moderated A Specific Message for Brian Vogel
On October 26th, you sent me a message in reply to a message I sent to the group about the terrible time I am having trying to get JAWS to work with Google Calendar on my computer. I replied to this message three days ago, but as of yet have not heard from you. There is one thing, though, that you said in your message that I cannot figure out how to do. You suggested that I use More Options in order to receive e-mail notifications. In the settings menu I cannot find More Options, so how do you get it to work?
In the message I sent you on November 11, I answered the questions you had asked me when you were trying to give me advice about the use of Google Calendar. The message is below, so now I hope that perhaps you might be able to help me, as nobody else has.

Subject: RE: How Many of you out there have used Google Calendar?
I am very comfortable with Outlook calendar—in fact, much more so than with Google Calendar. The Google calendar I am using is my own, and I am trying to use it from the web. Every time I open up my browser, which is Chrome, I hit Alt+L, and when the addressbar pops up I enter calendar.google.com and hit the Enter key, and the calendar comes up with no trouble. I have learned how to create an event, but it is just the notifications I am concerned about. When I get into the Settings menu and go down to where the notification settings are I hit the Enter key, and when the combo box comes up I see there are alert notifications and desktop notifications, but when I up-arrow from where it indicates there are desktop notifications instead of hearing the word “E-mail,” I hear the word “off.” I don’t know why this is so, and when I try to turn notifications on nothing seems to be working, so I have for the moment just gone back to using Outlook calendar which I am more comfortable and familiar with. If you can receive e-mail Google calendar notifications I do not know how to access them. But in answer to your questions, I am very familiar with Outlook calendar and I am trying to use Google calendar from the web. I am using the latest JAWS beta version and Windows 10.
