locked Re: How to prevent NVDA from automatically reading messages in outlook when open them?
That isn't what is being asked. The person is complaining about the first line being read automatically when a message opens. Earlier, the person asked how to stop automatic reading of messages when they open. People are asking why it matters if the first line is read when a message opens. They didn't ask why the person wants to make the first change he asked about, not having mail read automatically.

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!
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.
Is there anyway to prevent this?
Yup, that’s normal that it reads the first line.
That is unchecked in outlook 2016 it still reads the first line.
NVDA-Control-B, Alt-S, uncheck it.
Hi, is there a way to prevent NVDA from automatically reading an outlook message when you open it? If so how?
