Re: NVDA and Outlook message status


This is a peculiarity with Outlook (or at least Outlook 2010, which I think has been carried over).  Virtually every e-mail client or web interface prefixes a forwarded message subject with either "Fwd:" or "FW:" and that gets read when going through the message list.

Outlook strips that from the message subject and I have yet to figure out how to make it stop doing that.  I have just posted a question to and hope to learn more about how this might be changed back to the more conventional behavior where the forward and reply indicator text is left in place on the subject display.

I haven't used Outlook on a regular basis in years and hadn't realized it did this until I fired up my copy of Outlook 2010 to take a look at what is happening. 

I worry a lot. . . I worry that no matter how cynical you become it's never enough to keep up.
