Yes.  My post works for Outlook XP, Outlook 2003, and possibly (since my
methods use hotkeys and not menus) Outlook 2007 and 2010 (though I don't yet
have either 2007 or 2010).
Moreover, this is the real Outlook, not Outlook express.
I heard a podcast about a pretty decent desktop/Internet-based
calendar/reminder/to-do product called Remember the Milk.
Strange name, but the podcast demonstrated it using a screen reader, though
I don't remember whether it was JAWS or Window-Eyes, though I think the
former.

Ed,
 
Just to be clear, you are talking about Outlook 2003, correct?

Bob:
I know you addressed this to Sue, but having just entered an appointment in
Outlook, I thought I'd answer.
From pretty much anywhere in Outlook (other than inside a message, task,
appointment, or the like), just press control-shift-A.  "A" is logical since
it is an "appointment" you are creating.
You will be asked for Subject and Location.  Those are the first two edit
boxes.  There is a combo box that follows, but I always skip it.
Then comes the start date.  The present date will come up as a default.
Just edit the date and hit tab.
The next field is the start time.  Mine is set to jump by half hour
increments.  So, arrow up and down until you have the start time.  If the
time is an odd one, e.g., 11:45 instead of 11:30, just edit.  Be sure to
indicate A M or P M.  You can freely edit these fields.
Tab again and you will hit the end date.  Unless the appointment runs for
several days, just hit tab because this field should have the same date as
the start date.
Hit tab again, and you are in the edit field for "end time."  You can edit
this just like the start time.  Mine defaults to duration of half hour.  So,
if I have a meeting starting at 11:30, the default end time will be 12:00.
Again, edit up and down to increase or decrease the end time.  Again, be
sure to check the AM/PM.
There are some other fields that are not important.  Just tab until you come
to "reminder."  Mine is turned on by default.  If it isn't, check it to turn
it on.  Tab again to get the advance time.  Mine is set, by default, to
remind me 15 minutes in advance of the appointment.  This too is an edit
field.  Use up and down arrows to increase or reduce the reminder time by
Outlook's set increments, or just type in the amount of time for a reminder.
You can edit the reminder "sound," but I just use the default.
For me, there is only one other useful field, and that is "Notes."
Keep tabbing until you come to "Notes."  It is a free form edit box.  Type
anything you want in the way of reminders, e.g., be sure to bring the Smith
trademark files or Don't forget to ask about Pete's daughter who is a
freshman at Yale.
Type in anything you like.
Then, press Control plus S to save and Escape to leave the appointment.
To reach the calendar to review it, press Control plus 2 from just about
anywhere in Outlook.
There are alternative ways to do the above.  The above works for me.  Hope
it is useful for you.

Samara,

Many people use MS Outlook for such tasks. Have you already tried that?

Hey guys. I was wondering if there was a program that was accessible with
jaws and was a calendar. A calendar where I could store birthdays and
events, scheduled tasks and such, and that had an alarm that I could set to
go off when these birthdays or tasks came up. Anything?
