Hi again Meela,
Sorry, I also meant to say that you can press left-shift + numpad slash (2nd
key in from the top right on the num-pad) to get to the task bar.

Ian.

Hi Meela,
When in Outlook, press caps lock and F1 to bring up Supernova's context
specific Help options.
Cursor down for the various help topics.
The first topic is SuperNova's hotkeys. Right-arrow in to its subsection
list. If you cursor up and down this list you will find a number of sections
for various Dolphin cursor mode operations.

Back in the main Help topics list, there is a SuperNova manual option. Press
enter on this to get into the manual. Cursor down to find a section on
Dolphin Cursor, right-arrow into the various subsections.

Happy reading! <smile>

HTH.
Ian.

Thanks for this Ian, I have looked at this and it is brilliant.  Can you
direct me to a specific manual or section to read about the Dolphin cursor
as I would like to learn as much as possible about it immediately as I see
how powerful it is indeed.  Can I for instance go to the task bar with it?

Hi Meela,
Use the num-pad minus key (top right-hand key on the num-pad) to toggle
between Dolphin cursor mode and normal mode.
You need to look at Dolphin's help manual to understand this mode, but it
enables you to move round the screen without moving the Windows cursor.
There are a great number of operations you can do under Dolphin cursor mode
which makes the Supernova screen reader very powerful.

HTH.
Ian.

Ian, I do not know what you mean by Dolphin cursor, perhaps you would tell
me just what keys you hit on the keyboard once in the To field and then I
can emulate the rest you say below.  Thanks.

Hi Meela,
I too use Supernova. I can change the account by going into Dolphin cursor,
but first I have to back tab out of the message edit area back into the To
and CC area of the screen. I can then go into Dolphin cursor mode, cursor up
the screen up to the Account button, press the space bar to activate the
drop-down list, select the required sending account, press enter, then tab
back into the edit area if I want to write something more.

No idea why Outlook 2003 doesn't show a From field, and I can't find any way
of getting a BCC (blind carbon copy) field either.
Anyone else got any ideas about the BCC field?

Thanks and regards, Ian.

Hi All, I have more than one e-mail account.  When I want to send from Neela
or another account in Outlook 2003, the only way I can get to this is
visually by clicking on Accounts button.  Yet I had a visually impaired IT
expert look at this for me and as he was dependent on screen reader and no
magnification he was not able to access this Accounts button.  I use
Supernova but this IT Technican used a variety of screen readers with speech
only and none of them could access this Accounts button.  Now let me make
myself clear I am not talking about setting up accounts, I am talking about
being in an Inbox and there is no From field so whichever account I am in
the e-mail will still send from the default account unless I go to this
Accounts button and in the dropdown box choose the appropriate account.  I
am very surprised that this is an access issue in Outlook 2003.  Any ideas
please as to why Outlook 2003 does not show a From field?
