Re: some messages are very slow in Outlook

Bob Cavanaugh

Does Narrator automatically start reading messages? I think I'd find
that annoying, but I really don't understand why NVDA has so many
problems with Outlook either. For instance, I have to use UI
Automation, otherwise Outlook crashes, but only when NVDA is being
used, and now this, which people have observed, but nobody has given
me a solution to fix.

Yes, I can confirm that messages are a lot faster in Narrator. Also, if you
have Narrator's Use Outlook More Efficiently checkbox checked, it doesn't
read all the message header garbage. NVDA could learn a lot from Narrator
with Outlook.

Also, NVDA doesn't read the whole message, so you have to initiate a read
all, or cursor down through the messages.

All the best

I notice some messages are slow, such as messages from;
Amazon, audible, my bank, yes, messages from buisnesses.
Regular mail from individuals or email lists are fine.

I have seen this and suspect the problem is the HTML markup of the messages.
Uber's messages would have some very cluttered HTML and perhaps javascript
which could be slowing NVDA down.
