Try this.

Press Windows key and then I.

You should hear Settings.

Tab once to System.

Press enter.

Tab once and then arrow down to Notifications and Actions.

Press enter.  You will see many apps with buttons you can press the space bar to toggle.

One of these should be outlook.  My guess is that by default, it is on.

When you hear Outlook button on, press the space bar to toggle it off.

Then alt f 4 to exit from settings.

This should fix your problem.

Subject: E-Mails are Interrupting Me


Dear Listers:


Yesterday my technician, while working on my computer, accidentally did something which has caused JAWS to read aloud an e-mail message every time it comes in, regardless of whether I am in Microsoft Outlook or not.  I may be writing a letter or addressing an envelope, and all of a sudden JAWS starts reading an e-mail message to me aloud and interrupting whatever I am doing.  Is there a way I can stop JAWS from doing this?  Microsoft Outlook is my e-mail carrier.  I am using Windows 10 and the latest update of JAWS 2020.


Thank you all for any help or advice you can give.
