RE: outlook 2007

Does the adjust jaws options thing only work in Outlook 2007?  Can I find
that in Outlook 2002 using JAWS 10.0.54?

Outlook Helpful Hints
The following are some helpful hints for using Outlook with JAWS.

Outlook Reading Pane
When using JAWS, the Outlook Reading Pane must be set to the bottom of the 
window or disabled. If the Reading Pane is set to the right, it forces the 
Message List Headers into Two-line mode, and only the first line is 
announced.

To set the Reading Pane to the bottom of the window, or to disable it, do 
the following:

Open Outlook.
Press ALT+V to open the View menu.
Choose the Reading Pane sub menu.
Select Bottom to set the pane to the bottom of the window, or select Off to 
disable the reading pane.
Outlook Options
While working in Outlook, you can press INSERT+V to change your options. 
Select an option with the arrow keys and then press SPACEBAR or use the 
Execute button to cycle through the available settings. Press ENTER to 
accept your changes and close the dialog box.

For information on the standard JAWS options that are not described in this 
section, see Adjust JAWS Options.

Announce Header Fields with Message
If this option is set to "Yes," then JAWS automatically reads the From and 
Subject fields when you open a message. If you change this option to "No," 
then JAWS does not automatically read this information.

Announce Frame and Link Count
When opening an HTML message, JAWS gives you a number of frames and links 
contained within the message. If you do not want to hear the count, set this

option to "No."

Read Messages Automatically
If you want JAWS to automatically read the message body from beginning to 
end, change this option to "Yes." If you do not want JAWS to automatically 
read the message body after reading the message header, then leave this 
option set to "No."

Tip: When reading messages automatically, the cursor may move faster than 
JAWS speech. If you stop speech with CTRL, you should press CTRL+HOME to 
move to the beginning of the message before continuing to read.

Auto-Complete Announcement
When you type an e-mail address into the To, CC, or BCC edit boxes, Outlook 
searches for matches in your address book and then automatically completes 
the entry for you. JAWS will now announce the address that Outlook 
automatically inserts into the edit box. To disable this feature, press 
INSERT+V, select "Announce Address List Auto-complete," and press the
SPACEBAR to choose "Off."

Message Attachment Notification
Turn this option on if JAWS is not detecting and announcing the presence of 
file attachments when you select a message.

Announce Information Bar Messages
In Outlook, the information bar frequently displays useful status 
information. For example, this bar informs you when attachments have been 
removed from a message, which account a message will be sent from, when you 
last replied to the current message, when the appointment/meeting you are 
creating conflicts with an existing appointment, when an appointment time 
has passed, and so on. If you want JAWS to automatically announce the 
contents of the information bar when reading messages, leave this option set

to "Yes."

Read/Unread Message Verbosity
Choose "Say Unread" if you want JAWS to announce, "Unread," when you select 
a message that you have not yet opened. If you change this option to 
"Silent," JAWS does not indicate unread messages.

Indicate Meeting Requests
If this option is on, JAWS indicates when the currently selected message is 
a meeting request. Turn this option off if you do not want JAWS to indicate 
whether a message is a meeting request. This option is only available in 
Outlook 2002 or later.

Forwarded Flag Announcement
Turn this option on if JAWS is not indicating messages that you have 
forwarded when you select them.

Replied Flag Announcement
Turn this option on if JAWS is not indicating messages that you have replied

to when you select them.

Message Flag Announcement
If this option is on, JAWS announces when the currently selected message has

one of Outlook's message status flags, such as Important, Business, Follow 
up, Personal, and so on. Turn this option off if you do not want those flags

announced. This option is only available in Outlook 2002 or later.

Block Quote, Frame, Heading, List, and Table Announcement
You can turn off block quote, frame, heading, list, and table announcement 
when reading HTML formatted e-mail messages, just as you can when viewing 
Web pages. To change these options, press INSERT+V, select the option you 
want to enable or disable, and press the SPACEBAR. For more information 
about these options, see HTML Options.

Optimizing Outlook
The following are choices and suggestions for optimizing Outlook options for

use with JAWS:

Calendar
TAB from the Folder List view to Calendar. From the View menu choose the 
Current View submenu. Choose from the following list: Day/Week/Month, 
Day/Week/Month with Auto Preview, Active Appointments, Events, Annual 
Events, and Recurring Appointments, By Category. All of these list views 
work well with JAWS.

Note: For best results with the Outlook Calendar, it is suggested that you 
use the Windows Classic theme for your system. This can be set through the 
Display option in the Windows Control Panel.

In Day/Week/Month view, use LEFT and RIGHT ARROW to move between the days of

the month. Use UP and DOWN ARROW to move between the different time slots 
for the current day. Press TAB or SHIFT+TAB to cycle through your 
appointments for the current day. To open an appointment, select it and 
press ENTER.

Tip: If JAWS does not read time slots or appointments in Day/Week/Month 
view, press ALT+CTRL+SHIFT+Z.

Contacts
TAB from the Folder List view to Contacts. From the View menu choose the 
current view submenu. Choose from the following list: Address Cards, 
Detailed Address Cards, Phone List, By Category, By Company, By Location, 
and By Follow Up Flag. All of these views work with JAWS.

Journal
TAB from the Folder List view to Journal. From the View menu choose the 
Current View submenu. For best results, use one of the following lists with 
JAWS: Entry List, Next 7 Days, and Phone List. List items By Type, By 
Contact, and By Category can be used, but are not recommended.

Notes
TAB from the Folder List view to Notes. From the View menu choose the 
Current View submenu. Choose one of the following lists: Notes List, Last 
Seven Days, By Category, or By Color. Icon view can be used with some trial 
and error.

Tasks
TAB from the Folder List view to Tasks. From the View menu choose the 
Current View submenu. Choose from the following list: Simple List, Detailed 
List, Active Tasks, Next Seven Days, Overdue Tasks, By Category, Assignment,

By Person Responsible, Completed Tasks. List item Task Time Line can be used

with some trial and error.

Note: Turn Preview Pane and AutoPreview OFF for best results. To turn OFF 
the Preview Pane, go to the View menu and press the DOWN ARROW key to move 
to the Preview Pane choice and press ENTER on the option to toggle the check

mark OFF. To turn off the AutoPreview feature, do the same, but choose 
AutoPreview instead of Preview Pane.

Reading MSAA Information
If you find that the selected item is abbreviated or not read completely by 
JAWS, press ALT+CTRL+SHIFT+M to read the MSAA (Microsoft Active 
Accessibility) information for that item. MSAA provides more details to 
JAWS, so it can read all the information available.

Visual Basic for Applications
JAWS only partially supports Visual Basic for Applications when launched 
from within Outlook.

Replying Directly to Senders on Mailing Lists
Users that subscribe to mailing lists have the ability to reply directly to 
the message sender's address, rather than the mailing list address, by using

the Reply Directly To Sender command, INSERT+SHIFT+R.
