Re: Outlook 2010 Help Please.

WOW! Gene, smart thinking! I never even gave that a thought, but this is definitely something good to try. I've also been wanting to install another screen reader, so I guess this is the time! LOL! Do you have a link so I can maybe try NVDA? Do you have any shortcut keys I can use to get started with NVDA? I think that is the correct name of the screen reader meaning NVDA, please correct me if I'm wrong.
Thank you again, smart thinking!

This may well not be related to JAWS. Can you try forwarding a message with
a different screen-reader?

Hi Brian,

Oops, I forgot to say what version of JAWS I am currently using, so the
version is JAWS 2020.

What's your JAWS version?

And I'll say it, though you've almost certainly heard it, but get off of
Windows 7, which is now officially out of support. It is still possible to
do a free, in-place upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10 using these
instructions: Doing a Windows 10 Repair Install or Feature Update Using the
Windows 10 ISO file
The only difference between a repair install/in-place feature update and an
in-place upgrade is that all the steps in those directions take place under
Windows 7 up to and including kicking off the setup.exe file. Anyone doing
an in-place upgrade should take a full system image backup of their existing
Windows 7 installation if at all possible before doing so. I've never had
one go catastrophically bad, but have had a couple that didn't take and were
rolled back to Windows 7. There is, however, the possibility of the very
rare catastrophic failure during an in-place upgrade, which is why you want
the insurance of a system image backup from which to restore if the worst
were to somehow happen.

I used Office 2010 for many years, up until around a year ago, when it was
getting "creaky" on a lot of fronts, many not related to screen readers. I
believe it's now officially out of support as well.
