Re: MSWord lines per page

Hello Gene

So, what do you use for document creation? I do not need a very feature full program but it must be able to tell when it goes to page two etc. when typing documents. I do miss Word Perfect very, very much.

I don't use Word but you likely have double space on.  Control 1, 1 on the main keyboard, tells Word to single space.  Control 2 tells Word to double space. 

 

If you write an essay about Mars, you are really going into space.  (grin)

Subject: [TechTalk] MSWord lines per page

 

Hello list
I am from the old school and I loved Word Perfect in the days of MSDos. My
problem is that I have to use MSWord now and for some reason I only get 26
lines of text per page. Even if I change the font to Regular Normal and the
size to 10. With WP I was used to 54 lines of text with a top and bottom
margin of 1. Can someone please explain how to use MSWord to get more text
on a page without making the font so small that it becomes difficult to
read.
Kind regards
Fanus




Re: MSWord lines per page

Fanus
 

Hello Ann
Well, I selected the text and then I pressed control-1 but nothing is
better. When I load MSWord I hear "print view edit". Is this the correct
view for creating documents?
Regards
Fanus

Hi all,

Famus are you doublespacing? If so then you will get only 26 lines per
page. Is your printer set for this?

I didn't write the name of the version correctly.  It is Word Starter edition.

Try this.  I have Word started edition.  But you may well find the same thing in your version of Word.  In the home ribbon, tab until you get to things dealing with fonts.  Keep tabbing and see if you get to a show all button.  If it is indicated as being pressed, press the space bar on it.  Even if it isn't pressed, press the space bar.  You can always toggle it to the other setting.  This will probably solve your problem.
 
This setting, when on, shows a lot for formatting codes in documents you don't usually see.  And I tested with an old version of NvDA.  It didn't see the code when I had show all on.  it just said space. Evidently, the current version, assuming that is what you are using, doesn't show these codes either.

it isn't a JAWS issue in the sense that JAWS is doing something improper.  I believe the short cut command is control f8.  You may want to wait to see if others verify this because if I'm wrong, you might take an unwanted action.  But this problem is discussed now and then.  It may be that NVDA doesn't read the character, but its there.

Re: Audible downloading book to pc

Fanus
 

Hello list

I changed the subject, so thanks to Gene for your response. I am confused because there is an audible manager pc app and an audible pc app. When running the Audible app I can get to the name of the book and I can play it but I can not get the place on my pc where the file is stored. There is an Audible folder in documents and one in Users / public but both folders are empty. In Audible manager nothing shows in the library. My main objective is to get Audible books onto the Victor Stream which I did register in the Audible Manager app. Can someone please solve my confusion and explain how to download an Audible book. I must admit that I subscribed to Audible two weeks ago so this is my first book so I do not know if one can not download the trial book, however I could download and read it on my iPad.

Regards

Fanus

I don't know if there is an audible list but there is no reason not to ask here.  The list is for discussing technology in general.  It isn't limited to computer and device technology. 
Braille equipment or how to do things in Braille, for example, can be discussed.  Braille is technology, reading and writing technology.  Cooking and cooking equipment can be discussed.  It would be getting offtopic if, for example, people started exchanging recipies, but problems with cooking, such as how you do something, or discussing cooking equipment, ovens, microwaves, etc. is on topic.

Hi Fanus,
 
If you're running Jaws try the following:
1. While in Word press, Insert + 6, on the the number row to open the Settings Center.
2. Down arrow to, Web / HTML / PDFs, and right arrow to open.
3. Down arrow to, Navigation, and right arrow to open.
4. In here you'll find a setting for lines per page, but I've never played with this setting so I hope this does what you want.
Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.

Hi all:

To fix the problem, go to the Home ribbon and as you tab across the ribbon you should find the setting for show markers; its probably going to be set on so activate it and it should close the problem.

I’m sorry I can’t be more specific as I’m currently using my Mac and away from a windows PC. If you can’t find it, give me a couple hours to check it.

Thanks to those of you who responded to my previous query about JAWS. I’ve been trying the demo but discovered an annoyance that only happens in Word. When I hit the spacebar in a document, JAWS creates a space marker instead of showing an actual space. These markers show up on my braille display and are read by speech. Is there a setting I can tweak to get rid of them? Thank you in advance for any help.

Re: Olympus digital recorders?

Joe Giovanelli
 

Good Evening,

One can set the time and date on the DM-720. I was unable to set either AM or PM.

This is a great voice recorder but if the right menu choices are made, it can be one of the finest sound recorders. It can record the lowest organ tones and the high frequencies associated with the various gadgets used by percussionists.

Hi,

Most in the dm series have voice feedback as does the ls-p4 one model which allows you to even set the time with voice feedback if you are concerned about such. I hope that helps.
