If you have a keypad on your computer, shift plus the + on the keypad. That will allow you to get to the touch. Arrow until we hear focus or other. Press on the one you want.
Hope this helps,

There is an area above the list of messages which contains options for it. I've got a search facility, ways to sort the list of messages, and the Focused and Other buttons when I'm in Focused Inbox, or All and Unread when I'm not in Focused Inbox.

From my Inbox list of messages I can Tab into this area. I have to Tab four times to get to the Focused button, and once more for the Other button. But if I keep Tabbing, I never return to the Inbox list of messages, which is weird. I either have to choose an option and press Enter, or press Escape to get back to my list of messages.

I found that you can move a message from "focused" to "other" using an
option in the context menu. However, I'm still not sure what the quickest
way is to move to the buttons that switch between the "focused" and "other"
messages in the inbox.

Other than that, I haven't encountered any problems so far.

Can't really help except to say I found Focused inbox annoying in terms of
working with JAWS.

Subject: Focused inbox in Microsoft Outlook for Windows

I'm trying to manage my mail better by invoking the "focused inbox" option
in Outlook for Windows (the latest version installed from Office 365).

After turning on Focused Inbox within the View tab, what's the easiest way
to switch between the "focused" and "other" inboxes, and to move messages
between the two?

Focused Inbox works well under Microsoft Outlook for iOS, but it isn't
obvious how to use it with JAWS (or any other screen reader) under Windows.
So, hints would be welcome from those who have been there already.
