it's a status menu, not a toolbar.

Well, to find out the time you can go to the toolbar where the clock is with ctrl+F8, then left arrow through the menus and then down arrow.

And thanks, I never new about the ctrl key shortcut!

Hi everyone,

Every day I am finding more reasons to love my Mac!

Last night I found out that you can set the clock to announce the time
at given intervals.  I set mine to announce the time every 15 minutes,
and I was able to watch the hours tick away as I tried to set up my
scanner! <grin>

Then, this morning as I was reading the VO getting started PDF file, I
found out that as I'm reading the document, if I press the CTRL key to
stop reading, and go and get another cup of coffee, when I come back,
all  I need to do is press the CTRL key again, and VO starts reading
right where it left off, within a word or two!  Absolutely amazing!
And VO is reading this PDF a lot better than Jaws did in Acrobat!

One thing I haven't come across yet, is there a keystroke to have the
time announced?

Thanks all,

Russell
