Re: problems with office 365 and help please

Adrien Collins <adriencollins22160@...>
 

Hi Michael

 

No outlook is crashing when I use nvda but not jaws, I tried it several times and the result is the same. Only with nvda. Outlook runs no problems running jaws. I haven’t as yet installed the latest nvda. The problem may fix itself. I even tried with windows restarted several times and opening and closing outlook. It seems to be nvda causing a problem. Not sure why this is happening. I was running outlook with jaws last night but the minute I loaded nvda outlook crashed.    

 

Regards

Adrien

Hi Adrian,

 

Does Outlook truly crash, or does your screen reader just stop talking? See, this is something I didn’t know until I did a remote session with Microsoft Accessibility Support and they told me that the program was still running and iI was still scrolling around in it when  using the arrow keys. Lenovo is probably not going to be  any assistance to you, but if Microsoft and Freedom Scientific cannot figure out your problem, you are probably looking at the same situation that I was. A clean reinstall of Windows containing the Creator’s update will most likely be required to repair the problem. I have not experienced any issues since I did this and my computer is running better all the way around. Should it come to this, and you need any assistance, do not hesitate to call on me. I found that when it came to the clean Windows install, Microsoft was unwilling to assist with that.

Hi Michael

 

Ok this is strange. I have recently started using jaws 18 home edition, not too much but have had it for six weeks. The problem we have both experienced with our Lenovo pc’s doesn’t seem to occur using jaws but as soon as I load nvda again, outlook starts to crash. I have no idea why this is happening. I have managed to open many pst files with jaws but not with nvda. It is a recent issue since I up-dated windows. I wonder if it had anything to do with your problems too? I am using windows 10 pro, 64 bit pc’s. I haven’t got jaws on my laptop but am keen to get it installed and test it. Curious.

Adrien

Hi Adrian,

 

Sounds like you are trying the right things. I had tried creating a new profile in outlook as well, but it didn’t help with the issue. I had pretty much exhausted my options before I resolved to the clean install, but it did the job for me. Good luck with the issue, and if I can be of any further assistance, please let me know.

Hi Michael

 

Yes thanks for this, as it is only outlook at present where I am experiencing issues, I am going to recreate my outlook profile first, if this doesn’t do it, I will get the system wiped but will need help with it. I have only just got my pc, it is only 3 months old and the laptop is having similar issues so I’d have to do both of them. I need to make a windows installation disk first though.

Hello Adrian,

 

I as well have 2 different Lenovo computers a desktop and a laptop. On both machines, after updating to the Windows 10 Creator’s Update, I began experiencing strange behavior in Outlook 2016 (Office 365) and in Excel as well. The weirdness in Outlook was sporadic and not uniform in nature, but Jaws would stop reading, as would Narrator when I tried it. In Excell, I would only lose the speech. Upon contacting the Microsoft Accessiblity Support group, they said that I was actually still navigating around on the work sheet, but Jaws simply was not reading the information. Hence I started a support case with Freedom Scientific. They made some adjustments within Jaws, but the problem persisted. I then called Lenovo, and they as well checked insome of the hardware within the machine to no avail. So, back to Microsoft as I was beginning to suspect an issue with the Windows 10 Creator’s Update, and since I could no longer easily roll back to the Anniversary update, I asked them to assist me in performing a clean Windows install. They would not help me and I suddenly lost my phone connection with them on 2 or 3 occasions. I then did connect with a Microsoft technician in Washington instead of the Phillipines, and I started to get somewhere. Upon, again, going through a thorogh scan of my software and hardware, they said that there were no obvious reasons as to why I was experiencing the problems, but that there    could still be some sort of problem with the Creator’s Update and Lenovo computers. I do know that when I was first prompted to update my PC, Lenovo had not pushed out the proper drivers to make my PC compatible with the Creator’s Update, so I wiped my hard drive out completely and performed a clean install of the Windows 10 which included the Creator’s Update. The machine has ran perfectly ever since. No issues with Outlook or Excel. I have been a Lenovo customer for several years now, but I do believe my next computer will be of a different brand. They typically perform well, and Lenovo’s technical support used to be among the best, but it has fallen down as of late.  Try the clean install, I know it can be a pain, but I believe it is the key to your problem.

Hi

 

I seem to have picked up a problem on both my laptop and new desktop with windows 10 pro and office 365 or to be exact outlook. I have just up-dated both pc’s to the latest windows up-dates, whether it is coincidence or not but since then when I open outlook it works ok with my default pst file but when I try and go to another folder in another pst file, i.e. my contacts list in another pst file called my pst file 1, Microsoft outlook just closes, I get a snatch of a message default ime, not quite sure what the whole message is but it seems to happen with all of my pst files, I have about 8 different ones. I managed to get my contacts folder to stay open once but no more. I have scanned and repaired all pst files, I have even tried removing and reinstalling office but it is no use. I am assuming this is a bug in windows. I have tried getting support from Microsoft but the app they use is not accessible with nvda. I am using both windows 10 pro pc’s, both 64 bit machines and both lenovos. Any ideas please?

