Re: Files and Folders in Documents Folder

Rebecca Lineberger
 

When you press alt-enter to bring up properties, all you need do then is to press insert-b for JAWS to read the dialogue box.  Just sit back and listen.

If you don’t want to hear all the extra stuff, as soon as you press insert-b, virtualize the window with insert-alt-w.  Now you can arrow through the text with your up and down arrow keys, or left and right arrows or any of the other combinations we use for reading by letter, word or line.  You can also copy and paste.

Press escape to get out of the virtualized window and escape again to get back to your folder or file list.

Hi,

I went to my documents folder and entered on the properties tab. I went through all six tabs and found nothing about size or number of folders. I am using W10 and Jaws 19. I went to my documents folder through this pc.

What am I doing wrong?

Hi.

 

You can place your cursor on the folder or library, hit alt-enter and open the properties box. This will tell you how many files and folders it contains, the size in kilobytes, etc.

Morning all.

 

Using JAWS 2018 and Windows 10 on a Dell laptop, can anyone tell me the procedure for finding out how many files and folders I would have in the My Documents folder? Many thanks.

I am still using office 365 and Jaws 18. I have read the help information and tried what they said. I need to insert a column. The help screen said to Right click on the cell or column and then go to insert. I check entire column and press ok. It inserts a column, but instead of where I want it, it inserts a blank at the first column. Any ideas? Inserting used to be so easy, don’t see why they think they must fix what ain’t broke. Linda

Hello, everyone.

 

I used to be able to read the various fields in an open Outlook 2016 e-mail message using the alt key, followed by the numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, etc..

 

This now no longer works.

Does anyone know if something has changed to no longer make this possible, and is there a work-around?

I just tried this strategy, but had no luck.

 

Once again, the first three fields are the ones that seem to be affected most often.

 

I can’t access them with alt 1, 2, or 3, or by doing an alt and hitting each respective number twice.

 

The message I get says “unavailable”.

 

I noticed this problem within the last few days.

I’m also finding some inconsistency. However, you can pretty much rely on reaching each of those fields by holding down the alt key and pressing the number twice quickly, e.g., alt and 2-2. These are the keystrokes for not just reading, but actually landing in, the field you want. Not ideal, but they enable you to move around a message pretty fast.

Showing Number of Files and Folders in Windows 10

Next, simply route Jaws to PC, then use the up arrow to find the number of

When you are done, press the Escape key to close the properties dialogue.

Re: Editing cells in Excel

Jim Pursley
 

Insert F2 works for me onJAWS 2019 latest gbuild, Win10 and Office 365/Excel 2016.  But I recall that earlier versions of JAWS may not edit cells well.  JAWS 18 came out in November 2016 and even with its updates it may not do the trick for you in Office 365.


I hope someone else has a better answer for you.


The workaround is to copy the cell to notepad or to a Word file and read it there, character by character.

This is such a pain!

1. In Excel, press alt+f (files menu and backstage view).
2. Press t (options).
3. Press a (advanced).
4. Tab about five times to 'allow editing directly in cells" and be sure it is *not checked.

good luck!

Re: Showing Number of Files and Folders in Windows 10

Rebecca Lineberger
 

Yes, this always works too. Smile. As long as I can remember what the
command to route JAWS to PC is! Insert-minus.
Not remembering, I'd switched to the JAWS cursor, pressed control-home to go
to the top of the page, and arrowed down. This works too, but for some
reason, not all the time. Then I have to remember to turn the PC cursor
back on again. I think I only have trouble with this because Window-Eyes
had the mouse available all the time without having to switch back and
forth. Old habits die hard. Smile.
But as usual, we're given many ways to do the same thing.

Hello Linda,

 

I am using Excel 2016 & Jaws 2019.  I would have thought Excel 365 would work the same as Excel 2016 but can’t say that for sure.  I have no problems using F2 to edit a cell.  To insert a column, I hit alt I then C.  This inserts a column to the left of the column I am in.  To insert a row above the row I am in I hit alt I then R.

 

Hope this will work for you.

