moderated P.S. RE: How do I read info bar in Outlook?
Van Lant, Robin
P.S. I just tried again with the Convenient OCR Window virtualization and was able to read the line, but still wonder if the JAWS cursor should be able to access the text more directly. It would also be nice if I knew that the alert was there. I think Window-Eyes had some way of alerting us when the message appears, but the memory is fuzzy now.

Subject: How do I read info bar in Outlook?
I need some guidance. I’m using JAWS 2020 on Windows 10 with Microsoft Outlook Subscription Version 16.0.11929.20966.
Here at work, if you begin to compose a message to someone who is running an autoreply, an alert with the text of that autoreply will appear. An AIRA agent confirmed that it appears as a line below the ribbon and just above the line where the From button and my email address appear. I tried to use the JAWS cursor to read the text, but it seems to skip over this line and all the ribbon information. Here is my speech history for this new message:
Untitled - Message (HTML)
I tried using Convenient OCR to virtualize the screen, but did not gain any new text. What else can I do to read this line of text? Are there settings for the JAWS cursor I need to change or is there another way?
