Hi Tom and all,
Tom, I think the new feature in Jaws 2020 is to announce Groups as you arrow down. This information comes from the Help menu in Jaws under “What’s New in Jaws”. First of all as others have said the view to group messages by date must be enabled. Then press Insert + V to open quick settings. Type “announce” in the edit box. Arrow down to the Announce Group Change In Lists item. Press the spacebar to select the checkbox. Tab to OK and press enter. Now when you arrow down through the list when the group changes from Today to Yesterday, Last Week etc. you will hear the change.

I think Bill answered the question Tom.
Take care, Takis
Takis and all:
You are correct in that alt v a b w is a toggle with checks and unchecks the groups option.
However, when I check the groups option, my messages are still not separated by date groupings. They are arranged chronologically by date, but date groupings still do not show. At the top of the list view is a message that says “group by expanded flag star date no date expanded. I’m not quite sure what this means.
A quick way of doing that, courtesy of one of our members, is: Within outlook and ribbons unchecked: alt-v, a, b, w. I wanted the reverse, i.e. abolish the grouping announcement, however the command is a toggle I think. So Tom, just give it a chance and I believe this is what you need.
I just installed the latest Jaws 2020 update on this Windows 10 computer.
I’m using Outlook e-mail in Microsoft 365.
In the list of improvements with this update, I know Jaws will now group messages according to date, which could be quite convenient when sorting through a large folder list view.
Here’s what the update notes say:
“JAWS can now indicate group changes, such as dates or conversations, as you navigate through message lists. For example, if your Outlook view settings
I checked the “announce group change” option, but my messages still do not appear to be grouped by date.
Am I missing a step here?
