Caliber is not screen reader friendly  at least the last time I tried it, it wasn’t.

If you want to convert them, calibre

For a free reading option, Balabolka

Re: windows 7 question for a friend

    No.  He wants to make it not show as a window when alt tabbing, not for it to go away entirely.  And you can do that, because mine is set up so that it doesn’t show.  At one point, I had it showing.  I don’t know how you change it so that it does, or doesn’t, since I didn’t do either one myself.  Pam.

the desktop is part of the OS. you cannot make it go away. in windows10 at least if you hit windows d for desktop then tab around you may find a show desktop button maybe if your friend has that if he presses it the desktop will go out of the alt tab cycle?

It can, but not by default. And as far as I know, the official developers do not promote or support such add-ons.

If my first suggestion doesn't solve the problem, before you move away from
the document, write something distinctive where you leave off so you can use
the find command to find it again. If you don't want to take a chance of
accidentally saving the altered document and not having the original, back
up the original and use a copy as I have suggested.

I'm running jaws 17, word 2010, and win10.

I'm trying to read a document a rather long one and having some odd

stopping, making a note in another file, then coming back to the long

Any ideas?

Re: windows 7 question for a friend

Hi Michael,
 
Taking the Desktop out of the loop when using Alt + Tab.
 
You want to change your desktop theme to Windows Classic.  Try the following:
1. While on the desktop make sure nothing is selected.  Press control + spacebar until you hear not selected.  You can also press the F5 key.
2. Open your context menu, up arrow to personalize, & press enter.
3. Press down arrow until you get to an item called Windows7 Basic.  Right arrow to Windows Classic. Hit the enter key to make the
desired change.
4. Wait a few seconds or until you hear an audio sound effect confirming the completion of this process. I would wait another 2
minutes or so as your computer is making lots of changes and you want to allow lots of time for the process to complete.
HTH
Take care.
Mike

Re: windows 7 question for a friend

Gene
 

The show desktop button doesn't have anything to do with whether the desktop is shown in tab order.  It's supposed to do the same thing as windows D or Windows m.  It moves you to the desktop and minimizes all opened applications according to what I've read.  But I seem to recall pressing the button at some time or another and it didn't do it.  Again, this is my hazy recollection from trying it once or twice a long time ago and may not be correct. 
At any rate, it won't do what is wanted.  You have to use the classic desktop theme to eliminate it from tab order.  I don't know if using it limits access to anything in ways you might not want to lose but classic theme is the only solution I've ever seen proposed for this problem.
 
I haven't played around with desktop themes for years so I'll let someone else describe the procedure.
