moderated Re: Connect Outlook to Word


When you're in outlook and want to open an attachment in word, press the
Insert key and A (the insert key on the "six pack". That takes you directly
to the attachment. Shift-tabbing does not work for me but this does.

I believe Outlook uses Word to process text. So when you create a message,
Word is the editor. If you want to send a Word file, follow the
instructions from previous posts. If you want to open an attachment in
Word, shift-tab from the message and you should be on the title of the
attachment. Press enter to open it, or good old ctrl+c to copy it in order
to paste it into your documents or other folder. There are free FS webinars
on using Outlook, and others on JAWS with Word. NVDA for about $20 has an
excellent textbook on Outlook, as well as another on Word.

To get to the FS webinar page,
1. press insert+j to get to the JAWS page.
2. Press alt+h (help).
3. Press 'r' (resources).
4. Press 'w' (webinars).
5. Find the link to archived webinars and explore/download the treasures
