JAWS Power Tip: How To Navigate Your Outlook Inbox Like A Table

Released: 5/5/2022

Share to Facebook

JAWS for Windows Tips.

By default JAWS reads the highlighted item in your Inbox as you move up and down through your emails.

Let's say that you know the Subject of the email and don't want to be bothered by hearing who it was from, importance, if it has an attachment, etc.

All you need to do is use the Table Layered Command of INSERT+SPACE followed by the letter "T".

Now you can move through the different columns of an email.

Once you move to Subject, you can then press down arrow to move down the subjects of your Inbox.

Once you find the email you are interested in you can press ENTER and your email will be opened.

You will notice the tone indicating Table Layered Mode is now off.

You can also use CTRL+ALT+ARROW keys to move left or right on an email in your Inbox without running Table layered Mode.

This will not work for moving up and down, just moving left and right.

Note that this works on any folder containing emails.

The Power of JAWS!
