[macvoiceover] Re: Word Processing with SL

Hi Mary Anne & all,

I'm afraid I must agree with you on the word processing issues. I was working on some minutes for a meeting last week, and needed to know things like what page I was on, whether or not text was bold, underlined or italic, if text was formatted as a heading 1, 2, or 3 etc. and there was no way for me to get this info using any of the word processing choices in the Mac. I ended up having to take the file to my Windows machine to check the formatting. This is a huge inconvenience. Maybe I'll have to look at installing Fusion and windows on my Mac... really didn't want to have to do this, but...

Hi Marie. I believe there is a submenu under edit which says insert. In that insert submenu, you can choose page breaks. I was having some trouble with the submenus last night but it was late and I'll play later today. They weren't pulling down when I tried to get into them.

Now I'm going to vent. I really whish Apple would very seriously get its act together and get these word processor issues to work well, once and for all. I can't help but be very frustrated because if one wants to keep a job in the real world, serious attention is needed for the fine points of working with a word processor. I sometimes get the feeling Apple thinks we blind people have nothing else to do and no interest in anything but playing with the Apple as a toy and using things like I-Tunes. I have nothing against I-Tunes and those who use it, but I would never keep my job for more than about a half hour using my Apple for word processing, because there is just too much I don't know and can't control about my documents,. That is totally unacceptable in this day and age. Yes, things are getting better but accessible Apple is not ready for prime time or the real world yet and that is disappointing in my view.

I did open a word doc and it seemed to relate to page numbers fine.

Glad to see that it works.

right, the vo document for some reason is not expressed in page numbers but when I insert page numbers into a document or import a document from word, they are honored.

Yes, if you have a document with page breaks or you create them from the insert submenu of the edit menu in text edit, using vo will trip the announcement of them.

Hi everybody. I was very happy to see that attributes are working much better with SL.

I have a few questions.

First, I understand that it is now possible to tell what page you are on using SL. How do you determine that?

I of course have Text Edit and Nisus Writer. But I'm also interested in Pages too.

My next question is the ability to find a page break in a document. Can that be done and how? I imagine it could be done with find but is there a way of physically finding a page break while reading the doucment?

Thank you all very much.
