Re: NVDA and the AutoComplete List in Outlook 2016
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I’m using Outlook 2016 and NVDA Version 2019.1.1 and can’t get it to read the AutoComplete list no matter what I do. Perhaps I should turn off all the Add-ons I have active and test it with the bare bones.

Using NVDA 2019.2rc2 and Office 365 (16.0.11901.20170), I found:
- When you start typing a name, it doesn't autocomplete however list of suggestions does show below. Press the down arrow to select a name from the list, or tab to select the first item from the list and add it to the current field.
- The first time I start typing a name in a message, the list appears but nothing is read until I down arrow through the list. If there is more than one item in the list, NVDA reads it. If there is only one item, the focus doesn't move, so NVDA doesn't read.
- After the first time, NVDA reads the first suggestion as soon as the list appears.
We do have an issue for this here: https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/8502 I just added a comment, but if anyone has any extra information, please feel free to comment on that issue.
