Hi Ant,
I could be wrong, but I think on the dashboard, you use the window
chooser menu, VO keys F2 twice and select them from there. Please correct
me if I am wrong.


Take Care

Hi Vickie;

How do you select the different widgets or applications?

In other words, when I pull up my dashboard, the only application that seems
to come up is the calculator.

Hi Everyone;

They say necessity is the Mother of invention and, indeed it is.

While I was working in the checking account I needed to use the
calculator.

It worked.

I can use the calculator but, is their anything else that I can use
on the dashboard?

What are widgets and, can they be used with vo?

When I use the calculator, I tab to the number and then press it with
the vo keys and the spacebar. Is their a more direct way?


Thanks for taking the time to read this email and a very healthy and
happy and safe LABOR DAY to all of us in the USA.

Sincerely
