Hi Peter,

Agreed, saying that JAWS will never be able to access them because they're not 
there is just daft. System Access can access them, which completely destroys 
that theory.

Have you even looked for a way to display them yet. Lets not start moaning 
before you've examined all possibilities.

I haven't tried that with JAWS but I am not really commenting on JAWS access to 
it at the moment since we know work needs to be done will be done.  My comment 
is more addressed towards Microsofts position of hiding all system tray icons 
by default which will still affect JAWS users even once compatibility is

Doesn't windows key B work in windows 7 for accessing the system tray.  Insert 
f11 is a screenreader command whereas windows key b is a windows command.

  Hi Tris 

  Well, after a few attempts, I managed to get jfw v10 installed, and its 
working really well.

  One thing I've noticed so far, is I'm ot able to bring up the system tray 
using insert and f11.  It just says, failed to bring up system tray, or 
something similar to that.

  I'm just waiting for my activation count to be reset before trying to 
authorise it.

    There could be a variety of issues at present since JAWS 10.0 has not been 
adapted to run Windows 7.0.  Bear in mind that Windows 7.0 is still beta and as 
I say work to make JAWS Windows 7.0 compliant.  Also I wonder if perhaps you 
are using 64bit Windows 7.0 perhaps which at this present stage will complicate 
matters considerably. 

    Be assured though to work to make JAWS work with 7.0 is underway.
