some messages are very slow in Outlook

Hi,

Yes, Narrator does automatically read messages, if you turn on the Make Outlook More Efficient tick box. If it is off, it behaves like NVDA.

All the best

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.

Bob,

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.

I enabled UI automation for Outlook yesterday afternoon. Since then I
have had zero outlook crashes even though I have opened dozens of the
types of emails that crashed regularly without UI automation.

I am pretty convinced that UI automation also fixed my outlook crashing issue.

UI automation also improved Outlook accessibility in a few other ways:
1. Now Tables in HTML emails correctly read the headers when I use
table navigation, like tables on a web site
2. The scheduling assistant tab now correctly seems to choose the next
available time instead of getting stuck or suggesting I hold my
meetings in the middle of the night.

FWIW I created a profile for outlook so that is the only place I am
using UI automation.

Are the NVDA devs considering enabling UI automation by default on a
per app basis in a future release?

Thanks,
Mike

Outlook 2016. Messages from Xfinity sometimes do it, but not as
reliably as those from Uber. Groupon sends out so many different types
of emails that I can't guarantee every one of their messages will have
issues, but the messages that all use the same template do all have
issues. I have no idea whether this is a bug with Outlook or NVDA, but
I came from System Access, and had very few problems with that screen
reader. One message was causing a problem with a particular DLL, but
fixing that file fixed that problem. System Access read every Groupon
message without having to change any setting deep in the advanced
settings, nor did it ever slow down with certain HTML messages.

But I have had this crash happen more than 9 times today.

nvda 2020.4

At this point all the emails that I have seen are company
confidential, so I can not share an example.

I suspect this is an outlook bug not an nvda bug. Any tips on how to
submit a report to MS? My local IT has not been that helpful getting
a bug filed on MS.

Another email program isn't an option for this, as the messages in
question have already been sent to my account using Outlook. I have
since switched most of my emails to the account I'm posting from now,
where I am currently, and have always, used the Gmail web interface.

messages to use HTML for such things as formatting, but doesn't allow
anything to run or any HTML to do anything in a message except that which

displays formatting and which allows you to follow links.

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.

If this is enough of a problem, try reading messages as plain text and see what happens. Also, you could try using another e-mail program and see what happens. Firefox has a setting to use simple HTML. That setting allows messages to use HTML for such things as formatting, but doesn't allow anything to run or any HTML to do anything in a message except that which displays formatting and which allows you to follow links.

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.

Hi all,
I'm hoping someone can help me figure this out. I'm still going
through and trying to clean out 11 years worth of emails from Outlook,
and in recent days I've come across several messages that slow down
NVDA's response time with Outlook, as in when I press the command to
read it hesitates for something like 10 seconds. If anyone uses Uber
with an email account that you have connected to Outlook, schedule a
ride and then try reading the email that is sent with Outlook. I found
one of those that I had saved and it reacted very slowly as I
described. If it makes any difference, I have "use UI automation"
turned on to prevent Outlook from crashing when certain HTML emails
are opened.
