I use Google Calendar al the time with Jaws, but I’m using Microsoft Edge rather than Chrome. I’ve never encountered the language issue with it. I suggest trying a different browser. Also, the app is quite accessible, I use both concurrently with no issue at all.
If you’d like to troubleshoot one-on-one, feel free to reach out and we can have a chat. Not to worry group, if Rick does choose this option, I’ll write out a “how we fixed it”. 😊

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:
