Subject: Re: Office365Outlook and auto fill
Outlook only suggests addresses you have send to recently. By Recently, I mean since the last time the autocomplete list was cleared. If you type a K and only hear one or two suggestions, type a bit more than hit Control K for Outlook to show you all possible contacts that contain those letters. Some people prefer to Tab back to the To button and use that dialog box to populate the address field, but I tend to use the Control K method. There was a recent thread on this list with other furstrations related to this. I find that the way Outlook does autocomplete now is too finicky. Someone had an explanation for it, but still didn’t’ make sense to me. I might find that typing “SM” might show me a Kelly Smith in my contacts, but typing “SMI” Does not. It’s like I have to type one letter and a time and wait after each to se what Outlook suggests before moving on to the next letter. That’ probably works fine for sighted users, but feels very tedious to me when waiting for JAWS to read it out.
Hello, I’m using Office365 with Outlook Microsoft Outlook Subscription Version 16.0.11328.20644 and I cannot get the address auto fill to work. This is when sending emails.
I know for example I’ve quite a few contacts that start with “K,” yet when I type that letter, if I’m lucky I get two possible entries. That is just one example. I’m tried the latest version of JAWS2020 and I’m also trying with JAWS2021 including the latest BETA.
Version 2021.2011.16 ILM
What am I missing? Are we still having this issue in general?
