OK, a bit of explanation.
Contacts are kept in two places in Outlook. One is your own contacts which you may have added, and the other is a history of the people you have recently written to, thus Recent People, or History if you like.
So if you have written to me previously, but not added me to your contacts and you try to write to me again, you start typing the word Steve and because you wrote to me before, I am in your Recent People list, but not in your main contacts.
So as soon as you type “ste” for example, all of the recent people will come up and you can arrow down to the one you want, if indeed you want one. If you don’t, just carry on typing.
I hope this helps.
All the best

Subject: Outlook and JAWS talking about Recent People
Running Outlook 2021 with JAWS 2022, I’ve occasionally been composing emails when JAWS Will rattle off a name from my contacts and say “Recent People”. It does not seem to be a consistent problem, but I cannot figure out the trigger. Anyone seen this and have an idea why this is happening?
