I think that defeats the very purpose of a screenreader!
If it wont at least, read's the highlighted line, which is the current 1st line
it won't be a screenreader.
Its like asking the developers to don't show a message when opened for
the sighted people.
The devs would respond to them with
"close your eyes"

with our case it would be:

Well, turn off your screenreader! that's the option, and its available
with a hotkey.
This is one of the strangest request I've seen to date.

Hi,



Without wishing to sound too glib.choice is the reason why this is
desirable. For example, I prefer cursoring down a mail as it gives me more
control over skipping bits I don't want to hear, eg URLs, rather than
wasting time listening to it all!



Cheers

No, there is no way. I'm wondering why you ask for it. Purpose of opening a
mail is to read it..at least for me.

But feel free to log an issue with NVDA.



Cheers,

Ralf

Yup, that's normal that it reads the first line.

Hi, is there a way to prevent NVDA from automatically reading an outlook
message when you open it? If so how?
