Hi,
Steve is selling it for £60 (£72 including tax). This equates to $78.21, or $93.84.

Hello,


I have such a small Need for Microsoft Word, that I don't have it
installed on any of my Systems. Instead I use Jarte, and for my needs,
it works great. It is Small, Quick, Simple, and works well with either
of my Screen Readers.


However, there are times when I need to send a file to someone using a
Microsoft Format, either MS Word 2013 or newer.


For the price of $36 down to $24 for Office Pro 2016, this deal is hard
to resist.


Guess my question is this, How Accessible is Office 2016?


I use the Spell Checker, and need to change Fonts and Font Sizes. Need
to do Underlining and some Outlining.


I also need to read large Documents of more than 100 pages.


I assume that Jaws 2019, and the latest NVDA Screen Readers will read
enough in Word 2016 to do those items I listed above.


But, I thought I would ask here first, since these days, very little
should be Assumed.


Oh, and if it matters, I am running everything on a Win 10 Pro System,
with an I7 Chip and loads of Memory.


Isn't there a Newer version of MS Word? 2018, 19 or 20?


But, for $36 to $24, This deal is a temptation.


I would Love to hear from users of Office 2016 and hear how well it
works with Screen Readers.


Thanks for any reply,

Re: Low-Cost Braille Displays

No I have not been able to make the braille me work with jaws yet. I have written to www.atguys.com from who I bought my braille me and suggested it. And I also suggested it on the braille me email list. I am just waiting for a firmware update that will allow the braille me to work with jaws and also provide some other needed fixes. Other than that and the occasional dot not popping up requiring a light shake or a light tap, I really really love the braille me display that I own. I also like my two orbit reader displays.

Hi Holly,
 
From my understanding, according to MWB tech support, MWB stays running in the background if you press, Insert + F10, press enter on the MWB message here and then Alt + F4.  It supposedly only will stop MWB from showing the system tray but doesn't stop the program from running in the background.  I don't have this latest MWB installed, so I can't say this is true for version 4 like it was in version 3 latest.

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.

Re: NLS cartrage

FAT32, but if this is truly a NLS cartridge flash drive, you will not at all need to format it simply due to the fact that it's smaller than anything larger than 32GB which will be already formatted as FAT32.

If you are wanting to format this drive just to wipe it clean then as already mentioned, FAT32.

I found that after you run a scan, with the free version, you can go into the system tray, enter on Malware Bites and arrow down to the ‘quit Malware Bites’ option and enter on it.  This will remove it from the system tray temporarily and the announcement will not come up again until you run another scan.

 

You will have to go through these steps after every time you run a scan manually.

 

I only run a scan about once a week, so not a big deal to go into the system tray and do this.

 

I don’t think it would work with the paid version, as it is always running with real time protection.

Heather:

 

I have the free version also, and kept getting this message all the time too.  Very annoying.

 

I found that after you run a scan, with the free version, you can go into the system tray, enter on Malware Bites and arrow down to the ‘quit Malware Bites’ option and enter on it.  This will remove it from the system tray temporarily and the announcement will not come up again until you run another scan.

 

You will have to go through these steps after every time you run a scan manually.

 

I only run a scan about once a week, so not a big deal to go into the system tray and do this.

 

I don’t think it would work with the paid version, as it is always running with real time protection.

Office 2016 works fine with NVDA at least (and in fairness, I'd assume it should work fine with Jaws also).  If you do get tempted to go further into using advanced features of Word, we have a training module on Microsoft Word with NVDA:  https://www.nvaccess.org/product/microsoft-word-training-for-nvda-ebook/  It's only $30 Australian, which still should just come in under your $24 cost of Office itself :)

 

There is a newer version of Office, Office 2019, which like Office 2016, is a standalone, one-off purchase.  Otherwise the newest version of Office which is constantly updated, is Office 365, which is a yearly or monthly subscription.

 

Kind regards

 

Quentin.

Hello,


I have such a small Need for Microsoft Word, that I don't have it
installed on any of my Systems.  Instead I use Jarte, and for my needs,
it works great.  It is Small, Quick, Simple, and works well with either
of my Screen Readers.


However, there are times when I need to send a file to someone using a
Microsoft Format, either MS Word 2013 or newer.


For the price of $36 down to $24 for Office Pro 2016, this deal is hard
to resist.


Guess my question is this, How Accessible is Office 2016?


I use the Spell Checker, and need to change Fonts and Font Sizes.  Need
to do Underlining and some Outlining.


I also need to read large Documents of more than 100 pages.


I assume that Jaws 2019, and the latest NVDA Screen Readers will read
enough in Word 2016 to do those items I listed above.


But, I thought I would ask here first, since these days, very little
should be Assumed.


Oh, and if it matters, I am running everything on a Win 10 Pro System,
with an I7 Chip and loads of Memory.


Isn't there a Newer version of MS Word?  2018, 19 or 20?


But, for $36 to $24, This deal is a temptation.


I would Love to hear from users of Office 2016 and hear how well it
works with Screen Readers.


Thanks for any reply,


Grumpy Dave

Do you know of a key stroke to get rid of this? I have jaws and nvda, mainly a jaws user. I only have the free version as my copy  expired. Thanks, Heather

I had been back & forth with MWb for a long time about this window that appears.  The trouble was that only people using screen reading programs were seeing / hearing this message and sighted people didn't even know it was there.  I had a screen share with a MWB higher level person to show them / let them hear what happens and so they could actually hear what's being reported by screen reading programs.  Well this was back around version, 3.4, or so.  Anyways they did eliminate this screen in Windows 7, but never could eliminate it in Windows 10.  I quit running MWB many months ago because everytime they did an update they would screw up all the prior improvements for blind users.  I got so tired of all the hassle and having to go through all the chains of command again & again before anyone would take the problems the blind users are having Now with, MWB version, 4..., is out and when I tried it I could only take about 30 minutes of the user interface before I totally removed that major pain in the A** completely!  I could have used the Jaws touch cursor and other navigation keystrokes, but I then could by no means tell people the program is accessible for the screen reader users that don't know these keystrokes.


Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.

I'm not sure but you may have to let it be there.

I'm running the paid program so it sounds like there's nothing I can do. Oh well I'm used to it now, I was just wondering if there was a way to get rid of it.

Are you using the free or paid version?  I don't know if you can or should get rid of it if you are using the paid version, using real time protection.  If you are using the free version, set it not to run at bootup, then exit the program.  I haven't used the program for quite some time and I haven't worked with settings for even longer but someone can tell you how.  You don't have real time protection with the free program so it doesn't matter if it runs when you aren't doing a scan.

Subject: [TechTalk] malware bytes tray application

 

Hi all,

Whenever windows 10 comes up after I either reboot or when I initially
boot-up in the morning I have a window on my taskbar that says malware
bytes tray application. Is there a way to get rid of that? I've had the
paid version of malware bytes for a long time but this has only started
happening with the later versions.

Thanks.

Troy
