Re: Outlook 2016 NVDA not announcing To & CC fields separately

As I recall, the Thunderbird add-on has four commands for the fields to be read all separately, to, from, cc, and bcc.

I disagree with your assertion on grounds of efficiency. It is slower to shift tab back to the fields in question, then tab back to the document. Sighted people can just look at the fields. Why shouldn't blind people have a command that reads the one desired?

I think its good to know how to move through the fields whether you know screen-reader commands or not but that's a different question.

I actually disagree. if you can expand both fields per the article then there is no need for nvda to do this.

Other screen readers have this ability for years. NVDA should also have this ability.

Hello,
There is nothing we can do from an addon perspective, you need to expand the outlook message header. Pls see this link:

Sir,

I am using NVDA and outlook 2016 with addon outlook extended. But by keystroke ALT + 3 NVDA will announce both To and CC fields of mail together. we can not able to understand which mail id is of CC and which of To field. Addon developer please guide or any other way to listen CC and To fields separately
