Re: Reading Shared Calendars in Microsoft Outlook with JAWS
See the fixes listed in the update to JAWS 17 released today, which two other listers have posted in recent hours. I noticed Outlook’s calendar was included.

Subject: FW: Reading Shared Calendars in Microsoft Outlook with JAWS
Have any of you ever had any luck reading shared calendars while in Microsoft Outlook?
I work for the Alameda County Probation Department in Oakland, California, and every day I like to check a shared calendar on Outlook to see who will be the Officer of the Day. I am using Outlook 14 and am using Windows 7 at work. After getting into the Calendar using the Control+2 keystroke, I open the Files menu, arrow down to Open, and hit the Enter Key. A dialog appears asking me what to open. I arrow down to Shared Calendars and hit the Enter key. A dialog appears asking what shared calendar I am looking for. I type the words Probation Adult, and hit the Enter key. A variety of options appear. I arrow down to the Adult OD (Officer of the Day) calendar at the main Probation Center and hit the Enter key. And here’s where I am running into trouble. JAWS speaks Adult PC as the open calendar, but when I tab to read who will be the Officer of the Day on the given day, instead of reading from the O.D. calendar, JAWS reads the appointments on my personal calendar. I checked with Freedom Scientific. They told me to hit the F6 key to cycle between the calendars. When I tried it, it didn’t work. Am I doing something wrong? I’d appreciate hearing from anyone who has read Shared Calendars using Outlook.
