Hi Sue.

I'm using jaws for windows version 10, however this shouldn't matter.  If you 
can find the contacts tree view then you'll probably find it has closed.  
Either way, tabbing around the main messenger dialog should focus on the tree 
view eventually, that's what I've found works best.

  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.

      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?
