Chris,

           Then what I'd suggest is checking whether those things that are announced as "Other suggestion" might actually be in your Contacts/Address book.  Things that are resident there will never be easily purged from autocomplete unless they are first purged from contacts.

           This can be insanity making when, in cases like Gmail, they create a "behind the scenes" category of Contacts where anyone you've ever sent or received a message from that you didn't mark as spam gets added to the "All Contacts" category, which most people have no idea exists.  If this is being synced into Outlook (but not vice versa) things can get even more insane.

You don't, at least if it's not an optional update.

People need to accept that, occasionally, even perfect updates (when we're talking about the whole embedded base of users) will "burp" when installing on a given machine.  Who knows why and, when it's on a statistically insignificant number, who cares?

Very often uninstalling then promptly reinstalling actually fixes the problem.  Or just uninstalling and waiting for Windows Update to fetch that update again, or a cumulative update that follows it.

This is a normal, and typical, part of owning a computer and has been for decades.  It just happens every once in a blue moon for any given user.  Knowing how to roll back, and then either intentionally reapplying or just sitting back and waiting, without nail-biting, is the way to go.

When there are genuinely bad updates these "make the press" and these days, with OS telemetry, tend to get stopped in their tracks long before any but the few poor souls who happen to be in the very earliest cohort(s) have been affected.  That's cold comfort to them, but it also points out why having an external backup drive and a backup protocol you follow on a regular cycle is a basic element of computer ownership if you value your data and not having to reconfigure Windows from scratch in the event of a catastrophic failure from any of a number of causes.  If you don't take backups you will, at some point, lose everything.  And I can say that from personal experience (which is what made me wise up and begin backing up) and much professional observation.  It may be only once in a lifetime, but . . .

Hi Brian,

 

Oops, yes. You are right since there is one drop-down only. However, this list is filled with two types of items: so-called “recent suggestions” and “other suggestions”. When you select an item, you are informed about its type by hearing what your screen reader says at end of it. You can either hear “(Recent suggestion)” or “(Other suggestion)”. After some try&fail attempts, I noticed that if I press the delete key on an item at end of which Jaws says “(Recent suggestion)”, this item is removed from the autocompletion list. However, if I press the delete kay on an item at end of which Jaws says “(Other suggestion)”, the item is not removed.

 

Hope my explanation makes sense. Have a nice day. Chris D

In all probability the OK button will take you into a dialog where you can accept or reject something, or act as a permanent dismissal of the thing you're seeing if it acts as the acknowledgement that you've seen it (and that's often the case for announcements - where the Not Now button serves as a "show me this again later" option).

But not knowing precisely what you're dealing with here I cannot state the above with certainty.   A screen shot or knowing the actual message text of the thing would help immensely in identifying what it is and why it's happening.

Hi Brian,

 

Many thanks for your help. In fact, it works sometimes also on my system but not always. I must admit I was misled by those two lists, namely “Recent suggestions” and “Other suggestions”.

 

In the article pointed to by Sieghard earlier in this thread, it is mentioned that you can only delete “recent suggestions”, not “other suggestions”.

 

So, sometimes, the trick is to press enough letters for the address I want to delete to appear as a “recent suggestion” instead of “other suggestions”. Sometimes, it works but sometimes, although I type enough letters for the popup to contain less than 5 items, all of them belong to “other suggestions” and therefore, I cannot delete any of them.

 

So, here is my new question: Is there a reliable way to let an address appear as “recent suggestion” rather than “other suggestion”? Or is there an alternative accessible way to remove an “other suggestion” without needing to erase the whole list of suggestions please?

 

Many thanks and sorry for my misleading. Have a nice day. Chris D

I have someone for whom I've done custom scripting work write to me over the last several days saying the scripts that had been fine for well over a year now suddenly stopped working.  The version where they stopped working:  Microsoft Outlook Subscription Version 16.0.12527.20242

Rolling back to Microsoft Outlook Subscription Version 16.0.12527.20194 brought 'em back to life.

I have actual, locally installed, Office 2016 which includes Outlook.  Office 365, while sharing a lot of DNA with Office 2016 and 2019, is still a different animal that could have different bugs introduced.

When I go into the File Tab, Office Account Tab, and look under About Outlook it says that it's on Version 2002 (Build 12527.20242 Click-to-Run).  My Office is Office Professional Plus 2016.

Hi George,

 

Here is what happens in the Outlook 365 app when I try to apply your advice:

 

  1. I opened a new message to perform the test by pressing <ctrl+n>.
  2. In the “To:” field of this message, I typed the first letters of an address I want to remove. I then heard a small jingle and the suggestion list was popped up.
  3. Since the address I wanted to delete was not the first one suggested, I down arrowad to it and typed <enter>.
  4. For sure, this address has been added to the “To:” field. Therefore, I typed the left arrow until Jaws said me it has been selected.
  5. At this time, when I pressed the <delete> key, this address was removed from my “To:” field.
  6. After also removing the remaining semicolon and extra space character from the “To:” field, I retyped the first letters I typed at step (2).
  7. I then arrowed down and noticed that although the address was removed from the “To:” field at step (5), it still remains in the suggested list.

I’d also like to thank the people who suggested me to remove these unwanted addresses from some address book but it seems that these addresses do not belong to any of my address books.

 

Many thanks. Have a nice day. Chris D

Hi Adrian, Thom and all,

 

Thanks to all for your fast responses. So, since it works for yyou, I tried with different screen readers, in case it could be a problem with my jaws configuration.

