How to Stop the Alt-Tab Key From Reading Row and Column Information When Switching From One Window To Another

David Goldfield
 

Using Windows 10 version 2004.

I recently had to create a new user profile to correct an issue I was having. I have everything set up according to my preferences, except for one minor issue that I can't seem to resolve.

When I press the alt key and continuously tap the tab key to cycle from one open window to another I hear row and column information being spoken along with the title, as in, "JAWS row 1, column 1." I thought that changing the theme to a classic theme used to correct this but I can't find such an option in Windows 10.

I realize that I so far haven't specified screen reader and screen reader version info as this is not a screen reader issue. However, I'm using NVDA 2020.3 beta 1 as well as the August build of JAWS 2020.

I found this on the web, haven't tried it yet.'
  1. Click the Start button.
  2. Type Cortana in the Search field.
  3. Click Cortana & Search settings.
  4. Click the switch beneath Cortana can give you suggestions, reminders, alerts, and more at the top of the menu so that it turns off.
  5. Click the switch beneath Search online and include web results so that it turns off.

The last windows update seems to have dumped Bing into the windows key search. Is there a way to kill it? Forever Grateful to anyone who can slay the dragon 😉

Re: Moving between Worksheets within a Workbook in Excel

 

Sieghard,

           There's absolutely nothing wrong with precision and correct usage of the terms Microsoft uses.  I originally (believe it or not) had retitled with Worksheets but then changed it.  Now it's changed again to be as crystal clear as possible.

Re: Moving between Worksheets within a Workbook in Excel

 

That simply means to use the page up and page down key on your 6-pack of keys in between the numeric keys and the main part of the keyboard. Of course only full-size keyboards have this, this would be above the inverted T cursor keys and there would be 2 rows of 3 keys:

 

Top Left = Insert

Bottom Left = Delete

Middle top = Home

Middle bottom = End

Top right = Page up

Bottom right = Page down

 

I hope I didn't mix up the home/end and page up/down keys with respect to what is in the middle and on the right side, but you can just try it if you have these keys.

For me using Jaws Control + Page Up and Page Down using the numeric pad works.

Re: Moving between Worksheets within a Workbook in Excel

 

Control + Page Up and Control + Page Down does not move between work books, it moves between work sheets inside of a workbook.

Sorry if I'm picky here, but a work book is basically an Excel file and it can contain many sheets or work sheets.

As Alan pointed out, if you are on the very first work sheet you can use Control + Page Down to move to the next one and press that shortcut again to move to the one after that etc. Control + Page Up goes back to the previous work sheet.

If you have a lot you can also use Shift + Control + S which I believe is a Jaws commend and all your worksheets are shown in a list view and you can use the arrows or home and end to move in that list or also first leeter navigation.

You can also press F6 from any of the sheets and this moves you to the title of that work sheet which is what a sighted user sees across the bottom of the page. You can then move left or right with the arrows to different sheets or you can press Shift + F10 or the application key if you have one to bring up a menu which has options to rename the work sheet, delete it, move it, insert a new one etc.

If you want to go back into your work sheet after you move to its tab or title with F6 just press enter or tab.

George made a good suggestion, however if I’m in excel and have many workbooks, Ctrl page up or ctrl page down goes forward or backward one work book at a time.

So, you need to do a control shift s  this brings up a dialog box with a list of sheets in hyour excel workbook.

 

Then you can arrow to the sheet you wish to go to and hit enter

Microsoft Office Accessibility Discussion Group - Newly Formed and Over 225 Members

 

We get an awful lot of questions on this group about Microsoft Office, and while Office runs under Windows 10 it's really not Windows 10.  On August 27th, David Goldfield started a new group, Microsoft Office Accessibility Discussion Group, on Groups.io and they're already very active.  Below are the email addresses for that group.

Subscribe: office-accessibility+subscribe@groups.io 
Help: office-accessibility+help@groups.io

Discussion of Office and accessibility is really much more appropriate in that group, since Office is an application program.

Re: Print Screen Key From Bootcamp

Daniel MacDonald
 

hello

being a Mac user having Windows under bootcamp for quite some time, I
can tell you there is no way to get print screen and do what you
intend. the closest thing is there are lots of ways to perform screen
shots but as far as doing what you want that's impossible. Bootcamp,
well, with the new silicone chip, my prediction is they will get rid
of it in the future. back when the mac first became accessible in the
new OS around 2001, Apple transitioned to intel chipsets. now, they're
doing it again, and I suspect Bootcamp will not be supported.
