I am as well. Insert 3 on num pad hasn’t given me that sort of info for years now. When I press insert 3 I get, Filter applied, zoom 10 percent.

I’m using Outlook 2016 also.

I’m using outlook 2016 and that doesn’t work.

I’ve always used Jim’s route…

In addition to Jim’ suggestion, when you’re in the message list, press insert-3 on the numpad. JAWS will tell you the total number of messages in the folder, then the number of unread ones.

Hit Control Y which brings up the folders menu.  Inbox should be the firstone, showing the number of unread messages.  There may be a better way but this one works for me, as I don't need to check every few minutes.   I seem to always have a bunch of unread messages as many are news related and don't demand immediate attention.

Hi List,

 

Does anyone know of a hotkey shortcut to get JAWS to speak the unread messages in an Outlook 2016 inbox?

 

I apologize if this has been covered recently but I'm asking for a friend and haven't been thoroughly digesting the recent Outlook posts.

 

Thanks in advance.
