Viewing multiple calendars in Outlook 2013 with NVDA 2018.2.1


Walker, Michael E
 

Hi,

 

Is there a best practice for being able to view four or five Outlook calendars at once, when I need to schedule a meeting? I have not found anything in NVDA’s user guide. Sometimes, when I view someone else’s calendar in Outlook, there is a major lag. Also, I am not familiar with how to best use the scheduling assistant, or if it is accessible.

 

Thank you,

Mike

I generally just use the scheduling assistant, enter the names of the people invited to the meeting, and it shows whether they’re available or have conflicts. I then move the starting time of the meeting around until it works.

Hi Jason,

 

Upon trying your suggestion, when I moved the start time around, it said I was free, but no information for the other attendees.

 

Thanks,

Mike

The way I tend to schedule meetings is:
1. Create a new appointment in the calendar, (ex. control-n from the
calendar view)
2. Use "alt-h i" key sequence to add invitees
3. enter the invitees in the to field
4. Use f6 once to move to the meeting scheduling pane.
5. Use tab 3 times to get to the ""suggested times" list
6. Then arrow up/down through the suggested times until I find the one
I like best
(optional_ 6B. Tab one more time to get to the calendar/date picker
and left or right arrow to try a different day, then shift-tab back to
step 6.
7. shift-f6 to move focus back to the meeting pane

and fill in location subject, etc...

Hope that helps. It is more manual than the scheduling assistant but
feels more accessible to me.

Thank you, Mike.

How do you tell when someone is out of the office? I sent my meeting notice, to get an OOO autoreply from the essential person who needs to attend.

Thanks,
Mike

I rely on everyone marking their calendar as out, not just having an autoreply email.

Yep, and if it is a large number of people I am scheduling a meeting with, I borrow some eyes.
