Re: Can anyone help with using Access?

one thing that used to work, is either hitting insert and f1 twice quickly in 
the screen that you want the information on, or insert h in the screen, that 
used to bring up keystrokes not mentioned in the general file that were 
pertinent to that particular database function.

  Thanks. I did look at the help system, that's actually the first place I 
went. It says that 2007 is supported, and even has several keystrokes listed. 
Unfortunately there seems to be no keystroke for the one thing I'm needing at 
this very moment, that is, the supposedly simple job of adding a data field to 
a table. Their website had nothing at all about Access that I could find.

  I do have a call in to one of their dealers in Oklahoma, to see if maybe I 
could get some help there, and someone did email me that I plan to contact 
privately since I know this is somewhat off topic for this list.

  Most likely, I'm just missing something simple, though I can't for the life 
of me figure out what it might be.

    I think people at the Massachusetts Commission also use Access.  I don't 
use it myself but would recommend that you look at the JAWS help system under 
"Popular Applications" to see which versions they officially support.  I'd also 
look for scripts written by other people to which FS may provide a pointer on 
their web site.  Finally, I would start using google to find out if you can 
locate some person or group that may have posted scripts to their web site 
without FS learning about them - this last one is not too likely to pay off as 
they do a pretty good job of getting links to third party developers both 
professional and volunteer.

    I don't know about 2007 but the Iowa department for the blind has some 
programs on using Access with earlier versions of Jaws.  The key strokes seem 
to carry over to later versions.  You can Google them, I can't remember the 
name of the program right now.  They have tutorials on lots of MS programs and 
using Jaws.

      If anyone has familiarity with using Access 2007 with Jaws, and would be 
willing to give me some assistance privately, it would mean more than I could 
say. I've got a project for my database management class due, but I can't seem 
to get even simple tasks like adding a field to a table to work. I'm  hardly 
computer illiterate, but this is beyond frustrating and it's only the beginning 
of the class. Seems FS has no new tutorials, and nothing at all on Access.
