Glenn, I like your suggestion. Well, you weren't suggesting it,
but that works very well anyway! gonna do that more often--read by
paragraph. I just never think to do that

I like to read by paragraph, with my
thumb on the right control key and down arrowing.

Subject: Re: [nvda] reading mail in outlook 365
Since this is the second email in a row
to ask a similar question, I'm curious, why do people read
pieces of text that may be long, using the arrow keys rather
than Say All (NVDA+down arrow or NVDA+a depending on your
Note that I'm not saying you SHOULD do
it one way or the other, just wanting a better
understanding of why people do things the way they do.
For me, I use Say All with a finger ready on SHIFT to
pause speech as needed.
You can force Outlook to open emails as
plain text rather than HTML (File menu, options, Trust
centre, Email security, read all standard email in plain
text), however, that displays links to external images as
links and reads out the full link of each, rather than the
HTML view which simply denotes "graphic".

I decided to try my hand with Outlook
365. I liked it, overall. However, emails with NVDA and
Outlook 365 didn't read as well as they do with
Thunderbird and NVDA. For example, it appears that using
arrow keys in some emails in Outlook 365 is not a great
solution. All you see is blank lines and graphics,
whereas you see links and a fairly compact view in
Thunderbird. The tab key doesn't change this in any way,
shape or form.
Has anyone else seen this, and if you have, does anyone
have a solution? For me, using Outlook 365 won't work
unless I can get around these issues. I'm using the
latest version of NVDA alpha. Any help with this one is
much appreciated, and thanks in advance.
