moderated Outlook address book questions

Madison Martin
 

Hi all,
Can anyone tell me what the difference (s) is between the Outlook addressbook
and Contacts? Also, how do I get to the addressbook in Outlook? Also, why do
some addresses go to addressbook and not contacts? Sorry, I've only ever used
Contacts, I've never used the addressbook, I honestly always assumed/thought
that they were the same thing, but apparently not. I'm running Outlook 2013,
Jaws 2018 and Windows 10 version 1909. Look forward to any help/info anyone can
provide me! Thanks Madison

Just use the custom label option in jaws. insert plus the number to then scroll down to custom labels while focuses on the control you want to label then you label it and repeat as needed.

moderated Re: Fill in form within a PDF

 

If the form is a fillable PDF, then you can fill it out in most PDF readers.  If it's not, you can't.

Even converted over into MS-Word will not make it a fillable form, per se, though it would make it possible to type things after the various labels.

If the company doesn't issue this as a fillable PDF form, I would contact them asking what they would prefer you do.  A lot of entities create what amount to printable electronic forms, meant to be printed and filled out by hand, which is no better than real paper forms.  Some are not even aware (which is a shock at this point in time) that fillable forms can be created in PDF format.  Virtually every IRS form you can download in PDF format is a fillable form that allows saving after you've filled it out.

Hi,
The only thing that I can suggest would be for you to ask them to send the form in a Microsoft Word file instead of a PDF file. I have done that with places before, and they were gracious enough to go ahead and send it to me that way. Otherwise, I am unsure, but I hope someone else has another answer so that I can learn as well.

moderated Re: Where would those settings be?

 

Just as an aside, one of the very best things that came about in settings under Windows 10 is the search feature, which works brilliantly.

You need not enter the exact term that Microsoft uses for a given setting, either, as they've implemented "fuzzy searching."

I virtually always enter a word or two in the Settings Search box when I'm trying to get to one I don't deal with routinely.  One of the search results, and most often it's even obvious which one, is what I'm looking for in most cases.  It saves a ton of frustration.

This will give you a list of four items The top one is Speech Tab over

Here you can turn on dictation and make other selections.
There are other options which you can access from this screen or under the “Time & Language” area in settings. This also has a ”speech” settings area.

You can leave dictation on or allow for sleep until you call for it.

moderated Re: Outlook contacts question

 

When you are in the email text field and press Shift + Tab once, your screenreader will say "Email" or maybe "Email Index". If you activate this button you can arrow down and select "email 2" and "email 3", if you arrow again it goes back to "email" which basically is the main email. If you have one email address already entered and do this, press enter on email 2 and tab you are again in a blank email field and you can enter a seccond email for this contact, then repeat with a third email if you want. I don't know how you can add more than these 3, I have never seen a way to do 5 as brian suggested.

Hi all,
I have a couple of contacts that have multiple email addresses, and I'm wondering, is there a way to have multiple email addresses in the same contact, or do I have to create a separate contact for each email address? I'm using Outlook 2013, Jaws 2018 and Windows 10 version 1909. Look forward to any ideas/suggestions that anyone can provide!! Thanks Madison

Because Outlook is perverse in the way it stores contacts.

For the Google Contacts that I just Synced to Outlook, all appear in Address Book but none appear in Contacts.  And don't ask me to explain why, as I really do not know, as I haven't used Outlook as an email client on a daily basis in years but have it so that I can do quick testing (like now) when I need to.

If someone else can give a clear explanation of the Contacts versus Address Book split under Outlook I'd love to hear it.

Tom,

           Just as an FYI I have two Gmail accounts running under Outlook, but am only syncing the Contacts from one of the two to Outlook Contacts/Address Book.  I can use the synchronized contacts in Outlook Contacts/Address Book when composing new messages from either account.

           And I just added a contact on the Google side that I know was brand new.  After I ran the sync it was in Outlook Contacts/Address Book and able to be used for new email messages no matter which account has focus when I start a new message.

The email selection button isn’t in the Address Book. It’s in Contact form.

Madison,

            It expects you to enter the e-mail address, e.g., blah@....  If you don't know what the other e-mail address was, either search your e-mail for a message from that person to snag it from or contact them to get it again.  You clearly still have the address you're trying to enter in Address Book, or you wouldn't be getting the error message you are, and if you want it in Contacts and not Address Book it's going to have to come out of Address Book first.

            I'm really confused as to why you'd have the same contact information in both Contacts and Address book.  It is typically in one, the other, but not both.  I can never remember whether it's Contacts under Outlook that is shared across all defined accounts or Address Book.

I put in the email address. I’ve only ever used contacts, I’ve never used the address book, so why would it be in address book when I’ve never used it?

Madison,

I believe you have to create a separate contact for each Outlook e-mail
address.

At least this is what I do, and it seems to work fine. For any additional
e-mail addresses, I simply add something to the person's name so that I know
which address is which.

Hi all,
I have a couple of contacts that have multiple email addresses, and I'm
wondering, is there a way to have multiple email addresses in the same
contact, or do I have to create a separate contact for each email address?
I'm using Outlook 2013, Jaws 2018 and Windows 10 version 1909. Look forward
to any ideas/suggestions that anyone can provide!! Thanks Madison

Hi again Brian,

I just tried that, and I was told that an Outlook addressbook entry can’t be used as an email address in a contact, what do I do? I’ve already removed the person’s other email address from my contacts.

Madison,

         The button ahead of the e-mail address is a split button where the first entry is just, "Email."  If you want subsequent addresses gain focus on the split part of that split button, expand it, pick Email 2, then you have a separate entry to put in the second email address.  Lather, rinse, repeat for subsequent email addresses.

          Note, if you wish to have the "Display As" for each email be different, e.g., "Carly Watson - Work," and, "Carly Watson - Personal," then be sure to edit the Display As field right after you enter the e-mail address for whatever email address entry number you're working on before you move on to the next one for that person.

           A similar situation exists for physical addresses, too.  That button is a split button and allows the entry of Home, Business, and Other addresses within a single contact.
