Many times. They say they can't reproduce it.

I had the jumping around problem for ages, regardless of whether there was a touchpad or not, turned off turned on it doesn't seem to matter.

Good point about the touchpad on laptops. Mine is also turned off.
However some laptops also have a touchstick, located between the F, G,
V, and B keys. This also can be touched accidentally if it's not
disabled. I'm mentioning this for anyone with a laptop to be aware.

David:



My mousepad is turned off, and has always been turned off since I
started using this particular laptop, and I still occasionally
experience the typing focus problem in Outlook
2016 when composing an e-mail.



I haven’t been able to identify a pattern regarding the occurrence of
the problem; it just seems to occur randomly for no apparent reason.



I’m using Windows 7 and Jaws 17 here.

Good morning;

Here's a silly question, regarding the behavior you're experiencing,

Do you have the mousepad turned off?

If you're using a laptop?

I'm using both jaws 17&18, windows 10, office 2016, and mousepad is
turned off, I have never experienced this behavior.



Merry Xmas to all.



Enjoy the Holiday's.

I don’t think it’s exclusive to outlook 2010 or jaws 18. I have jaws
17 and using outlook 2016, and I have that focus issue as well.

I’m typing in an email, whatever I wrote at the end, or the middle,
for example, I find it at the top of the email some times, or
somewhere else other than where it should be. It began just recently,
so I just compose my emails from word and send it that way, since that
doesn’t occur in word..

Subject: Recent Jaws issue with typing and focus jumping around



Hello list,

So I don’t know what I may have done, but for the last few days, I
have been experiencing an incredibly annoying issue with Jaws and
composing Outlook messages.

When I begin to type, the first few letters are spoken by jaws even
though I’ve always had this setting to echo speech off. The more
frustrating thing is that focus will jump around and what I type is
spread out all over the document.
This is especially annoying when I’m working off a template text and
have to go hunt for the stray letters.

The thing is, if I type the first couple of letters and then erase
them, everything works fine.

I have to believe that in all my typing, I must have accidentally
enabled some sort of odd setting since this has only been a recent
issue and I don’t experience it in a standard Word document. Only in
Outlook messages. My version of Outlook is 2010 and my messages are
set to HTML. I am using the most recent version of Jaws 18.

Does anyone have an idea of what may be causing this issue or what
setting I might try to change to fix it? That or is there some sort of
set to default setting in Outlook for composing messages?

Thanks,
