RE: Microsoft Project 2007

Thanks - that is really helpful.  It's for a class and most of the
assignments are the basic uses of the software.

Yes, I have used it with both JAWS 9 and JAWS 11.

There are no specific scripts written for it, so it's not extremely 
friendly.

Biggest problems I've found is in the calendar section where you define
the 
dates for projects, and the definitions of work days, etc.

Lots of groping around with the JAWS cursor in many of these areas.

However the Gantt chart views and resources, work well.

What doesn't work well is in generating the reports. These are
predominantly 
graphical and are not accessible. Also the interface for selecting
reports 
is clumsy.

I found it most useful overall in defining a project and setting up the 
successors and predecessor, so that the entire timeline is laid out.
However 
using it to manage a project proves to be difficult -- trying to get to
the 
part where a task start/end date are to be edited in real time to see
what 
happens to all the tasks following it. Some of that I must admit is due
to 
my relative lack of expertise with the program.

Other than that, it's a powerful program and you can do most rudimentary

things with it.

Has anyone used Microsoft Project 2007 with JAWS 10 or 11?  How well
does it work?  Any information would be helpful.

Thanks
