When you get the email you want to remove by typing it in the field you need to hit enter to put it in the field.

 

Then you need to left arrow to it is selected or red to you and then hit deleate.

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

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

hey Brian, my friend no longer has the presence unknown issue any more, thanks to you. but he still has the issue regarding the names in his contacts. they are sorted by first middle last name, but they don't appear to be alphabetized in ascending order.

you mentioned how you do it but I don't get it, so I can direct him what to do. can you expand on how you do it?

so, if there is a setting to change the scaling and by doing so,
funkiness can occur, why is the setting there? I would imagine most
users would not expect funky things to happen by changing such an
obscure (and unnecessary?) setting.

There is mixing of locations going on here.  The Settings, System,
Display Pane, Scale and Layout section is where this is found under
Windows 10 (or at least most easily and directly).  If you literally
cannot see the safest thing is to leave scaling at 100%, which is what's
recommended.

There can be all kinds of odd offshoots from having text scaled above
100%, though I have no idea if the "Presence Unknown" bit is one of them.

As to sorting contacts in Outlook 2016, it can be done in the same way
it always has been done.  I sort my contacts on the "File As" field
because I want them to sort in Last Name, First Name order.   Any column
can be selected and then an ascending or descending sort applied.

The setting is not unnecessary if you're visually-impaired and helped by moderate magnification across the board, without resorting to going the Ease of Access route.

Very, very few people actually tweak this setting unless they need or want it.  I am doubting it's a factor here, but it's worth checking just to rule out the potential.

This could also be a JAWS bug, for all we know.  It's always worth reporting this stuff to the JAWS support folks.

This issue occurs because the Windows Custom Text Size (DPI) setting is

To work around this issue, change the Windows Custom Text Size (DPI)

Open Control Panel.

In the case of the Mail App, and People you have in what used to be called Contacts, you need to delete these from the People App.   Anything that remains in actual Contacts (where that's being used) or the People App (where that's being used) will continue to pop up in autocomplete unless removed from the respective repository.

I believe Rahul was asking about how to monitor RSS feeds. Some web browsers will support creating a web page for this, but there are also applications dedicated to reading RSS threads. The tricky part, is that you need to find the app that presents the information in a way that you like. Do you want items categorized by keyword, or publisher? Are you OK with an APP or do you want email. I believe that Google does have a service to scan RSS and other constantly updating services and send you a daily summary. Also of interest, is that a podcast is just an RSS that has attached multimedia files.
