I can’t speak for firefox, but for chrome, the latest version. If you have chrome, and are not sure if you have the latest version, just go to help, about chrome, and update it.

Hello,

Can’t believe I don’t know the answer to this, so humbly asking.  Here’s my scenario.  I copy some text in Word 2016 Windows 10.  In the process of moving to where I want to paste it, I see something else I want to edit and, before I realize it,  I have accidentally copied some new text to the clipboard.  Is there a way to go back into Clipboard history to get to the previous item that I copied?  I have a note that Windows V will go to the clipboard, but this doesn’t seem to do anything.    Runnign JAWS 2019.

 

Thanks in advance.  Please save me from the crazy gymnastics I just went through to get back to the original text I was trying to move in my document.

Re: Clipboard help

Robin,

 

I start out with bad news before getting to the solution. I thought it would be helpful to lay out the options.

 

It sounds like you’re using the regular MS clipboard. If so, I know of no way of recovering a selection if you make a subsequent copy. Well, you could use the JAWS speech history feature, which preserves the last fifty lines of text. The keystrokes are JAWS key+spacebar, release, then h. I doubt that would help you at this point in this instance.

 

Windows has two clipboards. Here’s what Ann Byrne posted about them some time ago. I agree with her that the second doesn’t work reliably:

 

If you are using MS Office, there are two clipboards: One is the windows clipboard which by default retains one and only one item; the second is the Office clipboard, reached with alt-h, then f, then o. the office clipboard allegedly holds 24 distinct items, any of which can be retrieved. In my experience copying to the Office clipboard isn't always reliable. sometimes I have two items when I should have three, for example. Nonetheless, it is available if you have Office. JAWS appends to the windows clipboard, rather than the Office clipboard.

 

Note. It looks like you can view the contents of the Office clipboard by pressing JAWS key+spacebar, releasing, then pressing c. Ann refers to this in a later message, and I just confirmed it shows what’s there.

 

However, FS has its own clipboard that seems pretty reliable. I’ll copy below what FS has to say about it. I just re-tested the steps to make sure they work. I’ve slightly edited this FS text to account for updates.

 

FS. To add text to the Clipboard, select it using the text selection commands, and then press Jaws Key+WINDOWS Key+C. The text is appended to the end of any text already on the Clipboard. To paste all the text that you have placed on the Clipboard so far, use the Windows Paste command (CTRL+V). The text is inserted into your document at the current location of the cursor. Each block of text that you copied is separated by a blank line.

Note: If you attempt to add the same selection of text to the Clipboard more than once, the text is not added. This feature is intended to reduce unintentional duplication.

All formatting is removed from text that you copy using the FSClipboard feature. This can be useful in programs like Microsoft Word if you do not want to include styles, numbering, and other formatting information when you paste text into a document.

If you want to replace all of the text on the Clipboard with a new text selection, use CTRL+C or CTRL+X instead of WINDOWS Key+C. JAWS asks if you want to overwrite your previously saved items. Choose Yes to replace all the text on the Clipboard with the new selection.

file type association

Lenny McHugh
 

First this is a win 7 machine. I messed up a file association. A friend sent me a file to be printed. I did not have a program to print a .psd file so I instructed it to try to use adobe. Here the file is from photoshop and I do not have that. Anyway when I tried to use adobe it set the association. I have been looking around for about an hour where do I remove the association for the psd file?

This is after the fact, but I suggest that you install a little utility called Ditto that keeps track of your clipboard history so that you can retrieve previous clips as needed.  It places an icon in the system tray, which, when accessed, lists all your previous clips.  You just scroll down the list for the clip you want, hit enter, and the clip is placed back on the clipboard, ready for pasting into the appropriate edit field.  It even saves your clipboard history when you shut down your computer so that you don't lose it unless you choose to delete it.  Without such a utility, I don't know of any way of retrieving previous clipboard clips:

Re: file type association

Steve
 

Lenny,
 
Two ways, depending on which is more convenient for you.  (Note: I don't have a Win 7 machine any more, but the procedure is the same as far as I know in Windows 10.
 
Method 1: Right-click on the file, then go to the change button.  
You should get that familiar dialog about selecting a program to use to open that file.
 
