Re: Emojis



I'm using latest jaws, outlook 2016,

here's what I figured out.


first create new message, ctrl+n=new,

or, you could do a reply, ctrl+r=reply,

in the body of the message, do the following,



1, Windows-key+semi colon,


2, Windows-key+apostraphy,

you now should hear;

Emoji panel is opened,


3, you need to right arrow to find the group of Emoji's,


4, enter on the group you want,

now use the tab key, then arrow you should find the list of Emoji's.

hope this helps a little.


       The impossible is the untried,  Never under estimate the power of a dream.

Hi Judy,

I have the same thing as you do and putting emoji on an email use to work fine. But today as I try it I have not been able to make it work. Not sure what has changed.

Judy, I’m curious, what version of Jaws are you running?


I’m using the latest one and It’s speaking out the Emoji's just fine.


Is it possible you’re using something other than HTML to compose your messages?

Hello, Rebecca and All,


You are correct, and very happy to tell you that windowskey semi-colon indeed brings up Emojis you can choose from, but Jaws does not speak anything, unless you input a character first, then you can use Jawskey and arrow to hear the choices.  Simply arrowing through what you have inserted will not read anything.


Again, I am using Outlook 10 with Windows 10.


Thank you all for leading me to try other things.  Right off the bat, when Jaws was silent, I was assuming I had no Emojis available, but when I had some time, started experimenting a little.


Again Jaws will read nothing unless you insert something, then you can use the jaws plus arrow keys to hear your selections you made.
