Re: Working with Google Sheets?

Hey.

Huh, that's interesting. I did find something about accessibility in the keyboard shortcuts. I'm going to have to take a lot more time to play with this.

Under settings, there used to be an accessibility item. also, you had to turn on Braille in settings, whether or not you had a Braille display. this may not still be the case, but it made a biiiiig difference a couple of years ago.

Hello,
I believe you need to turn off the JAWS virtual cursor to work with the
sheet. You do this by using the command JAWS key plus z. Once you turn
off the cursor you will need to use the tab key to move around to find
the sheet.

Thanks, Ann. FS/VFO's explanation for this setting is that it affects only "say all" reading, but I turned it off anyway and so far "quick keys" is off each time I return to Word. It looks like you've solved it.

GNUCash might work.  See:  https://gnucash.org/features.phtml

It's gross overkill in terms of features, and I have not played with it as far as accessibility goes, but it is open source and a check register is one of its major functions.

Others you might want to look at include KMyMoney, Microsoft's own Money Plus Sunset Deluxe
 which is free (though it may not work on Windows 10, you'd have to try it, last release was in 2010), or even possibly hledger (though I'd say that one's least likely).

Word 2016 and "paste recovery table"

Adrian Spratt
 

When working in Word 2016, I use paste special (alt-control-v) instead of the regular control-v paste. Often after I've pasted the text, my typing is interrupted by a message that begins, "paste recovery table..." It's unpredictable and so all the more distracting.
This annoyance began for me with Windows 7 and continues with Windows 10.
Any ideas for how to get rid of it?

Re: JAWS and Chrome stop working together after a while

Adrian Spratt
 

Thanks for the msinfo32 command. However, I don't seem to be getting JAWS to read all the details. For example, within the hardware section there's a line saying simply "Memory." I can't get any elaboration, such as by pressing F6, enter or right-arrow.
For the record, I have 16 gigs of RAM, so memory doesn’t explain my Chrome problem.

On my new Windows 10 machine, JAWS completely stops reading anything in Chrome. Each time I reboot, they work fine together, but not for more than, say, an hour. Not only won't JAWS read content, but it also can't read menus, etc. When this happens, I select the webpage's address, and even though JAWS can't read it, I can paste the copy into IE and open the page there. Since Chrome is now my default, this is a serious limitation.

This machine is solid state. I'm confident I have enough RAM, but I haven't yet figured out where I can get system information and so can't report the exact number. Windows key+pause no longer does the trick, nor does opening properties on the C drive.

Any ideas?
