated with how JAWS and Microsoft are not playing together when it comes to this. 

 

Thanks for sharing.

Annette

Hi.

I've already addressed this topic in some detail in my previous message Leasey is really two separate pieces of software. Leasey Basic can be ideal for beginners as you correctly said. I think it would also be appropriate for some users with cognitive challenges. In fact, when I used to train students I worked with a few who had some cognitive issues who could have really benefited from a program like this.

Leasey Advanced, however, is for the intermediate and advanced JAWS user and adds a ton of additional features to the ones already offered by JAWS You can visit Leasey Central for more information.

I’ve never really been convinced that it would be that useful to me, but it’s designed to run over top of JAWS (indeed, it’s mostly a set of JAWS scripts, I believe). It seems to alter the Windows interface experience. Although the sales pitch says it has “advanced features”, it looks like it might be more useful to a beginner, or someone who just cannot get used to using Windows in the standard way. It doesn’t seem like a lot of people on the list use it – anyone want to pipe up who actually does?

I saw an adfor a program that is supposed to work with JAWS and it is called Leasey. Are there any users of this app and is it helpful to have working with JAWS? Is there a good reason to use it and is it truly compatible?

Re: Can Install a Program, But Can't Find It

JM Casey
 

HI.
Maybe the desktop shortcut did not get created for some reason.
You could go to the programme's executable and make one yourself, but if there are any additional switches that have to be invoked at startup, you wouldn't necessarily know what those were.
You say it's in programmes and features though. That's your Windows 10 start menu, no?
I don't know, I usually just run stuff with the run command nowadays. The windows 10 search box, invoked with the start key, works pretty well, too. The menus and desktops have gotten less and less useful over time, in my view.

Hi, Folks. I'm using Windows 10 and Jaws 2019. I tried to install Microsoft Flight Simulator. While it successfully installed, I couldn't find it in the Programs list at the Start Menu. Am also using the Classic Shell. However, under Programs and Features, it shows up as one of many programs installed on my computer.

Yes, I did that, and it lives in the Programs86 folder. However, I can't get the program to show up on my programs menu or desktop, even though it's st up to do that. Can't even start the program from its folder. Thoughts?--Matthew Chao

Re: office 365

Mike B. <mike9902@...>
 

Hi Holger,
 
I can't help with the user guide for Office 365 but, here's where you can check for the Outlook.exe file to create a desktop shortcut.
1. Open your Run dialogue with, Windows key + r, and type either, C:/, and press enter or type a, \ = backslash, and press enter.
2. This puts you on the root of your C drive.  Now look in the, Program Files 86 folder for Microsoft Office or whatever folder contains Office 365.  This folder will contain the Office 365 files / folders if it's a 32 bit version but, if it's a 64 bit version look in the Program Files folder.
3. When you find the correct folder press enter to open it.  Now look for sub-folders that might be labeled as Office 16 or Office 18 or something similar.  I can't be exact because I've neve used Office 365.  When you find the correct sub-folder it could have over 200 files / folders in here so, type, outlook.exe, to find this file.
4. When you locate the, Outlook.exe, file you want to open your context menu by pressing your applications key or Shift + F10.
5. With the context menu open arrow down to, Sub-menu Send To, and press enter.  Now arrow down to, Desktop create shortcut, and press enter.  You will now have an Outlook shortcut on your desktop.
Take care.  Go Rams!

Re: Outlook2010 and Jaws2019: do they work together?

Ken Chernack
 

Thanks for the idea.

I just called them.

They have had other phone calls on this problem and other issues that are random.

The support person could only say 'the update process for you was not stable, and thus you were left with a problem.'

 

Well, that's not a 'real' answer IMHO.

But I am not going backwards since I have installed Outlook2016 and it is working just fine.

 

For me the lesson learned is practice what I preach to friends and keep your software versions updated and current.

 

Onward to Sunday football… be well,

Ken

Subject: [jaws-users] Outlook2010 and Jaws2019: do they work together?

 

Hi. Here's a small mystery. Got any ideas?

 

I upgraded to Jaws2019 and maintenance release more than 2 weeks ago. I am using Windows10 all patches.

I have been using Office2010, but have talked to my software support person about upgrading to Office2016 during the upcoming months.

 

Outlook2010 was working okay, except for a connection/not responding issue, that I attributed to the AOL/Verizon servers acting flakey.

If I rebooted, life returned to normal for 2 or 5 or 30 minutes of usage.

My wife who does not use Jaws was getting the same problem.

 

So… yesterday I logged in and could not read the text of any emails. in Outlook.

Jaws was functioning with the desktop, other programs and the navigation of within Jaws.

It just wasn't reading the content of emails… and I checked plain-text emails and HTML emails.

It worked for the past 2 weeks but not now.

 

My software support person cleaned up some add-ins I did not need as he was trying to fix the connection issue, but nothing else.

 

So, I called The Sparrow Tech Support number.

She said "we do not support Office2010 and its products. Upgrade."

 

Okay, I knew that was coming but she provided no other wisdom/knowledge as to why it worked for 2 weeks and then stopped working.

 

What gives? Might you know.

 

BTW, I upgraded to Microsoft 2016 and am back in business reading/filing emails.

 

Might this issue occur in Excel2010 and Word2010 which I use also?

 

Thanks for your comments.

 

Ken

Open the e-mail you want to get the e-mail address.
 
Shift+F6.
 
Shift+Tab till you get to the address, or , From, field.
