Short Description:

JAWS does not state the status of messages grouped by conversation in

Outlook Express



Problem:

In Outlook Express 5 or higher, if you change your view so that messages are

grouped by conversation, JAWS does not state the status "expanded" or

"collapsed" to indicated opened or closed groups of messages.



Solution:

In order to make JAWS announce the expanded or collapsed state of grouped

e-mail messages, perform the following:

1. Start Outlook Express.

2. From the View menu, select Group Messages by Conversation if this option

is not already selected.

3. TAB to message list view.

4. Press INSERT+NUM PAD MINUS to route the JAWS Cursor to the PC cursor.

5. Press CTRL+LEFT ARROW.

6. Press INSERT+G to open the Graphics Labeler.

7. In the Label edit box, type "Collapsed". If you use Braille, press TAB

again and type "Collapsed" in Braille Label edit box.

8. Press ALT+O to activate the OK button and close the Graphics Labeler.

9. Press INSERT+NUM PAD PLUS.

10. Press the RIGHT ARROW key to expand the grouped e-mail messages.

11. Press INSERT+NUM PAD MINUS to route the JAWS Cursor to the PC cursor.

12. Press INSERT+G to open the Graphics Labeler.

13. In the Label edit box, type "Expanded". If you use Braille, press TAB

again and type "Expanded" in Braille Label edit box.

14. Press ALT+O to activate the OK button and close the Graphics Labeler.

15. To verify this change, quit and then restart Outlook Express. JAWS

should now say, "Expanded" when a group of messages is opened and

"Collapsed" with the group is closed.