Portable Version of JAWS, How To

Mike B. <mike9902@...>
 

Hi Teri,
 
I found this information buried in my notes and hope the steps still work:
 
The following briefly describes how to first download and install the thumb drive application, second, download the video intercept driver, and third,
start
 
the thumb drive application on another computer. 
 
Application Download and Install
 
1. Plug your USB thumb drive into your computer's USB port.
 
2. Select the appropriate thumb drive download link (32-bit or 64-bit) that appears at the end of this procedure.
 
3. When the dialog box opens, choose Save, and select a location on your thumb drive where you can easily find the downloaded executable file.
 
4. Run the downloaded executable file and extract the files to your thumb drive.
 
5. Repeat steps 2 through 4 if you are installing both products. 
 
Video Intercept Download
 
1. Select the appropriate video intercept link (32-bit or 64-bit) that appears at the end of this procedure.
 
2. When the dialog box opens, choose Save and save the file to the root of your thumb drive. (If needed, this file will let you install the video intercept
 
driver on any computer that does not already have it installed.) 
 
JAWS/MAGic 32-bit Video Intercept (32.8 MB - FTP download)
 
JAWS/MAGic 32-bit Video Intercept (32.8 MB - HTTP download) 
 
JAWS/MAGic 64-bit Video Intercept (34.4 MB - FTP download)
 
JAWS/MAGic 64-bit Video Intercept (34.4 MB - HTTP download)  
 
Start Thumb Drive Application
 
1. Unplug the USB thumb drive and plug it into a different computer. Windows automatically displays a dialog box asking what action you want to take next.
 
Select "Start JAWS" or "Start MAGic" and then press ENTER. 
 
If this dialog does not appear, press WINDOWS Key+R, type "X:\JAWS100" or "X:\MAGic110" (where X is the drive letter assigned to your thumb drive) and
 
press ENTER.  
 
Note: If the video intercept has not been installed on the computer, choose the Cancel button when the Autorun dialog box displays. Next, press WINDOWS
 
Key+R, type "X:\FSVideoIntercept.exe" where X is the drive letter assigned to your thumb drive), and press ENTER. This installs the necessary JAWS and
 
MAGic video components on the computer. You must have administrative privileges to install these files.
 
2. You can now use JAWS or MAGic just as if it were installed on the computer's hard disk drive. Any settings changes that you make are saved on the USB
 
thumb drive so that you can use them next time. When you are finished working on the computer, quit JAWS or MAGic and remove the drive from the USB slot. 
 
Take care, Mike.

Hello Mr.Ed, you forgot to say that you have to be in an open email body. This will not work when an email is highlighted and the alt key must be held down because if you mash it and release it you will be in the ribbons.

Hi Tom,

I am sure you probably are doing this but are you using the 1,2,3, etc. on the number row while holding down the alt key? It will not work with the number key pad. Just to make sure.

I made sure the screen was maximized, but Alt 1, 2, and 3 still say unavailable when an e-mail message is open.

I just tried the key combinations on your message, and on this reply, and alt 1, 2, and 3 don’t work.

 

I’ll check further, but it almost seems to vary with the message.

 

It’s very strange.

Hi Tom,

 

I’m using The current version of Windows 10, Outlook 2016 and the most recent version of JAWS.  These key combos still work for me in an open message that I’ve received.

They, of course and never have, don’t work in an open message that I am creating.

Hello, everyone.

 

I used to be able to read the various fields in an open Outlook 2016 e-mail message using the alt key, followed by the numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, etc..

 

This now no longer works.

 

Whenever I hit these key combinations, I get an “unavailable” message.

 

Does anyone know if something has changed to no longer make this possible, and is there a work-around?

 

I also find shif-tabbing through the various fields to be very unreliable.

 

I’m using Windows 10, Office 365, and the latest build of Jaws 2019 here.

 

Thank you!

 

Dr.  Tom Behler from Michigan

Hi Susie,
 
When the update comes out I always send a direct download link for the list members to download with the info on what's new in this update as well.  I might be a little tardy but, just like the postal service, I eventually get it here!  LOL

Hi John and All,
March 12th is this coming Tuesday. So, I guess that means that the update
