Hi,

 

JAWS Keey+Tab doesn’t work for me in outlook 2016, all it reads to me is the current message as if I’d pressed an arrow key.

Actually, Jaws Key+Tab should do it, Jaws Key+Page Down will tell you how many messages you have in your Inbox or mailbox where you are, but it won’t tell you which one you are on. Here is an example, this is the Inbox of the mail account I use for the Viphone list, this is what I get with Jaws Key+NumPad Page Down:

 

Items in View 4

Unread Items in View 1

Progress All folders are up to date.

Connectivity to your server. Connected to: Microsoft Exchange

Zoom 100%

 

Now if I actually arrow down that list there are only 3 lines/items, but one is a conversation with two messages, actually, this one, Tom’s question and Mike’s message, Outlook gives you total number of messages including those in collapsed conversations.

 

Now, here is Jaws speech history if I go to the very bottom of my Inbox, on Message 4 so to tspeak:

Hi Tom,

 

Try the keystroke, Insert / Jaws key + Page down, to read the status line to see if that'll getter done.

 

Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!

Hi,

Using: Latest Jaws 2018, W10 Home 64 bit, Outlook 13

 

Is there a Jaws  command which will read  the current message number and or the total number of messages  being displayed in the Outlook 2013 inbox?

 

Thanks

Tom