Method 2:  Go to Control Panel; Default Programs; (In Windows 10 it is called default apps, but otherwise it is the same.
 
It will list several programs such as default email program, default music player, default web browser, et c. 
 
If you shift tab, you should find links like default by protocol; and default file associations.  Hit enter on file associations.
 
The pain-in-the-butt with this is that you will probably have to scan down the list until you find the right extension, in your case .psd.  I couldn't get first-letter navigation to work (even by pressing period and then the letter P); so good luck which ever way you approach it.
 
Take my advice -- I don't use it anyway.

Windows 10, 1809 Clipboard

Rebecca Lineberger
 

Here it is, straight from Microsoft.  Text and link below.  Note, there are some limitations.

I have not played with this, but the Windows key-v does work.

Rebecca

How to use the new clipboard on Windows 10 October 2018 Update

Windows 10 introduces a new clipboard experience, and in this guide, we'll show you how to use it.

MAURO HUCULAK

4 Oct 2018

On Windows 10, you've been able to copy and paste text and images for a long time, but it's been an experience somewhat limited that only supported copying

one piece of content at a time and no interface to view the things you copied.

 

To overcome these limitations and to make the experience more useful, starting with the

October 2018 Update,

Windows 10 introduces a new clipboard that tracks the text and images (up to 4MB) that you copy. Also, you can finally view and paste content from the

clipboard history, and even pin items that you copy and paste more frequently.

 

In addition, leveraging the same cloud technology use to sync your Timeline content, your clipboard history can now roam and be accessible across all your

devices.

In this

Windows 10 guide,

we'll walk you through the steps to set up and use the new cloud-powered clipboard experience included with the October 2018 Update.

How to enable clipboard on Windows 10

 

On Windows 10 version 1809, you can enable the new clipboard experience using the Settings app and the new keyboard shortcut.

 

Enabling clipboard using Settings

 

To enable clipboard in the Settings app, use these steps:

 

list of 4 items

1.

Open Settings .

2.

Click on System .

3.

Click on Clipboard .

4.

Turn on the Clipboard history toggle switch.

 

Enabling clipboard using a shortcut

 

Alternatively, to enable clipboard using a keyboard shortcut, use these steps:

 

list of 2 items

1.

Use the Windows key + V  keyboard shortcut.

2.

Click the Turn on button.

 

list end

 

After completing the steps, you can start using the clipboard experience and manage many other settings.

 

Disabling clipboard on Windows 10

 

The clipboard history device using the sis disabled by default, but you can check or disable it if the feature is turned on using these steps:

 

list of 4 items

1.

Open Settings .

2.

Click on System .

3.

Click on Clipboard .

4.

Turn off the Clipboard history toggle switch.

 

list end

 

Once you've completed the steps, the new clipboard experience will no longer be available without affecting the old clipboard functionality.

 

How to sync clipboard history on Windows 10

 

Perhaps one of the most interesting features about the new clipboard is the ability to paste text and images on your other devices. However, for privacy

reasons, it's a feature that you must enable and configure manually using these steps:

 

list of 5 items

1.

Open Settings .

2.

Click on System .

3.

Click on Clipboard .

4.

Under "Sync across devices," turn on the toggle switch.

 

5.

Select the automatic syncing option you want to use:

 

list of 2 items nesting level 1

 Automatically sync text that I copy:  Your clipboard history will sync to the cloud and across your devices.

 Never automatically sync text that I copy:  You must manually open the clipboard history and select the content you want to make available across devices.

 

list end nesting level 1

list end

 

After completing the steps, your content history will sync to the cloud and across devices using the settings you specified.

 

How to clear clipboard history on Windows 10

 

If you want to delete your clipboard history because you no longer want to use experience or something isn't working correctly, and you want to reset the

history to see if that fixes the problem, use these steps:

 

list of 4 items

1.

Open Settings .

2.

Click on System .

3.

Click on Clipboard .

4.

Under "Clear clipboard data," click the Clear button.

 

list end

 

Once you've completed the steps, your clipboard content will be deleted from your device and Microsoft account, but pinned items will remain in the history

until you remove them manually.

