I am a JAWS user. I use Google products every day, and I agree that I lose some productivity.
I use Outlook for Gmail, although I also use the website some of the time. I have learned some tricks that make it usable, but it’s the least accessible of all of the Google apps I have tried.
Google calendar is wonderfully accessible with JAWS. I almost never revert to the calendar in Outlook.
With Google calendar, it’s easy to invite people to meetings, and I can select a meeting time time based on the availability of the recipients I have added to the invitation.
It’s the one Google app that has added to my productivity.

I'm not a Google fan, and you are right, the outlook calendar is far better.
But, are you still going to be using Office, or have to use the online Google interface?
I couldn't imagine being nearly as productive with the Google interface.
