While in Outlook, Press alt+f then t for options.

Arrow down once to mail and start tabbing.

My guess is that the desktop message or whatever it is called got checked, and possibly other things in there.

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.