 

If you're looking to delete one or two clips, instead of clearing the entire history, you can open the Windows key + V experience, and click the X button

for each content you want to delete. Alternatively, you can also click the Clear all button in the history interface to erase the list.

 

How to use clipboard on Windows 10

 

Although the new clipboard introduces a new interface and several new features, it's not an experience complicated to use.

 

The new clipboard complements the old experience that you already know. Once you upgrade to the October 2018 Update, you can still use the Ctrl + C shortcut

to copy and the Ctrl + V shortcut to paste. The same is true using the right-click context menu.

 

However, you can now use the Windows key + V shortcut to bring up the new clipboard history. In this new interface, you'll find a list of items (such as

text and images) that you have copied from different applications, such as Microsoft Word, Snip & Sketch, OneNote, etc.

 

If you want to copy and paste content from your history, use these steps:

 

list of 5 items

1.

Select the text or image from an application.

2.

Right-click the selection, and click the Copy  or Cut  option.

3.

Open the document you want to paste the content.

4.

Use the Windows key + V shortcut to open the clipboard history.

 

5.

Select the content you want to paste.

list end

 

You can also pin the items that you paste frequently for faster access using these steps:

 

list of 2 items

1.

Use the Windows key + V  shortcut to open the clipboard history.

2.

Click the Pin button for the content you paste frequently.

 

list end

 

When you no longer need the content, click the button again to unpin or the Xbutton to delete the item.

 

Using the clipboard history, there are some obvious limitations as not everything you copy will appear in the history or sync across devices. For example,

you can copy the name of a file, but copying a file to move it to another location will not appear in the history.

 

Also, the cloud clipboard supports images, but only if you copy the image within a document. You cannot copy an image file and expect it to appear in the

history or sync across devices.

 

Wrapping things up

 

Although the new clipboard experience can sync your history across devices, you can only access your history on computers running Windows 10 version 1809

or later and when using the same Microsoft account.

 

If you choose to enable this feature, make sure that you also understand the potential security risks. For example, if you're one of those that usually

copy sensitive information (such as passwords, addresses, names, etc.), anything you copy to the clipboard will store in plain text, and anyone with access

to your computer will now be able to see this information by just using the Windows key + V shortcut. In addition, if you enable the sync option, you'll

also be uploading your history to the Microsoft servers.

Adrian & Rebecca,

Thanks for your compiled information.  I’ll add this to my notes and give them all a try.   What I did today to solve my problem was to keep hitting the Undo command Control Z over and over until I got to where the original text I had cut was back in the document.  That’s not always reliable, but it worked in today’s case.

Re: file type association

Steve, well method 1 is what got me in trouble. When I clicked on the file there was nothing associated with it. So I thought that I could try and open it with adobe reader.

Method 1: Right-click on the file, then go to the change button.  
You should get that familiar dialog about selecting a program to use to open that file.
 
Method 2:  Go to Control Panel; Default Programs; (In Windows 10 it is called default apps, but otherwise it is the same.
 
It will list several programs such as default email program, default music player, default web browser, et c. 
 
If you shift tab, you should find links like default by protocol; and default file associations.  Hit enter on file associations.
 
The pain-in-the-butt with this is that you will probably have to scan down the list until you find the right extension, in your case .psd.  I couldn't get first-letter navigation to work (even by pressing period and then the letter P); so good luck which ever way you approach it.
 
Take my advice -- I don't use it anyway.

Subject: [jaws-users] file type association

First this is a win 7 machine. I messed up a file association. A friend sent me a file to be printed. I did not have a program to print a .psd file so I instructed it to try to use adobe. Here the file is from photoshop and I do not have that. Anyway when I tried to use adobe it set the association. I have been looking around for about an hour where do I remove the association for the psd file?

Re: automatically displaying outlook email

When I get email with complex formatting, I put it into Internet Explorer, as follows:
Alt-h, a, v
It becomes much more manageable.
IE is not my default browser, and this is about the only purpose I use it for.

Re: file type association

Adrian Spratt
 

Try pressing the applications key on the file and arrow down to “Open with…” Not only should this give you the option of another program, there should also be a checkbox asking if you want the application to open all files of this type.

