Aha! 

 

Thanks very much.

 

I actually did not have it in plain text, but changed to that format when composing, tried again, but with no luck.  No feedback from Jaws.  I also tried with Narrator with no success.

 

I’m going to stick to the dependable www.emojipedia.com.

I think what Victor is asking is, is your Outlook set to plain text instead of html.

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.
