        If you use the up/down arrow keys to move from one line of a project
plan to the next, Jaws will tell you what level the task is at. For example,
Level 1 or Level 2. Each level is indented and indicates a set of child
tasks to the preceding level.

        For example:

Task 1, Level 1.
        Task 2, Level 2.
                Task 3, Level 3.
                Task 4, Level 3.
                Task 5, Level 3.
        Task 6, Level 2.
                Task 7, Level 3.
                Task 8, Level 3.

        You have a parent task at level 1, task 1. There are two child
tasks, tasks 2 and 6, both at level 2. Within each of these, there are
subsequent grand child tasks at level 3.  Tasks at each level would be
indented slightly from their parent task. I've indented the above example
with tabs, so you may be able to get a feel for the idea in this email.

Talking about ms project 2003, does anyone know how to know the indentation
level of one cell (or one line, I don't know) with jaws? For example: I have
one task with subtasks and these subtasks must be indented.
I indent them with alt+shift+rightarrow key, but when there are many
children and children of these, I don't know their indentation level.


Best regards

Hi Charles,
If you are using JAW 9, Tell freedomscientific about this using feedback
form for the public beta. In the mean time, I would go back to Project 2003.
The screen reader support is not perfect, but the software is usable.

I am currently learning Microsoft Project 2007.  I am having the following
issues and concerns:

1.  When I click on the tools, options button, the program just blows up.

2.  When trying to link tasks and trying to change the type of link using a
couple of different methods, the program blows up.

I'm not sure what other problems there are.  I am currently using Microsoft
project 2007 but am considering returning to Microsoft Project 2003, or even
earlier.  I understand that support was put in for Microsoft Project 2000
but have been unable to find it.  Does anyone know where I might get the
tutorial for the Microsoft Project 2000 where it may be helpful while trying
to use 2007.
