Re: Turning Off Office Clipboard

I don't know but usually such symbols have words associated with them in menus or ribbons. You often see instructions to click the gear icon in menus and that is the icon for what our screen-reader says is tools, that is the tools menu. I think sighted people see the worrd tools so I don't know why the description of the gear icon is preferred. Others may be able to explain such matters. So in this case, I don't know what you will find but you will probably find something that has words that most likely match what you are trying to do. Why that icon is used is something I don't know. Maybe someone will. Screen-readers often say question mark at a help menu but that is clearly not what is meant here. Perhaps it implies a question like what do you want to do.

Yes, I know how to access the menues, but I'm only asking about the use of the, ↘ symbol. I've never read this in a step before and I wonder what they mean by this symbol. I understand it does contain the word, arrow, in there, but what's this, southeast, lingo supposed to mean? LOL

I don't know if this applies to your version of Word. In Word Starter 2010, in the clipboard group, I have a button that says something like show clipboard task pane. If I press the space bar on that button, I am placed on the options button. I press the space bar and a menu opens up. It doesn't have a disable option but it does have settings that affect how you make it come up and whether it is displayed. If I no longer want to have the item displayed, I once again find the button in the ribbon and even though it still says show, I press the space bar again and the item is no longer shown.

Hi All,

My question has to do with step #3 in the steps below where it says to, Click the ↘ symbol. How do you determine what a ↘ symbol is using a screenreading program? I know how to access the menues, but this is the first time I've ever read steps whether for sighted or blind that used this kind of lingo! What are we supposed to do, turn on our braille compass app? LOL LOL
