This works for Outlook 13 and so will use this method in future.

In Ourtlook for me it does almost the same, a say line also speaks the number of the message I am on, just now when I did a say line it read your message, sender, subject etc. and then at the end it said “13 of 15”.
The only difference with Jaws+Tab is that is says “List box” before it starts speaking your name, the subject and all that.
JAWS+Tab just does effectively a Say Line for me.
All the best
Make sure your Window is maximized, I am using OUtlook 2016 and both Jaws Key+Tab and Jaws Key+Page Down work and say what they are supposed to say.
Thanks for your reply Steve.
Under Outlook 2013, all I get when pressing insert numpad page down is Jaws saying something about filter applied. Pressing insert Tab does give the number of the current message as well as the total number of messages. Maybe Outlook 13 works differently from version 16.
Try reading the status bar, with JAWS Key+Page Down on the number pad.
All the best
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?
