[External] : Re: Jaws and links within emails

The only time I have to copy a link is from a calendar reminder within the Outlook calendar. Those links always have the http so you know it's a link. Most of the time these are Zoom meetings so I just copy it into my Browser and that works fine.

Frequently I see two links for a site, one is labelled graphic and th other is not. Clicking on the graphic link acts like you say, the other link usually does what is wanted.

Also, I sometimes have to arrow into the middle of the link to make it activate properly.

Hi, JM. The links of which Madison and others are talking can't be copied to the address bar, because the link just says, click here, or something like that. It isn't an URL with an http or something like that. If you copy click here into the address bar, that isn't going to take you anywhere.

You could try just copying the link into your browser's address bar/open dialogue.
When you see these links in your e-mails, are you sure your virtual cursor is on?

Subject: Jaws and links within emails

Hi all,
I've had an issue on and off that when I click on a link within an email I'm taken to the subject of the email and not the webpage that the link is for.
This is extremely annoying especially when it happens with verification emails, is there anything I can do to prevent this from happening in the future? I've tried changing the format that email messages are displayed in, but this hasn't made any difference, I know someone told me that when I'm on a link I can bring up the context menu and get something that says open hyperlink or something, but I've tried this and have not yet found such an option. I'm running the latest versions of Jaws, Edge, Office 365 and Windows 10. Look forward to any help anyone can provide me, everyone's help is always much appreciated!!!! Thanks Madison
