Hi.

 

Well, not 100% certain I understand the query, but unicode characters are defined by number codes. So you can input them into yoru documents by typing the number of the code, selecting it, and then hitting alt-x. The nubmers should be replaced by whatever character is desired … which could include a small image.

This doesn’t work in all contexts, only in Microsoft Office, I believe, but a lot of programmes will recognise unicode values.

Hello,

 

I would like to know how to employ these.

 

I use the image ones you can paste, but not sure what to do with the Unicode ones.

 

They look like numbers and not an image, at least this is the way Jaws reads them, and not understanding how a group of digits, when typed out, don’t look like a group of digits, instead of an image.

 

Thanks for educating me.

 

I also should learn when and when not to use them.

Focus Braille Display and OpenBook Question

Kathryn.Frederick@ood.ohio.gov
 

Hello,

 

I’m attempting to read files using OpenBook, JAWS and my Focus Braille display. JAWS speaks/reads the content as it should, but I see nothing on my Focus display. Any idea why the Focus is not displaying the content JAWS is reading?

 

Thanks,

 

Katie Frederick

Outlook notifications are blocking reading on Firefox

Jim Pursley
 

Running Win10 Pro, version 1809, latest JAWS and latest FF, which seems to update every few days lately.  I need Outlook notifications to inform me when an email arrives while previewing its content. When I'm on Firefox reading an internet article and a notification interrupts JAWS, nothing I can do short of rebooting JAWS can get me back to normal   The same issue just appeared on my personal Thunderbird, but I was able to tab around and get back to where I was before being interrupted.  Ugh.

Jerry,
Do shift + control + F
for Find
Press alt + R which will take you to the from field
You don't have to use the entire eMail address, just enough to find the one you want.
If I were looking for a message from you, I would just put jyand in the from field
If I had a lot of your messages saved, I'd put something in the message body to isolate that, like if you had sent a message on cassette tapes, I would write tape in the message.
The message body is alt + A
Alt + I will start the search, but usually you can just press enter in any field.

trapped in submenus

Don Raikes
 

Hi,

 

I am running jaws version 2019.1906.10.400 on windows 10 pro version 1809 and prior to today version 1803.

 

Whenever I access a menu that has a submenu, I am automatically forced down into the submenu and can’t get out. 

 

I assumed it was JAWS doing it because of the whole virtual ribbon mode, but it doesn’t matter whether I have virtual ribbon menu checked or not for the application.

 

When I am in the submenu, if I press left arrow, jaws announces the name of the menu item with the submenu, but doesn’t get me out of the submenu. Alt+left arrow has the same effect.

 

This happens in all kinds of applications except for thos with the actual virtual ribbon menus like word and excel.

 

For example, I set jaws to only show in the system tray, but when I use insert+j to access the jaws menus, I am stuck down in the tandem submenu and can’t move back up to get to the options menu.

 

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks,

Don

Re: Using unicode emojis?

Hey jerry.

 

It’s surprisingly difficult to find a *complete* list online. I think this is because there are over 100,000 characters, all told, and they may not all display correctly on all systems.

 

Try this, for starters:

https://www.vertex42.com/ExcelTips/unicode-symbols.html

 

and the wikipedia, which has many links and references:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Unicode_characters

 

 

An important thing to note is that unicode values are entered in hexidecimal numbers, so they can also include the letters a to f.

 

Still searching for the most complete list available online.

Hi.

 

Well, not 100% certain I understand the query, but unicode characters are defined by number codes. So you can input them into yoru documents by typing the number of the code, selecting it, and then hitting alt-x. The nubmers should be replaced by whatever character is desired … which could include a small image.

This doesn’t work in all contexts, only in Microsoft Office, I believe, but a lot of programmes will recognise unicode values.

Hello,

 

I would like to know how to employ these.

 

I use the image ones you can paste, but not sure what to do with the Unicode ones.

 

They look like numbers and not an image, at least this is the way Jaws reads them, and not understanding how a group of digits, when typed out, don’t look like a group of digits, instead of an image.

 

Thanks for educating me.

 

I also should learn when and when not to use them.
