When did HP do that?  I had an HP pc and that wasn’t the case.  I did, however, use a regular keyboard pluged into the labpto, though.  There is no way I’d be holding the function key everytime I needed to close a document.

That can easily be change by going in to bios, choosing set-up, choosing action keys and changing it so the function keys behave as we need them to as screen reader users. You will require sighted assistance as there is no speech support in the bios, but I’ve talked many people who claim to be computer illiterate through the process, and it’s quite simple. I could not tolerate having to hold the FN key every time I needed to execute a command with function keys, it would drive me batty.

Hi,

 

You might also try the “FN” key plus the alt plus f4. I have to use the fn key on all of my function keys because, in their infinant wisdom, HP assigned all the function keys, when pressed by themselves, to other commands. HTH. Linda Yacks

Hello,

 

At work, I am using Windows and JAWS 2018 . Due to a special script, which is turning out not to be so special, I cannot use Alt, F4 to close many windows. Can anyone give me another manner in which to close these things?

 

I found it at one point but did not document it as I thought I would remember, however, age does some tricks on some people. I appreciate any help I can get so I can stop doing forced system swhen I have too many opened windows.

 

Thanks,

Most of the HP laptops I’ve seen in many years are set this way. I know dell does it as well, but with dell laptops you can toggle the function key setting by holding the FN key and pressing escape. Not sure if this works for HP.

It’s not only when closing a document. Say, for instance, you want to invoke the links list command, insert f7. You would have to hold the fn key, then press insert f7. Not too difficult if the good lord had had the insight to give us three hands, but such is not the case lol.

I havent’ found any quick toggle options for my HP Pavilion, so I think the BIOS adjustment is in my future.  At work, I am on HP laptops and the FN key is not required, so there may be a difference between business grade HP machines and home user versions.

Hi.


Ctrl+w or ctrl+f4 will usually close something, though my not end up fully closing applications ctrl+w and ctrl+f4 are closing individual windows of an application, if the application still runs with no documents open then it won't close. These do work for closing explorer windows and closing out web browsers though so that's a big help. I wish we knew more about what your script does and why and how it interferes with alt+f4, fn it's just the fn for function key normal functions thing. If that's the case you have an fn key, and holding that while you hit alt+f4 should work, and that gives enough knowledge about the situation to try and hunt a solution. If it's a lenovo there will be an accessible way to fix it, dell there may be also, hp will require adjustments in the bios. If it's an external keyboard like logitech k380 bluetooth the driver may have an option to change it logitech k380 does, for instance.

Re: Other Keys for Closing Documents and Outlook

Van Lant, Robin
 

Oh, and I will add that there are many times where the FN key isn’t required, but I can’t figure out the rhyme or reason.  For example, I can be in some situations where Shift F10 opens the context menu and other on the same laptop where it will require me to add the FN key to invoke the context menu.   What’s most challenging for me is that I often forget the FN key when I do a particular JAWS command and end up turning off my wireless connection,

Access Keys for ribbon tabs

There are two ways to navigate the tabs in the ribbon:

·         To go to the ribbon, press Alt, and then, to move between tabs, use the Right Arrow and Left Arrow keys.

·         To go directly to a specific tab on the ribbon, use one of the following access keys:

To do this

Press

To use Backstage view, open the File page.

Alt+F

To use themes, colors, and effects, such as page borders, open the Design tab.

·         To move between commands, press the Tab key or Shift+Tab.

·         To move in the group that’s currently selected, press the Down Arrow key.

·         To move between groups on a ribbon, press Ctrl+Right Arrow or Ctrl+Left Arrow.

Controls on the ribbon are activated in different ways, depending upon the type of control:

·         If the selected command is a split button (that is, a button that opens a menu of additional options), to activate it, press Alt+Down Arrow. Tab through the options. To select the current option, press Spacebar or Enter.

·         If the selected command is a list (such as the Font list), to open the list, press the Down Arrow key. Then, to move between items, use the Up Arrow or Down Arrow key.

·         If the selected command is a gallery, to select the command, press Spacebar or Enter. Then, tab through the items.

Tip: In galleries with more than one row of items, the Tab key moves from the beginning to the end of the current row and, when it reaches the end of the row, it moves to the beginning of the next one. Pressing the Right Arrow key at the end of the current row moves back to the beginning of the current row.

