- NVDA Not Reading Contacts in Outlook Distribution List
Re: NVDA Not Reading Contacts in Outlook Distribution List

It is an issue we (and Microsoft) are aware of. FWIW, it also affects Narrator.
Several very imperfect workarounds in the interim:
Use next / previous object commands to have NVDA read the list. The command will report "selected" for the currently selected contact. As the focus is not correctly following to begin with, using object navigation here always behaves as if "focus moves navigator object" is off.
After using the arrow to move through the list, press ALT twice to move to the ribbon and back. The problem is the focus does NOT return to the list, it goes back to the list name, so you need to press TAB to then move back to the list, but then the last item with focus is reported.
I haven't heard an ETA on a fix from Microsoft yet.
