Word Advanced Features 3.7.12

  by Chip Orange This app is rated 4 out of 5 stars with 2 ratings. XML Feed for Word Advanced Features 3.7.12

Enhances the MS Word experience by speaking advanced paragraph formatting information, table column/row titles, footnotes and endnotes (numbers and their text), form field prompts, document line numbers, document comments, and shading colors. Now adds a feature to analyze your document for unwanted formatting changes. Also changes the speaking of the status bar so it's more understandable, and tells you when tracked changes, macro recording, extended selection, or overtype modes are enabled (Word 2003 only). Also restricts the speaking of verbosity text attributes to the document window only. (Note: requires the full version of Word; not the "starter" version, nor the version used as the Outlook message editor). The information is only spoken as it changes, and the formatting information only when the "format alert" option is enabled, or the app preference settings "Always Speak Format Changes" is checked which forces it to be spoken. The app offers many ways to determine which row and/or column is a "header", and so may be spoken. These include using the Word "header" attribute for table rows, specially named bookmarks which identify table header rows and/or columns, and forcing the top row or the first column to be treated as a "header". Optionally prevents the pressing of the tab key (when in the bottom-right cell of a table) from adding a new blank row to the table. The footnotes/endnotes and document comments are read in their proper place in the document text, and have options for controlling whether the numbers and/or the associated text are read. All of the "special" info such as table headers and footnote text are optionally read in a slightly different voice for easy identification. Form field prompts are spoken where there is no prompt defined for the field; it is found by examining the document, looking in neighboring table cells or lines, for appropriately positioned text in the document. The app also stops the speaking of unwanted additional information when tabbing to an editbox field. Document line numbers are optionally spoken. The script adds two hotkeys for quick document navigation by page, and a third brings up a dialog showing a list of text boxes and other shapes which have embedded text, and the user is able to go to any of these text blocks. Three hotkeys exist for creating a place mark in the document (without modifying the document), for returning to the mark later, and for selecting the text between the mark and the current position. The app announces the status of page headers and footers, the number of shapes with embedded text, the number of frames surrounding text, and maximizes the document window at the time a document is opened. Finally, it works around some bugs in WE so that when resizing the font for a selected block of text (with commands such as control left bracket), the proper font size is spoken, and a second bug where read right of cursor does not find the cursor position properly, and a third where WE doesn't read the number for a numbered paragraph which has a style separator, and a forth where WE doesn't speak a hard page break, and a fifth where WE doesn't read some context menu choices for Word 2007 or later.

Version 2.2.0


10/7/2010 10:46:02 AMAdded ability to locate and speak form field prompts, when there is no prompt defined for a field. fixed many bugs thanks to volunteer beta testers. added hotkeys for easily navigating to next/previous page. now works with Word 2010.

Version 2.1.0


9/17/2010 3:29:45 PMfixed version number so it will show as an update to 2.0.2 (I hope!)

Version 2.0.2


7/30/2010 4:38:41 PMfixed another bug dealing with reading table headers of non-uniform tables

Version 2.0.1


7/28/2010 1:02:10 PMfixed bug where error would occur if used with a table which had non-uniform rows or columns (thanks to Richard who sent me a table which caused the error).

Version 2.0.0


7/22/2010 3:27:34 PMfixed bug related to speaking of table headers. Added table header rotor of control-shift-H, just as in browse mode tables. Added a script menu choice for a document explaining with examples, the various ways table headers can be specified.

Version 1.98


7/14/2010 11:59:40 AMbug fix

Version 1.97


7/12/2010 3:08:53 PMbug fix

Version 1.95


6/30/2010 1:23:29 PMbug fix

6/14/2010 4:06:43 PMfixed bug re placement of bookmarks to indicate table header row/columns.

Version 1.92


6/7/2010 1:09:38 PMbug fixes; including one where the table summary was not being spoken when entering a table, and another where an error message was being spoken when using the extended text (f8) method.

Version 1.91


6/3/2010 9:10:28 PMbug fix; handles a crash which results when an unexpected dialog is displayed by Word, and therefore cannot respond to commands from the script.