Use access keys when you can see the KeyTips

To use access keys:

1.       Press Alt.

2.       Press the letter shown in the square KeyTip that appears over the ribbon command that you want to use.

Depending on which letter you press, you may be shown additional KeyTips, which are small images of a letter next to a command button on the tab that you picked. For example, if you press Alt+F, the Office Backstage opens on the Info page which has a different set of KeyTips. If you then press Alt again, KeyTips for navigating on this page appear.

Howdy All,
 
Here's a list of keystrokes for Outlook 2013 & 2016:
 

Keyboard shortcuts for Microsoft Outlook 2013 and 2016


This reference article provides a comprehensive list of all keyboard shortcuts for Microsoft Outlook 2013 and 2016 (desktop version). Shortcuts are grouped by functionality; for example, you’ll find shortcuts for moving around in Outlook under “Navigation”. As you might guess, you’ll find some shortcuts listed more than once.

To find links to keyboard shortcuts for other Microsoft products, go to Office Accessibility Center.

 

Note:

·         Keys that should be pressed at the same time are joined with a plus sign (+). Keys that you should press in sequence are joined by a comma (,). Thus, the keyboard shortcut Alt+H, M+R means press Alt and H together to open the Home tab on the ribbon, and then press letters M and R together to open a new Meeting Request.

Ron, be sure to put yourself in the folders list with control-y. Arrow down

Hi to all.
I don't really want to go to the MS mail app.
I've tried it twice and had it removed twice.
I have WLM but it's starting to decay on me.
So, I've been practicing with the outlook mail program.
In my in box I have some mailboxes that I'd like to delete but I've tried
shift delete and no luck.
I've tried the app key and down arrowed looking for the delete key and no
luck.
I've even tried the ctrl key and delete and no luck.
Yes I was on the folder or AKA Mailbox I wanted to remove.
So any help and help with deleting mailboxes and or AKA folders would be
helpful.
Very Thankfully Yours,

Note: Add-ins and other programs may add new tabs to the ribbon and may provide access keys for those tabs.

Access Keys for ribbon tabs

There are two ways to navigate the tabs in the ribbon:

·         To go to the ribbon, press Alt, and then, to move between tabs, use the Right Arrow and Left Arrow keys.

·         To go directly to a specific tab on the ribbon, use one of the following access keys:

To do this

Press

To use Backstage view, open the File page.

·         To move between commands, press the Tab key or Shift+Tab.

·         To move in the group that’s currently selected, press the Down Arrow key.

·         To move between groups on a ribbon, press Ctrl+Right Arrow or Ctrl+Left Arrow.

Controls on the ribbon are activated in different ways, depending upon the type of control:

·         If the selected command is a gallery, to select the command, press Spacebar or Enter. Then, tab through the items.

Tip: In galleries with more than one row of items, the Tab key moves from the beginning to the end of the current row and, when it reaches the end of the row, it moves to the beginning of the next one.

2.       Press the letter shown in the square KeyTip that appears over the ribbon command that you want to use.

Depending on which letter you press, you may be shown additional KeyTips, which are small images of a letter next to a command button on the tab that you picked. For example, if you press Alt+F, the Office Backstage opens on the Info page which has a different set of KeyTips. If you then press Alt again, KeyTips for navigating on this page appear.

There should be some way, possibly in bios, which would require sighted assistance, to fix the function keys so that they always have the function of – function keys. You should investigate this to make your life easier.

Oh, and I will add that there are many times where the FN key isn’t required, but I can’t figure out the rhyme or reason.  For example, I can be in some situations where Shift F10 opens the context menu and other on the same laptop where it will require me to add the FN key to invoke the context menu.   What’s most challenging for me is that I often forget the FN key when I do a particular JAWS command and end up turning off my wireless connection,

It’s not only when closing a document. Say, for instance, you want to invoke the links list command, insert f7. You would have to hold the fn key, then press insert f7. Not too difficult if the good lord had had the insight to give us three hands, but such is not the case lol.

When did HP do that?  I had an HP pc and that wasn’t the case.  I did, however, use a regular keyboard pluged into the labpto, though.  There is no way I’d be holding the function key everytime I needed to close a document.

That can easily be change by going in to bios, choosing set-up, choosing action keys and changing it so the function keys behave as we need them to as screen reader users. You will require sighted assistance as there is no speech support in the bios, but I’ve talked many people who claim to be computer illiterate through the process, and it’s quite simple. I could not tolerate having to hold the FN key every time I needed to execute a command with function keys, it would drive me batty.

