Re: Editing signature Outlook2016 JAWS2019


 

For me using Office 365 I go to File > Options > Mail category and then I tab to the button "Signatures..." and activate it.
It puts me immediately on the OK button, if you tab forward you go to Cancel, than the email signatures tab, then the list of signatures, after that you have buttons for "New", "Delete" and "Rename", after that the drop-down fields where you select the signature you want for new messages and replys.
After that you have Font, font size and so on, eventually you get to a "Picture" and "Hyperlink" button and one tab after Hyperlink you are in the edit field.
Alternatively, you can simply press Shift+Tab once when you are on the OK button and that takes you into the edit field.
Now, for me when I just tried it the first time I arrived in the edit field either by tabbing forward or pressing Shift+Tab, I could not review the text of my signature. However, if I pressed tab and then once I was in the edit field I pressed it once more to get to OK and then pressed Shift+Tab to go back then I cou;ld review and edit the signature. Similarly if I pressed Shift+Tab right away I could not review the text, but pressing Shift+Tab once more to the "Hyperlink" button and then pressing tab again to go forward into the edit box I could then review and change the text.
I know this sounds complicated and I don't know why it doesn't work the first time you get to the edit field regardless whether it's by pressing tab a lot of Shift+Tab once I don't know, but this is how it works for me.

Your instructions work well for me until I get to the shift/tab. I don't find an edit box.

Alt+f=file,
T=options,
M=mail,
Alt+n=signature, press enter,
here you land on ok button, shift+tab you land on the edit button, you can edit here, make sure you then enter on the ok button.

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

Have you tried to tab once or twice past the edit field for the signature and then Shift+Ta back into it? At one point this worked for me, I checked it right now and for me Jaws 2019 reads the text of my signature, but I am using Office 365.

Hello Sieghard,
I forgot to mention that this is on the retail version of Outlook2016.

Hello,
I am using JAWS 2019 on a Windows 10 machine and I am trying to edit
my signature in Outlook2016. I find that although I can select the
signature to edit, the text is not readable by JAWS.
Has anyone else noticed this behavior and have a work around? I am
sure that I can delete and create a new signature but as it is one
item that I need to correct this seems like a hassle and not something I should need to do.
Thank you in advance for any responses