Version 1.82


5/12/2010 2:05:00 PMadded additional formatting information which is spoken if "format alert" is not enabled; this is info which "format alert" normally includes in everything it speaks, such as left indent and paragraph alignment. however, like all formatting info, it's only spoken if and when it changes from the previous paragraph, not every keystroke.

Version 1.81


5/12/2010 11:15:11 AMAdded a script menu option for forcing the changing format information to be spoken, without having to enable format alert. There is also a script menu choice for going directly into the verbosity dialog settings to control how table row and column headers are spoken.

Version 1.8.10


5/28/2010 6:00:39 PMbug fixes, including script wasn't reading table row/column titles when windowEyes table movement hotkeys were used; now it reads table titles with either Word or windowyes table movement commands. also better behaved with 2007.

Version 1.78


4/26/2010 12:14:29 PMfixed bug when tables setting was set to "row"or "column". now will use the first row or first column properly when using these browsemode tables settings.

Version 1.77


4/20/2010 9:57:20 AMfinally fixes the bug which caused "variable is undefined" at random times! (Thanks to Gary M for his help)

Version 1.76


4/16/2010 5:14:25 PMbug fixes; especially the one which randomly seemed to cause a "variable undefined" error (we can hope!)

Version 1.72


4/2/2010 12:40:18 PMfixed bug on a few systems where a "undeclared variable" error was caused by object model info not loading

Version 1.71


4/1/2010 5:33:45 PMbug fies, including now works with a protected form document.

Version 1.70

Version 1.62


3/30/2010 1:33:36 PMbug fixes.

Version 1.60


3/24/2010 2:47:38 PMadded menu choices in the script menus; updated documentation; bug fixes.

Version 1.50


3/9/2010 11:02:22 AMAdded speaking of row titles (a.k.a. column headers).

Version 1.40


1/17/2010 11:01:10 PMadded ability to read table column titles, controlled by settings of verbosity > browsemode > tables. Reading row titles, along with other related enhancements, should follow soon.

Version 1.33


10/23/2009 2:50:26 PMfixed bug which would cause crash if spell-check was running and certain keys were pressed.

Version 1.32


9/20/2009 7:42:36 PMfixed a bug that would crash the script under rare circumstances (due to a problem in GWToolKit, this would take down window eyes entirely)

Version 1.31


9/17/2009 10:38:32 AMfixed bug with interception of Word hot keys and cursor keys; was intercepting these keys in other applications.

Version 1.30


9/16/2009 2:37:04 PMAdded a work-around for a WE 7.1 bug (demonstrated in 2003, may exist in other versions), where when WE is reading to the left or right of the cursor, it does not find the proper cursor position. There are times when this script's work around does not read all the information displayed on the screen (such as when automatic numbering of paragraphs is used), but for the most part, it's more accurate than the current WE 7.1 method of reading a partial cursor line.

Version 1.23


7/20/2009 2:58:23 PMfixed bug, related to a timing issue, which would cause it to not be able to access a document's comments sometimes.

Version 1.22


7/17/2009 11:48:10 AMfixed bug, which would cause the script to crash when exiting Word, and this would crash the error reporting program, so that no error was being reported.

Version 1.20


7/2/2009 11:19:17 PMNow speaks it's additional formatting information whenever any navigation cursor key is used, not just the arrow keys. Now speaks the proper font size when using font sizing keyboard commands such as control left bracket or control shift less than. Now requires version 7.1 or later.

Version 1.11


6/5/2009 1:21:04 PMcorrected the version number to work around a bug in WE 7.01.

Version 1.1


6/3/2009 5:18:52 PMper request, added "page break before" and "right indent" to the list of tracked and spoken paragraph formatting attributes. fixed a bug which allowed the script to hang while starting if Word failed to start, or the system shutdown.

Version 1.03

Congratulations Chip on a great app. This app has certainly evolved over the years. I tried it once a long time ago and wasn't terrifically impressed. It is great now and gives a lot of important additional information. I also like the added information being spoken in a different voice.
