Re: Outlook sound question


Hello; what you could try is, create a sound rule, which will play a sound when you receive messages,


1, open outlook;

2,, Press the applications key, now press the letters S&l,
this will allow you to create new rule,
so, tab press enter on,
create new rule button,
3, now your into step 1 of creating the new rule for sound,
press the en-key on your computer,
now press up arrow until you hear;
Apply rule on messages I receive
now you need to go to next button, alt+n,

4, now your on step 2, this is the conditions,
you don't make change here, just simply press alt+n=nexxt,
you will see the following screen;
Microsoft Outlook
This rule will be applied to every message you receive. Is this correct?
Yes No
you obviously need to choose yes,

5, your now into step 3 applying actions,
press the end-key,
up-arrow until you hear;
play a sound, press spacebar to check this item,
tab once, down arrow, and press enter to go into the browse to find a sound,
now it gets farely tricky, you need to tab until you get to the sshell folder view, which will show a list of sounds,
select your sound,
press enter,
alt+n=next button,
now you will see/hear that your choice of sound has been selected,

tab go to finish button, you will hear your sound and a ok button, press enter.
your sound rule has been created.
now you should hear sounds ok.

let me know if this helps.

The impossible is the untried, Never under estimate the power of a dream.

Hello all,
I have been trying to set sounds on my work outlook account without success. I have verified all of the options within the outlook app and set all of the sound preferences from the control panel/sounds.
I cannot get the reminder for calendar to make a sound as well as it does not pop up in the forefront when an appointment is due.
As well, I do not get a sound when a new email arrives.
I am using Jaws 2018 with windows 10.
Does anyone have any ideas?

It could also be because whoever typed out whatever it is you're trying to read did so with the word processor settings to that foreign language.

The English content has been tagged for the foreign language and JAWS has an option for detecting languages. If you turn language detect off, JAWS will read the English as English and not as a foreign language.

Hi all,
I use Jaws 2018 on a Windows 10 machine and Office 13.
In a couple of word documents, which are in clear English, Jaws reads the contents in a foreign language.
The problem persists even if I copy the same to a new document.
Any idea why this is happening?
Also any work around to get rid of the same? (apart from routing through notepad) Thanking you Best Turab