Adrien

I never realized that regular F10 did the same as Alt, but now, I see that it does, and Shift F10 is for Context.

f10 opens the regular menus in a program. If you try it, you will hear file, just as you do when you press alt. Shift f10 does the same thing as the application key most of the time, but not all the time.

There are things it is not possible to do using a keyboard and using keyboard commands such as finding a blank space on the desktop and right clicking it to bring up that context menu. You can do so by having nothing selected and using the context menu key. but that isn't a limitation of the context menu key. It is a limitation on how you can move using the keyboard. I'm not talking about using the screen-reader virtual mouse. I'm saying that using keyboard movement commands that are provided by Microsoft and that don't involve the screen-reader virtual mouse, you can't move to certain places such as to blank spaces between icons on the desktop. But that isn't a limitation of the context menu command. That is a limitation of how you can move using standard keyboard movement commands.

I would consider it very unlikely that a command, such as the context menu command, would be designed to do the same thing as a mouse right click most of the time and not perform that action here and there. it sounds like really bad design and introducing an unjustifiable level of complexity into the programming involving that command.

What are some examples? That doesn't sound logical because most people use a mouse and right click. Why would they get different choices than a keyboard user who uses the context menu? The context menu key is the same action as right clicking with a mouse. I'll be curious to see what examples you provide. My guess is that the differences will be the result of differences in moving from the keyboard and moving with the mouse but I'll discuss that more later.

Sound Muting After Startup

Mike B. <mb69mach1@...>
 

Hi All,
 
Running Windows 7 Pro & Jaws with Realtek & Sound Blaster z soundcards.  I run Jaws through the Realtek soundcard & system sounds through the Sound Blaster Z soundcard.  What's happening is weird, but only about 50% of the time.  When I start this Dell computer in the morning I hear both the windows startup music & Jaws startup talking sounds, but then they both go mute for about 45 seconds, & then the sound for both comes back.  This only seems to happen in the morning after not running overnight, but not after rebooting during the day.  Can anyone shed any light on what might be happening, or what to check?  All input will be greatly appreciated.  Thanks much.
Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!

Re: a BRF file question

I won't waste people's time by bashing UEB, but I will say only that UEB was not designed to assist the reader; it was designed for the benefit of those writing braille translation programs.  I personally despise all of those two cell punctuation marks.  It reminds me of New York point turned sideways. Incidentally, I am not old enough to remember New York Point, but I did see samples of it many years ago.

Re: Converting Word document to PDF or JPG

Gene
 

Most of the time, you can look around dialogs and change things and the changes won't take effect unless you press the ok or apply button.  When looking around a dialog, you should always use cancel if you don't intend to make any changes.  But there are rare dialogs where changes do take immediate effect. The volume control dialog in Windows is an example.  In recent versions of Windows, that may not be true if you are in parts of the sounds dialog.  but if you are in the play adjustment dialog, one way to get to it is to open the run dialog and type sndvol and press enter, changes still take immediate effect.
 
The options dialog in Firefox is one where changes take immediate effect.  the Winamp preferences dialog is one where changes take immediate effect.
 
Such dialogs are rare but they do exist.  Looking through dialogs is a good way to learn more about programs.  But certain safeguards should be followed.  As I said earlier, you should always use cancel to close dialogs after you look around if you don't intend to make changes.  That will keep you from accidentally making changes.  Even if you are sure you have just tabbed around and changed nothing, people make mistakes and you may have changed something without realizing it. 
 
The other precaution is to tab around a dialog and make sure there is an ok button and a cancel button before changing things to look at options in different parts of the dialog.  If there is no ok or cancel button, that's a strong hint that changes will take effect immediately.  If you want to look around in such dialogs, remember what the original setting was so you can set the field back to it. 
 
I want to emphasize that looking through menus and dialogs are important and very useful activities in learning about programs.  But I also want people to know that there are rare times in dialogs where you need to be careful when you change things in the ways I've discussed.  That isn't intended to dissuade people from looking around.  It is intended to avoid unwanted consequences and the better you are at doing that, the more confidence you will build up over time as you explore.

Hi all,

When you're in the document, press f12,.  Once you see the filename
field tab once to the files-of-type control and arrow down to .pdf
don't think it has .jpg in that list.  PDF should be just fine.

Then proceed to the 'save' button and hit the spacebar.

The files-of-type is one of the controls in the save-as dialog which
has been the same in Windows since ever, and should be one of the first
things which is taught to computer users.  The fact that you are asking
this question indicates that whomever trained you, isn't worth his or her salt!