 

Neither NVDA, nor the windows 10 narrator could solve my problem. Here is an illustration of what I am trying to do:

 

  1. I create a new mail by pressing <ctrl+n>.
  2. In the “To:” field, I begin typing the first letters of the address I want to remove.
  3. I press the down or up arrow keys one or more times until the screen reader speaks me the address I want. For Jaws or NVDA, which have braille support, I also can read the suggestion on my braille display.
  4. If I press the <delete> key, the suggested address disappears from my braille display and only the letters I typed remain in the “To:” field. However, when I arrow up and down to see more suggested addresses, the one I hoped to remove by pressing <delete> while the screen reader was saying it still appears.

So, is there an outlook configuration setting to change for this to work for me like it does for you please?

 

Many thanks. Have a nice day. Chris D

In Outlook 2016, the method that works for me is to set up a new message, then type the first letter of the email address I want to delete. I arrow down through the resulting list and, when I have focus on the address, I press the delete key.

Hi all,

 

With Jaws 2020, I’d like to know whether there is a way to remove one or more items from the address autocompletion list of Microsoft Outlook 365.

 

With older Outlook versions like 2010, and older versions of Jaws, I could select one no more wanted address and type the <delete> key instead of the <tab> key and it was removed from the autocompletion list. But now, this does not seem to work with the Outlook 2016 app which was installed by my subscription to Office 365, and Jaws version 2020.2001.70.

 

Many thanks in advance for any advice. Have a nice day. Chris D

Hi Brian,

 

Many thanks for this point. Of course, such a user error is easy to make. Therefore, I double-checked whether I pressed the <delete> key and not the <backspace> key.

 

In fact, my desktop keyboard has two <delete> key. The most useful <delete> key, sometimes referred to as <extended pad delete> is placed on the 6-key pad, just above the arrow keys forming a T with its bar upside instead of downside. The second <delete> key, sometimes referred to <numpad delete> or <numpad .> is right next to the <numpad insert> key. When <numlock> is off, it performs the delete operation and when <numpad> is on, it enters a period.

 

Although I prefer the <extended pad delete>, during my attempts, I tried both <delete> keys and not the <backspace> key without luck.

 

My PC is also running windows 10 Entreprise Edition 64-bit although I can’t precisely determine the version number of windows 10 since it is quite new for me. I tried the previously explained attempts three times with three different screen readers: Jaws 2020 version 2020.2001.70, NVDA version 2019.3, and the windows 10 narrator.

 

Many thanks. Have a nice day. Chris D

Hi Brian,

 

Yes, this does in fact work, I must, to my shame, admit that last night when I tried it I actually backspaced instead of pressing delete after typing a letter.

I am using Office 365 with Jaws 2020 on a Windows 10 computer and when I just tried it again by typing the letter “B” I had a couple of addresses pop, among others, an old address I used to communicate with somebody at a Bed Bath and Beyond store about a return a few years ago. After I came across this one I pressed delete and it disappeared. I then closed the compose window and then started a new email, now when I typed B I had other addresses pop up which I also had before, but the Bed Bath and Beyond address was indeed gone.

All I need to do, as Cher noted, is arrow down through the autocomplete list that pops up after I've typed a character or two to limit the list, and hit the Delete key on any item I land on that I want eliminated from the autocomplete list.   They disappear immediately, and if I open another compose window and start entering the same character(s) in the To, CC, or BCC fields those addresses that I deleted remain gone.

I figured out that the contacts list has to be in focus before issuing the alt+h, c, v shortcut, otherwise it won't work.

anyway, the current view was set to people, so I changed it to list, and no more presence unknown in the contacts.

ALT+H,CV   Home Ribbon, Current View Group.   I'd imagine the name of
the current view will be announced, as NVDA announces it's in a list and
that list view is selected.  There are, of course, other views in that
list that could be selected, and if he's got another in use, that's what
will be announced.

Yes, deletion does not work here either.

The JAWS curser was already on for all applications.

Try holding down the, Insert key, and tapping the, Z key, twice quickly.  You want to hear, the Jaws cursor will be turned on for all applications  If you hear that the Jaws cursor will be turned off for all applications, do this keystroke again until it's reported turned on for all applications.  Let the list know what happens. It might be tricky, but I think we're closing in on the bugger!  LOL

Mike,  I opened up an email that I had sent out that had a date in a line that JAWS was not reading.  I then pressed the JAWS key and Space bar and Z.  A second later, JAWS was reading the missing line of text.  Now, how do I figure out which custom setting is causing the problem? Weird!

Here's another thought / guess.  Did you make any changes to the Jaws default dictionary in Jaws 18 that might cause this problem?  If you did something to the JFD in Jaws18, that would have carried over to Jaws2019 if you imported your settings from J18 to J2019.

I am using JAWS 2019, Windows 7 and office 2007 and Windows Live Mail.  Each time that I type a date like March 22 in a word document or an email, JAWS will not read anything in that line of text where the date is.  It doesn't say anything at all.  This has been happening for a while, it even happened with JAWS 18.  Has anyone else experienced this?

How about using the manage applications settings from within Jaws?

HTH,

Marty,

I guess the way to start is by removing modified settings files from the ENU
folder 1 at a time until you you find the 1 causing the problem. Then open
that file to see if you can pinpoint the particular setting within the file.
Don't delete the files you take out of the ENU folder just cut them out and
save them somewhere you can access them.
