Jim,


Yes I tend to have problems navigating the tray, sometimes it will not
move 
through any of the icons unless I press the arrow keys repeatedly and
then 
it doesn't go through the icons correctly.  I then have to use INS-F11 
option to navigate the tray.  I use windows XP  mode set to FS specs.
except 
I use the XP style of explorer "My Computer" Instead of the classic
explorer 
settings.

Rick

Hi do you have your system set up using the classic start menu? How many
items are on your system tray? Perhaps there are a lot of items on the
system tray and they do not all fit and that is causing jaws not to be
able to click them with the insert f11 command. Now there is a windows
problem with the system tray that when you use the left and right arrows
some on the tool bar focus does not change from the clock or options are
skipt.  To fix this press left arrow once and then it should move right
again correctly.  This is reproducible with three screen readers on
windows xp so it is clearly a windows problem.  If this is the problem
you are speaking of then the fs list system tray icons feature will help
you get around this problem. Hth

When I got JAWS about a year ago I went through the documents that FS
gave me as far as setting up XP to their liking.  The only thing I have
not set to FS guidelines is I use My Computer instead of Explorer, I
prefer it. I did everything else they told me to do.

I have listened to all the tapes, CD's Daisy books and everything I have

been able to find at the FS site.  I know I am no expert in setting up
or using JAWS but I know when I have a problem and when I don't.

It is indeed an FS problem if they don't bother to explain any of those
configurations you just described. And yes I did look at the FS Help and

guess what, it's not there.
Oh yes it is.  It is in the jaws with windows xp topic it clearly tells
you how your start menu for xp should be setup. Here is the note in
question. Start Menu List of 6 items 1. From Control Panel, Move to
Taskbar and Start menu and press ENTER. 2. From the Taskbar page, press
ALT+G to move to and uncheck Group Similar Taskbar Buttons. 3. Press H 
ALT+to move to and uncheck the check box for Hide inactive icons. 4.
Press CTRL+TAB to move to the Start Menu page. 5. Select Classic start
menu. 6. Press ENTER to close this dialog box.

list end
My own remarks.
Note step five is usualy optional but if you notus that you are having
problems  on your setup tracking menus or yes the system tray you should
do step five. I have worked with jaws on over 200 computers now and have
never needed to do step five and after completing  the configuration for
xp have never had a problem with the system tray this is on any version
of jaws going back to 4.02 when xp was interduced. Hth
