Hi Claudia,
Here's how you use Windows Find with JAWS.
1. From any program on your computer, press the windows key and f.
2. This will bring up a search page. Press control and end to get to the
bottom of the page where it says "click here to use search companion"
3. Press enter.
4. Press tab until you hear "all files and folders button". Press enter
again.
5. You'll hear "all or part of the file name". Type in what you remember.
6. If this is all you know about the file, press alt and r to begin
searching. If you know of other attributes (where it might be on your
computer, its size, etc., Navigate with tab and fill all info you want. Tab
until you hear "search button", or press alt r after filling in all the
information you know.

Hope this helps.

Sarah

Nicole,

I use JAWS -- it is a God send, I would honestly be lost without it. Since
we are in this topic I will pick your brains. I am having trouble finding a
document, let's say a word document that may have some words in it, such as
"blind student". So, when I am in "my documents" I know there is a search
field, but I can't seem to get into it without the help of a sighted person.
How do I search for a document in a specific folder, with just part of the
title?

Regards,


Claudia B. Perry

    I'm in the process of declaring my major as computer science.  I lost my
site when I was four, so I use Braille a lot.  However, I do read a tiny bit
slow at times, so I sometimes use the screen reader if there is a lot to
read.  What technology do you use?
