Re: nvda and e-mails

Steve Nutt



Unfortunately, NVDA doesn’t have the ability to automatically read all Emails when you open them in outlook.


If you open an HTML Email, then Say All kicks in, but it still reads the header and all that garbage. If you open a text based Email, then it only reads the first line.


That’s why I say compared to JAWS and Narrator, it is horrible to use with Email.


All the best

Hello Jean,

Just always read line by line,

Remember I used to use jaws so not as difficult.

However as Mentioned to steve I found its only with certain commercial e-mails I have this problem.

Kind regards,

Dennis huckle.

If you use read to end instead of manually moving by line, you won't hear blank spoken.  NVDA doesn't announce blank lines in read to end. 


Is there a reason you read messages by line, as you appear to read at least some?

I have Microsoft office.

When using nvda to read e-mails unless I use the browser to read them in nvda, not jaws, lots of blank lines appear in the e-mail received.

Is there a way of reducing the number of blank lines whilst reading an e-mail.

Also some e-mails close when using nvda.

This, as mentioned doesn’t happen in jaws.

Any suggestions welcome.

Kind regards,

Dennis huckle.
