RE: multiple appointments in Outlook calendar

Hi,

I use the outlook 2003 calendor just like you with jaws 8.
When I am in day view. When I go to calendar, it says the date. Then if I
errow left or right it will say the next day or previous day and if there
are any appointments it will say for example 2 appointmentws. At this point
I hit tab and it announces the first appointment and time of that
appointment. Hit tab again and it announces the next appointment and time,
and hit tab again and it says day view and date and two appointments. You
can go backwords sby doing shift tab.

Now when you tab to an appointment and it is announced you can type in that
space or hit enter and you go to the appointment page which you use to fill
out a new appointment. On this page all the info is filled out and you can
change anything there you would like and then hit the save and close button
to make changes.

Subject: multiple appointments in Outlook calendar

All:
I am wondering if any of you have come across this issue and figured a
way around it that I am not finding.  I have recently started using the
calendar portion of Outlook 2003 much more extensively.  I am running
latest version of JAWS 8.  When using the day view, The calendar reads
fine as long as their is only one appointment per day.  I can move to
the day, press tab once and hear the appointment scheduled for that
particular day.  I can then press tab again to return to the day view.
Moving to a day that contains multiple appointments however, creates a
bit of a problem.  Pressing tab on these days will usually cause JAWS to
read the first appointment scheduled for that day.  According to help
text, at this point I should be able to press tab a second time and hear
the next appointment scheduled for this day.  This does not work and
often I hear the entire day being read half hour by half hour.  It is
also a bit tricky to move back to the day view in which left and right
arrows go from day to day when this problem occurs.  The help text also
states these appointments are simply edit boxes and I should be able to
use standard reading commands to read the text of the appointment.  This
also does not work.
Am I missing something or is this just the way the Calendar cookie
crumbles when using JAWS?
