Urgently need help! (about edit form in Word2010 with NVDA)


prem.translator@...
 

I recieved a form which is the templet for my Thesis. However, when I open the document I pressed enter and type down some information, it seems that the information didn't appear in the edit box, but before it. Moreover, it appeared one line for each information instead of in the same line like in the form.
e.g.
There are three edit boxes in the same line, Title, firstname and surname, but the information I put is not in the box and separated to be one information for each line.

How can I deal with it?
Please help me and really sorry for my English.

Hello. Your English is far better than I can speak whatever your
native language is. Don't worry about it, please. As long as we can
understand each other, we're good. What's your name?

As to your problem, I rather suspect that your form is in protected
mode. You should save it in order to disable that. I recommend saving
it to a different name than the original, so you'll always have that 1
as a backup in case the form you're working with somehow gets messed
up (it happens). Also, when you do save it, the computer will want to
save it to a temporary folder. Browse to your documents folder or
another of your choosing & save it there instead.

Then you can use the tab & shift-tab key to fill in the fields.

Please let me know if my instructions are clear &/or if they help.
Good luck & much success on your thesis.

Hello,

 

due to the several methods to create a form in MS Word, we need an example document to help you efficiently.

 

If the form is like a table, where the Text (first name) is in the first column and the form field itself in the second column, then you can just select the formfield in the second column and delete it or just replace it with your first name.

If the edit field cannot be deleted, then put the cursor on it and press the context menu key. Then press downarrow until you hear something about “edit control” or something like that. Open that dialog and Edit there your text.

 

 

Best

Adriani

It sounds like whoever created the form didn't know what one does at the end to allow it to be a fill in form.  I am presuming this thing is a document template, that is, a dotx file, not a docx file, which is a normal word document.

The creator should have put protection on the document template that allows the end user only to fill out forms.  After the form fields are filled in it is possible to take all protection off, if that's necessary.

Another thought is to save it as good old DOC say word 2003 or something else. Then if you still cannot get any sense, reload it into Jarte as often that presents things normally.
It would be good if you could get a sighted person to see what is going on, as it may well be the way its formatted that is making things appear wrong when they are in fact right. If its a pdf then to be honest I'd say somebody at the agency who sent it needs some disability training!
