Hi Bob,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Unfortunately, that didn't work for me.
In fact, using Narrator is far more efficient recently with Outlook than NVDA is.
All the best

Subject: Re: [nvda] NVDA and Outlook messages
Someone can correct me if I'm wrong, but I think this is what the UI Automation checkbox under advanced in settings is for. I can't remember what it was I was reading recently when I decided to try to navigate by heading just for the heck of it and it actually worked.
Outlook seems to be a program where using UI Automation is a must, as this has solved most of my problems with it. I do, however, think NVDA does need a bit of improvement in the following areas when working with Outlook:
1. When changing navigation methods, NVDA is quite slow to respond in emails containing lots of graphics. For instance, I've talked a lot about emails I get from Groupon on this list. When navigating those in Outlook, I usually use NVDA+down arrow to read initially, then stop it, and use tab to navigate. In some of those emails though, tab just presents unlabeled links though, so I have to use NVDA+down to read again. When doing this, there's a half second or so delay between the time I give the read command and the time it actually starts reading.
2. When deleting an email from your deleted items folder, NVDA sometimes reads the subject line of the just deleted message instead of the subject line of the message you're currently viewing. When deleting a message from the Inbox or a saved folder, NVDA says nothing until you give it another command.
3. As discussed a month or so ago on this list, with certain versions of Outlook, you have to use your down arrow key to read a suggestion when typing an address in the to field of an email.
Hope this helps, and hope someone can correct me if I have the name of that checkbox wrong, but I think it's use UI Automation.
