The Alt + UpArrow and Alt + DownArrow are Outlook keystrokes. JAWS has
assigned these keystrokes to opening and closing a list box in the
default settings, and it appears that this is what it tries to do if you
use them in the Outlook Calendar. Try pressing the passkey through of
Insert + 3 first, and you should find you can then move by week.

Subject: [jaws-uk] Outlook date navigator

I've been reading with interest the thread on the speaking of days in
Outlook calendar.  This is something I've wondered myself, and after
Steve's post about amending the regional settings, I'm glad to say it
has worked a treat for me.  
The only thing that springs to mind, Tink, is to check that you copied
the letters exactly as Steve put them in his post.  They were a very odd
combination of d's m's and yes with upper and lower case instances, but
I'm sure you probably got it right.
Flushed with success, I decided to delve into the Outlook help system to
see if there were any navigational keystrokes for moving around in the
calendar as is the case with the Pacmate pocket Outlook calendar.  to my
delight, I discovered the date navigator keystrokes which move you back
and forth through weeks and months.  
These are a combination of alt with home/end, up/down arrow and page up
and down.  they move you to the beginning/end of the week, previous and
next occurrence of the day you are focused on and beginning and end of
the month.  
Unfortunately, the alt with up and down arrow don't appear to work for
me.  I've tried it in all views, but to no avail.  Anyone got any ideas?
XP home with J7.0.
