moderated 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:

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

 

I am sending a “cc,” 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.
