Put the view into day, week, month and then hit insert a and it puts you on
the first appointment and if it does not read the appointment just do jaws
key read line.  The cool thing is if you do the insert a a you get the
vertural viewer and it list the day's appointments events etc. in groups.
i.e.  events no events appointments 3 then each appointment.