Hint, hint, you cannot damage anything in Windows by using its dialogs
so long as you do not press the 'ok' or 'save' button.  This is why I
strongly recommend exploration as a learning tool.   Explore all you
like, just don't confirm anything in a dialog unless you're sure that
the changes you've made are what you want.

Re: Other side of my ambivalence

Hi all,

Gene, I agree with what you say, in fact, if I were training someone to use ribbons I would turn off Virtual ribbons till I was sure that the student could use Ribbons in their natural format.

I happen to like to use the Virtual Ribbons when I use Jaws for editing because they are slightly faster than the "normal" way of doing things, but I've made that choice for myself, being fully cognizant of both how to use ribbons in their natural format, and how to use the Virtual Ribbons of Jaws. It's a conscious choice. <smiling> Trainees shouldn't get the Virtual Ribbons till they have proved that they can navigate "regular" ribbons first.

Walter, look for a device called cd stomper.  Avery makes labels for them.  I have used this thing for years successfully.  The sheets are square, so they fit nicely in a braille writer.  After creating the braille label, you then remove the round label from the square sheet.  There is a slight perforation which allows you to know where to remove the label from the sheet. The trick is to memorize or create a cheat sheet which tells you just where to begin each braille line and what spaces on which you cannot braille because of the hole in the center of the label.

My ignorance on this topic is profound and I'm not certain if it is possible

a few CDs I had and although she is sighted she found it tricky aligning the
sheets with the round self-adhesive CD labels in the printer, or should I
say aligning the printer software before printing the labels.
 
 
 
So!  I have a number of questions.  Firstly I don't own a printer and if I
were to embark on this project which printer would be best for this purpose;
laser or inkjet?  Secondly how do you go about configuring the printer to
print the images on to the round label (there is normally 2 round labels to

this task and is the software accessible (I use Jaws).
 
 
 
Another thought just occurred to me and that is whilst there are two round
labels to a sheet can you print a different image onto each label or must
the same image be printed on to both?
 
 
 
As I said, I've never done this before and I don't even own a printer  so I

f10 opens the regular menus in a program.  If you try it, you will hear file, just as you do when you press alt.  Shift f10 does the same thing as the application key most of the time, but not all the time.

Yes, that is exactly what I experienced. I believe that the clean install is the only way that this problem can be fixed. There is apparently somediscourse in performing these updates and installing one over the other. Some people do not experience this, but I keep hhhhearing of more and more that do.

Hi Pablo,

 

What are some of the problems that you are having? It sounds like something that I just experienced as I was having troubles with some of the Office applications. I worked with Microsoft and Freedom Scientific on the issue but got nowhere. I then decided to reset the computer and got the same message that you are receiving. I ended up doing a clean install of Windows 10 to fix the problem, and it worked. I have not been having any trouble with this computer since.

I believe that the Media Creation Tool just makes the process easier to either update your computer or create the installation media. By downloading the latest version of the Tool, you are ensuring that you get the latest updated version of Windows.

Re: Printing CD labels

Gene
 

I reread the message and that is correct, the labels would be placed on the cds.  But I don't think CD Stomper would do what is wanted.  From Don's description, it appears to be for creating the right size labels that you can do things with, but that still doesn't put the images on the label.

Walter, look for a device called cd stomper.  Avery makes labels for them.  I have used this thing for years successfully.  The sheets are square, so they fit nicely in a braille writer.  After creating the braille label, you then remove the round label from the square sheet.  There is a slight perforation which allows you to know where to remove the label from the sheet. The trick is to memorize or create a cheat sheet which tells you just where to begin each braille line and what spaces on which you cannot braille because of the hole in the center of the label.

Hi Pablo,

 

Yes, it will remove everything from your computer, and this is what you want. Be sure to Backup anything that you wish to keep.

 

No, it will not cost anything, your product key for Windows is stored in a chip on the motherboard, and the new installation will re-activate itself. You probably will see a prompt to enter a product key, but just skip past this.

  • It is a business computer.
  • It is connected to a domain, I know how to reconnect the computer to the domain .
  • I have admin permitions on this computer, so I am able to install or uninstall what ever I want.
  • This computer came with windows 8  home edition, and later was updated to windows Professional.
  • Later I updated this computer to windows 10 professional, and later it updated automaticly to windows 10 creator.

Ok, considering all these points, I have the following questions.

  • The Media that I created in a USB thumb drive is for windows 10, however if I do a hard installation cleaning everything up, I will have again windows 10 professional. Do I need to pay something for this licenses? I don’t think so, because we already paid for all of them, but I need to be sure.
  • This process will remove the hole programs, and files from my computer, correct?

Windows 10 should be able to perform a reset without using the manufacturer's recovery partition so you should look through the "Reset" options again.  Of course, a standard reset is effectively a clean installation which will not reinstall manufacturer supplied utilities and drivers.  Although Windows is usually pretty good about finding at least basic drivers for most devices, but in either case you should be able to download all drivers for your particular model from the manufacturer's website.
