Windows Live Mail has a feature that does about the
same thing as the autocomplete list and is completely accessible. It
allows you to search for a contact while you are composing a message and then
place the address in the two line. It is a dialog. You can type any
part of the name or address and it will search for it. John will find all
Johns and show them in a list. Smith will show all Smiths. You can
type anything anywhere in the name and address and it will show all
I would think that Word, a more complex program and
one you pay for, would also have this feature. I consider that it renders
the autocomplete list unnecessary and redundant. it may take an extra two
keystrokes, roughly, to open the dialog but what does that very slight increase
in keystrokes matter?

Subject: Re: [nvda] NVDA and the AutoComplete List in Outlook
In that issue I linked to, there definitely was an issue reading
any of the auto complete list in Outlook 2016. I don't have 2016, but my
testing in Outlook 365 indicates that the auto complete list does now work, with
the caveat that it doesn't read fully the first time around.
The issue will likely be, whether Microsoft will be willing to fix the
autocomplete list for 2016, or whether they will say that they've fixed it as it
works in Office 365.
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.

very strange that it would work with JFW and not NVDA. Perhaps others on the

Skye, I’m using
Outlook 2016 and JAWS 2019 as well as the latest version of NVDA. It
works well with JAWS and not with NVDA.

Hi all. For some reason NVDA doesn’t speak the
AutoComplete List when I start typing people’s names or their email
addresses in the To, CC or BCC Lines in Outlook. Am I missing
something like an Add-on? This seems like a feature that should be
there like it is with JAWS and Narrator. Any help will be greatly
