Re: NVDA+Outlook, and number of new messages

David Griffith

If you are talking about Jaws I have to use the same techniques as below using Jaws 2020 and Outlook subscription version to find out the number of unread emails. In other words it is the same as NVDA now unless there is a command in Jaws I am not aware of.

I was only an occasional user of Window Eyes so I do not know if this was a feature it had.

Many thanks, Cearbhall, for that tip. The screen reader I have been using

for years displays such information right away when I open Outlook. I guess

I will have to do some learning when switching to NVDA as my primary screen



Best regards,

Close all open emails and make sure that your cursor is resting on any

closed message in the current folder.

Press control+Shif+tab to opens the "Folder List". NVDA announces "Folder

List minimised".

Press space bar to expand the list.

Arrow down to the folder you want.

Note that NVDA speaks the number of messages contained in the folder after

giving the folder name.



You can also open the Folder List by using control+y but this view of the

list does not show the number of emails contained in each folder.


All the best,

I am looking for a method in NVDA to determine the number of new messages

arriving in Outlook's in-box, spam folder, and junk mail. Does NVDA offer

such info without my having to arrow up and down each list in each folder?
