I went to their web site for something, and there is a notice that they are having technical problems.
What was the question about google calendar?

Did any of you get the message I sent on Monday about the trouble I am having accessing Google calendar? I have not heard from anybody and this morning I can’t even get hold of Freedom Scientific.

Subject: Using Google Calendar with JAWS

Dear Listers:

Recently I listened to a Freedom Scientific archived webinar from last year that talked about using JAWS with Google Calendar. I have decided I want to try to learn to use Google Calendar but every time I go to calendar.google.com JAWS starts speaking to me in a foreign language. When I called Freedom Scientific Technical Support they told me several other people had had the same problem and said it had something to do with Google settings. I went to my Google account, signed in using Facebook, found Settings, and when I checked to see what language was the default language it showed English United States, which is just the language setting I thought I had. Then after discovering that the default language was the correct one I got out of my Google account and opened up Google Chrome, which is my Internet browser, hit the Alt+L keystroke to open up the addressbar, entered calendar.google.com, and hit the Enter key. When the page loaded, here is what was on it:

NaÄ&#65533;ítané


As you can hear, this is definitely a foreign language.

I am sending a “cc,â€&#65533; of this message to Vispero Support with the hope that either one of you or one of them will be able to put a finger on what is happening and possibly tell me how to rectify this problem and have Google Calendar start speaking in English.

Thank you for any help you can give.