I’m not clear if you have an alternative program in mind. If not, this method may not work for you. But you could always Google the file extension to determine which program works with it.

Steve, well method 1 is what got me in trouble. When I clicked on the file there was nothing associated with it. So I thought that I could try and open it with adobe reader. It now set the association for adobe reader which can not read the file. I can not locate the file type to break the association.

JAWS says "misspelled" during "say all" in Word 2016

Adrian Spratt
 

Hi. I have “autocorrect” turned off in JAWS quick settings. I do have Word set to notify me of misspelled words, but only as I type. I also have the nasty sound turned on for misspelled words in JAWS quick settings, but again, only as I type. However, I can’t find any setting in either JAWS or word that can stop JAWS from saying “misspelled” when I’m reading in “say all.”

 

Word 2016 and JAWS 2019, current release.

 

Any ideas?

Vivaldi browser

JM Casey
 

With all the talk of browsers lately and which ones people are comfortable using, either from an accessibility, privacy or speed standpoint, I decided to start trying some of the alternatives out there. I’ve already had some success with Waterfox. I just installed Vivaldi and took it for a spin. First thing I noticed was that the menus are great and the browser is *extremely* customisable. But there is a lot of clutter when one looks at a page – Vivaldi’s buttons, toolbars etc, offer a lot of extensive options, but JAWS does not aware of how to differentiate this stuff from webpage content, even though the virtual viewer is active.

I’ve already disabled the panel toggle with f4, and I think that improved things a bit, but there’s still a lot of stuff there that, maybe, could be moved to another area of the screen where it’s less invasive?

The tab key also does not really seem to work as expected.

I’m aware that JAWS in particular is only set up to work properly with certain browsers, but I feel like Vivaldi could be very usable with certain tweaks. It seems so customisable that it’d be a shame if it wasn’t.

Has anybody tried it? Any thoughts?

This is after the fact, but I suggest that you install a little utility called Ditto that keeps track of your clipboard history so that you can retrieve previous clips as needed.  It places an icon in the system tray, which, when accessed, lists all your previous clips.  You just scroll down the list for the clip you want, hit enter, and the clip is placed back on the clipboard, ready for pasting into the appropriate edit field.  It even saves your clipboard history when you shut down your computer so that you don't lose it unless you choose to delete it.  Without such a utility, I don't know of any way of retrieving previous clipboard clips:

That sounds like a useful tool for sure.
But I hope that there is no malware that searches for that file as there could be credit card and other sensitive info in the clipboard.

Re: Windows 10, 1809 Clipboard

I should add, that after I copy and paste sensitive information, including passwords, I also copy some meaningless word or something to wipe out the sensitive information that is in my clipboard.

How to use the new clipboard on Windows 10 October 2018 Update

Windows 10 introduces a new clipboard experience, and in this guide, we'll show you how to use it.

MAURO HUCULAK

4 Oct 2018

On Windows 10, you've been able to copy and paste text and images for a long time, but it's been an experience somewhat limited that only supported copying

one piece of content at a time and no interface to view the things you copied.

 

To overcome these limitations and to make the experience more useful, starting with the

October 2018 Update,

Windows 10 introduces a new clipboard that tracks the text and images (up to 4MB) that you copy. Also, you can finally view and paste content from the

clipboard history, and even pin items that you copy and paste more frequently.

 

In addition, leveraging the same cloud technology use to sync your Timeline content, your clipboard history can now roam and be accessible across all your

devices.

In this

Windows 10 guide,

we'll walk you through the steps to set up and use the new cloud-powered clipboard experience included with the October 2018 Update.

How to enable clipboard on Windows 10

 

On Windows 10 version 1809, you can enable the new clipboard experience using the Settings app and the new keyboard shortcut.

 

Enabling clipboard using Settings

 

To enable clipboard in the Settings app, use these steps:

 

list of 4 items

1.

Open Settings .

2.

Click on System .

3.

Click on Clipboard .

4.

Turn on the Clipboard history toggle switch.

 

Enabling clipboard using a shortcut

 

Alternatively, to enable clipboard using a keyboard shortcut, use these steps:

 

list of 2 items

1.

Use the Windows key + V  keyboard shortcut.

