[jaws-uk] Re: System Tray

Hi Joan & Steve

This is quite strange, mine seems to work in the opposite way.  Half my 
System Tray icons are hidden as I have the Hide Inactive Buttons boxed 
ticked.  When I use Ins + F11 all the icons are in the list, even the hidden 
ones, whereas if I tab to the System Tray only the ones showing are read 
out, unless I press space bar on the expand button.   Just thought I'd 
mention that!  Am using Jaws 5 with Win XP Pro.
