Hi,

I have the problem with navigating the system tray a lot.  The only time I
had a problem with useing  JAWS - F11 navigation  was when the network icon
was in the tray.  I went into network settings and told it not to show the
icon in the system tray.  But I routinely have problems just navigating the
system tray with the cursor keys.  I had the problem on multiple machines
with versions 6.0, 6.1, 6.2 and 7.0 with XP Home.

Hi List:

I have noticed that using JFW 6.2 with XP (both Pro and Home), I cannot
reliably navigate through the System Tray Icons.  It doesn't matter whether
I tab to the System Tray and then use the arrow keys or use Jaws Key + F11.
It will not announce all the icons or will announce the same icon multiple
times.  All of my display, task bar, etc settings are set according to FS
recommendations.

Two observations:
1.  This is not an issue on Windows 2000.  It always works reliably.
2.  I just setup a new XP Pro PC.  It was reading the tray icons perfectly,
until I attached the computer to the network and it downloaded all the MS
update files.  Once all the updates were downloaded and the computer
rebooted several times, the unreliable function of reading system tray icons
began.  I hadn't made that observation on other XP machines, but this is the
first machine where I had done the majority of the setup prior to attaching
it to the network and downloading MS updates.

In any case, I'm interested if anyone else has this issue and what, if
anything, you have been able to do to solve the problem.
Thanks,
John
