Re: Problem with New JAWS v16.0.4463 and Outlook 2010

Regrettably, I have similar problems. I had to go back and install the
previous JAWS version to be able to review this email thread and be allowed
to use the enter key to get into this email message and respond to this

I will be writing a note to the Freedom Scientific technical support team
and hope they may be able to help out.

Thanks for everyone's continued help with this issue.

It is not a problem with the Outlook window being minimized. The behavior is
the same whether the window is maximized or "restored".

I also played around with the "Customize Outlook Message List" JAWS manager,
a very cool little tool that I hadn't heard of before, and again no luck.
Regardless of how I configured this, I still got the same incorrect

But I finally figured out a workaround. In the "View" tab of the ribbon UI,
I have to uncheck "Show as Conversation". Once I do that, everything reads
correctly. But if I have that checked, then nothing is read as I arrow down
through my message list. This is not an ideal workaround, as I rather like
to have messages grouped by conversation, but at least I can access my email

I guess my next thing to try would be to completely uninstall JAWS including
my own custom settings, then reinstall, and see if that resolves this issue.
After all, no one else is encountering this problem, so it must be something
specific to my system.

Thanks, all. I consider this closed, and J Bron can go ahead and hijack this
thread now if he wants to. <grin>

This behavior reminds me of the times I've somehow minimalized Outlook
2010. If this is the problem, the solution is to focus on the Outlook
press alt-space, then x for maximize.

For what it's worth, even though the problem arose after installation
of a JAWS update and this action apparently caused the change, it
doesn't sound like a JAWS issue.
