What screen reader are you using? Using System Access, I noticed that In the new messenger and also the last version I found myself in a menu where I could change my display picture, view E-mail and other things. I got out of it with the virtual mouse. I never got this with Jaws.

Hi Sue.

It is possible that the contacts tree is closed. Tab around until you here tree view, then press the right arrow to open the tree and access your contacts. Incidentally, the latest version of messenger is 9.0, the one before that was 8.5.

All the best, Ibrahim.

Subject: [access-uk] Windows Live Messenger.


I've recently downloaded the latest version of Windows Live Messenger which I think is version 8.6. In previous versions of Messenger, my list of contacts has always appeared when the focus was on Windows Live and I could cursor down the list to see who was online etc. my contact list doesn't seem to be on this main screen now and I'm wondering if there's a quick way of getting into it without having to go into send instant message from the dropdown menus along the top of the screen and finding the contact from there. I know it's just a small thing, but I liked it when the contact list was just there, and I could see who was online quite easily.

Any suggestions on how to get around this?