Hi,

 

You might also try the “FN” key plus the alt plus f4. I have to use the fn key on all of my function keys because, in their infinant wisdom, HP assigned all the function keys, when pressed by themselves, to other commands. HTH. Linda Yacks

Hello,

 

At work, I am using Windows and JAWS 2018 . Due to a special script, which is turning out not to be so special, I cannot use Alt, F4 to close many windows. Can anyone give me another manner in which to close these things?

 

I found it at one point but did not document it as I thought I would remember, however, age does some tricks on some people. I appreciate any help I can get so I can stop doing forced system swhen I have too many opened windows.

 

Thanks,

 

Michelle

Most of the HP laptops I’ve seen in many years are set this way. I know dell does it as well, but with dell laptops you can toggle the function key setting by holding the FN key and pressing escape. Not sure if this works for HP.

That can easily be change by going in to bios, choosing set-up, choosing action keys and changing it so the function keys behave as we need them to as screen reader users. You will require sighted assistance as there is no speech support in the bios, but I’ve talked many people who claim to be computer illiterate through the process, and it’s quite simple. I could not tolerate having to hold the FN key every time I needed to execute a command with function keys, it would drive me batty.

I found it at one point but did not document it as I thought I would remember, however, age does some tricks on some people. I appreciate any help I can get so I can stop doing forced system swhen I have too many opened windows.

External Hard Drive Formatting

JERRY MARTIN
 

Afternoon all.
 
I have an IOmega External hard drive, and I have a question regarding it.
 
I have been having a problem with some of my documents. I can, using Word 13, create a document, save it to my documents folder, then copy it to my external. As soon as I do, it gets converted to a read only file. I spoke with Microsoft accessibility, and they thought the problem was solved, but not so. I spoke with a computer expert, and I was told to transfer all of the files/folders to another device, format the external, then re-transfer all materials back to the external, and that should solve the problem.
 
So, here is my question. Is there anything I need to keep on there before I format it? I never formatted the device; I just started using it out of the box. I am using JAWS 2018 and Windows 10 on a Dell laptop. Thanks in advance.

Re: External Hard Drive Formatting

First off, back up all the data that you want to save from that drive 1st to another drive, secondly, you will lose all the data on the drive when you format, and thirdly I don't think formatting and fix the issue anyway, good luck.

Re: External Hard Drive Formatting

JM Casey <crystallogic@...>
 

When you say “read only”, do you mean the protected view in Word, or the file attributes themselves are set to read only?

 

You don’t need to keep anything on the drive. In fact when you format, everything will be deleted. Everything. You will be starting with a clean slate, as it were.

Hi Jerry,
 
I don't know if this might cause the problem you're having, but check both your operating system drive and your storage drive properties to see if they're formatted with the same file systems.  You want them to be using the NTFS file system.

Re: JAWS with Workday software for HR .

Van Lant, Robin
 

I am finding Workday challenging.   One of the challenges I was having yesterday while trying to edit my performance goals is these boxes that should be a combo box, in my opinion.  I think the way sighted users invoke them is to click on a little icon in the right edge of the edit box that opens a little window with the choices in it.  I cannot figure out how to open these with JAWS.  It’s not like I can start typing an option I know exists in the list and having it auto populate.  I am just trying to figure out if I am missing something before I submit feedback.  I work for a company with 18,000 employees, so maybe I can get a more direct feedback route on accessibility issues.

Yes, Unum also utilizes Work Day for their HR administration. Even though Work day claims to be accessible, it is not completely accessible. Even when issues are reported, issue resolution is slow at best.

 

Many functions are clumsy at best and I still have to get assistance from a sighted person for a number of the tasks that are required of me.  We have been using Work Day for a couple of years now.

 

Best of luck!

Re: External Hard Drive Formatting

NTFS is certainly ideal for best storage – but it shouldn’t make a difference.

 

It’s more likely to do with the permissions on the drive.

 

If the drive was indeed formatted on a different computer than the one being used to write to it now, this could well be a thing.

I am not sure. I have gone through all of the aspects for saving the documents, and none of them are set to read only. I can use the applications key, and there is an option to open the documents in read only. It is a real aggravation; because I can copy the file from the external to my documents folder on my lptop, edit it, and send it back. then upon opening the specific file, it will have the changes on it. Thanks for the reply.