2.

Click the Turn on button.

 

list end

 

After completing the steps, you can start using the clipboard experience and manage many other settings.

 

Disabling clipboard on Windows 10

 

The clipboard history device using the sis disabled by default, but you can check or disable it if the feature is turned on using these steps:

 

list of 4 items

1.

Open Settings .

2.

Click on System .

3.

Click on Clipboard .

4.

Turn off the Clipboard history toggle switch.

 

list end

 

Once you've completed the steps, the new clipboard experience will no longer be available without affecting the old clipboard functionality.

 

How to sync clipboard history on Windows 10

 

Perhaps one of the most interesting features about the new clipboard is the ability to paste text and images on your other devices. However, for privacy

reasons, it's a feature that you must enable and configure manually using these steps:

 

list of 5 items

1.

Open Settings .

2.

Click on System .

3.

Click on Clipboard .

4.

Under "Sync across devices," turn on the toggle switch.

 

5.

Select the automatic syncing option you want to use:

 

list of 2 items nesting level 1

 Automatically sync text that I copy:  Your clipboard history will sync to the cloud and across your devices.

 Never automatically sync text that I copy:  You must manually open the clipboard history and select the content you want to make available across devices.

 

list end nesting level 1

list end

 

After completing the steps, your content history will sync to the cloud and across devices using the settings you specified.

 

How to clear clipboard history on Windows 10

 

If you want to delete your clipboard history because you no longer want to use experience or something isn't working correctly, and you want to reset the

history to see if that fixes the problem, use these steps:

 

list of 4 items

1.

Open Settings .

2.

Click on System .

3.

Click on Clipboard .

4.

Under "Clear clipboard data," click the Clear button.

 

list end

 

Once you've completed the steps, your clipboard content will be deleted from your device and Microsoft account, but pinned items will remain in the history

until you remove them manually.

 

If you're looking to delete one or two clips, instead of clearing the entire history, you can open the Windows key + V experience, and click the X button

for each content you want to delete. Alternatively, you can also click the Clear all button in the history interface to erase the list.

 

How to use clipboard on Windows 10

 

Although the new clipboard introduces a new interface and several new features, it's not an experience complicated to use.

 

The new clipboard complements the old experience that you already know. Once you upgrade to the October 2018 Update, you can still use the Ctrl + C shortcut

to copy and the Ctrl + V shortcut to paste. The same is true using the right-click context menu.

 

However, you can now use the Windows key + V shortcut to bring up the new clipboard history. In this new interface, you'll find a list of items (such as

text and images) that you have copied from different applications, such as Microsoft Word, Snip & Sketch, OneNote, etc.

 

If you want to copy and paste content from your history, use these steps:

 

list of 5 items

1.

Select the text or image from an application.

2.

Right-click the selection, and click the Copy  or Cut  option.

3.

Open the document you want to paste the content.

4.

Use the Windows key + V shortcut to open the clipboard history.

 

5.

Select the content you want to paste.

list end

 

You can also pin the items that you paste frequently for faster access using these steps:

 

list of 2 items

1.

Use the Windows key + V  shortcut to open the clipboard history.

2.

Click the Pin button for the content you paste frequently.

 

list end

 

When you no longer need the content, click the button again to unpin or the Xbutton to delete the item.

 

Using the clipboard history, there are some obvious limitations as not everything you copy will appear in the history or sync across devices. For example,

you can copy the name of a file, but copying a file to move it to another location will not appear in the history.

 

Also, the cloud clipboard supports images, but only if you copy the image within a document. You cannot copy an image file and expect it to appear in the

history or sync across devices.

 

Wrapping things up

 

Although the new clipboard experience can sync your history across devices, you can only access your history on computers running Windows 10 version 1809

or later and when using the same Microsoft account.

 

If you choose to enable this feature, make sure that you also understand the potential security risks. For example, if you're one of those that usually

copy sensitive information (such as passwords, addresses, names, etc.), anything you copy to the clipboard will store in plain text, and anyone with access

to your computer will now be able to see this information by just using the Windows key + V shortcut. In addition, if you enable the sync option, you'll

also be uploading your history to the Microsoft servers.
