Re: email addresses using Outlook 2016
I use Office 365 and it’s not an issue on any of my machines.

Just updated. And … That damn email address announcement bug is still there.
Good God. Off to let Vispero know. Again.

I haven’t had time to run the install on the latest update, but hopefully can get around to doing it tonight.
This particular email address issue is present on both my Windows 10 machines. Running a stand-alone Office 2016 license on both computers.
Hopefully, after I update and reboot, this will all be moot.
Granted I am on a Jaws Beta built, but the auto-suggest feature has worked for me now consistently for many month and while you may not have the official April update (or May update since we are almost in May), this definitely worked for the March update and the February update. Here is an example, I start a new email and type the letter “j”:
JAWS Private Beta Group.
JAWSBETA@.... (Recent People).
As soon as I typed the “J” it read me out the address for the Jaws list, then I simply arrowed down through the other suggestions.
This is a known bug that is still frustratingly present for some of us Jaws 2019 and Office 2016 users.
Every time a new JFW update comes out, I report it and it’s acknowledged and am told that Vispero’s working on a fix. I think the last message I got that hopefully it would finally be addressed with the next Jaws update was back in March of this year. Who knows.
Anyway, one partial workaround is to execute the alt+K command after typing out a few letters of an email address. You’ll then be taken to a list of emails where you can choose from. This won’t work if you don’t have that particular email saved in your address book though.
I use JAWS 2019 and MS 2016 and still get the suggestions when I type the first letter. Sounds like a setting has changed in your Outlook. At times my settings have changed due to updates.
I’m using Outlook 2016 and Jaws 2019. When I was using Jaws 2018 I would create an email. I would be on the to line, type in a character and would get a list of email addresses that begin with that character. Now using jaws 2019 the list doesn’t exist. Is the list in a Jaws file? Thanks, Kevin
