[jaws-uk] Re: Outlook date navigator

Oops, replied to the wrong email previously. Here's the right reply with the
right subject line...

Steve,

        Brian Hartgen came up with the solution on another list. Windows
needs to be in Windows Classic mode in order for both the day and the date
to be read out in the Outlook calendar.

        Checked my machine at work before I left, which did indeed have
Windows Classic selected as the desktop theme, and found that at home I was
languishing on Windows XP style. 

        Just a quick change in the Control Panel/Display settings and it's
sorted.

        Hope this helps.

Tink.

Scott,

The Alt + UpArrow and Alt + DownArrow are Outlook keystrokes. JAWS has
assigned these keystrokes to opening and closing a list box in the default
settings, and it appears that this is what it tries to do if you use them in
the Outlook Calendar. Try pressing the passkey through of Insert + 3 first,
and you should find you can then move by week.

Hi 
 
I've been reading with interest the thread on the speaking of days in
Outlook calendar.  This is something I've wondered myself, and after Steve's
post about amending the regional settings, I'm glad to say it has worked a
treat for me.  
 
The only thing that springs to mind, Tink, is to check that you copied the
letters exactly as Steve put them in his post.  They were a very odd
combination of d's m's and yes with upper and lower case instances, but I'm
sure you probably got it right.
 
Flushed with success, I decided to delve into the Outlook help system to see
if there were any navigational keystrokes for moving around in the calendar
as is the case with the Pacmate pocket Outlook calendar.  to my delight, I
discovered the date navigator keystrokes which move you back and forth
through weeks and months.  
 
These are a combination of alt with home/end, up/down arrow and page up and
down.  they move you to the beginning/end of the week, previous and next
occurrence of the day you are focused on and beginning and end of the month.

 
Unfortunately, the alt with up and down arrow don't appear to work for me.
I've tried it in all views, but to no avail.  Anyone got any ideas?
 
XP home with J7.0.
 
regards ... Scott
