[macvoiceover] Re: selecting non-sequential text

You know,

I was just going to ask if some one was writing all of this down. You folks are way ahead of me.

Hello Marcy and all:

I am sending this out to make sure that the directions are a tad clearer. Let me know if the modifications made are a tad better to avoid confusion.

Confusion is bad (grin).

1. Enter addressbook.

2. Move to your list of contacts.

3. Press VO shift + f3. You should hear cursor tracking off.

4. To highlight the names you want press vo command spacebar. to move down the list press and hold VO + down arrow. When you get to another name you wish to highlight release the arrow key and press vo command + spacebar.

5. When you are done with all of the names you wish to highlight press command C to copy.

6. Press VO shift + f3 to turn cursor tracking back on.

7. Move to where you wish to place the names and press command v.

Note, if you wish to see how many names have been highlighted you can use vo + f6 anywhere in the process. and, if you want to check to see if the name you wish to highlight is under the mouse cursor you may use vo + f5 to check. If the name you want to highlight is not under the cursor you may move it there by using vo command + f5.

Let me know if those are clearer both for you and thereby for others.

Hi, Patrick,
You're not gonna like this... It didn't work. All it does is put in the last contact I select. I tried it twice, making sure I followed your directions to the letter, and number smile. But, alas, it just didn't fly. Think it's a bug? I really appreciate directions like you just gave, though! You certainly deserve the cookie for your effort grin! What kind is your favorite? Oh, yes, if anyone else tries this and it works, please let us all know!
Cookie, cookie, cookie starts with c!  Guess I'm in trouble... Marcy

Hello Marcy and all:

Attempting to get in quickly on the cookie offer (wink). My address is: *****

Have you given the turning off cursor tracking option a shot? If not, you might want to give that a shot. If you have tried it and it did not work, please write back quickly. Do not wish to miss the cookie (smile).

1. Enter addressbook.

2. Move to your list of contacts.

3. Press VO shift + f3. You should hear cursor tracking off.

4. To highlight the names you want press vo command spacebar. to move down the list press VO + down arrow. When you get to another name you wish to highlight press vo command + spacebar.

6. Press VO shift + f3 to turn cursor tracking back on.

7. Move to where you wish to place the names and press command v.

Let us know if that works.

C is for cookie and that's good enough for me (grin). If you know that reference you are in trouble.
