I do believe that JAWS currently has no problems with the “info bar” that Outlook puts into messages indicating such items. So, are we talking about in the message list or in the message window.

My apologies for the misunderstanding, you are quite correct, whether a message has been replied to or forwarded is not reported. This is a known issue. We have looked into this earlier this year, and it appears we need a fix from Microsoft
to expose the information correctly. See our issue here if you are interested in further details (or subscribe to it to be notified of updates): https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/6911

I realise I wasn't clear enough. NVDA does in fact mention that messages are unread, but this is the only status announced. It stopped announcing that a message has been replied to or forwarded. I have just forwarded an e-mail to confirm what I am saying and
NVDA does not announce that the message was forwarded. These various statuses used to be announced until around May.
Could you perhaps test these two scenarios, forwarding and replying and confirming if NVDA announces the status or not? If those work for you but not for me, you can let me know and I'll send you a log.
Thanks for attending to this.

Can you please confirm what you mean by status? Using NVDA 2018.2.1, NVDA 2018.3beta3 or NVDA alpha-15933,b3aff97c as I move through messages in the current version of Outlook 365, NVDA reads "Unread" prior to the sender and subject of messages which are unread
(and nothing for read messages).
If a message is "flagged" it reads that information first, and if a message is categorized, it reads that information at the end.
If all of that isn't happening for you, could you perhaps send me a copy of your NVDA log to
info@... ideally at debug level.

I have noticed that the NVDA snapshots of the past two months or so no longer read message statuses in Outlook. This is true of Outlook 2013, Outlook 2016 and Outlook in Office 365. Could this be an unpleasant side-effect of the migration to WXPython 4? Can
we look forward to this being fixed in the not too distant future. It really was such a helpful feature when NVDA used to announce message statuses.
