Narrator will read the list of emails in m y Inbox but the email is not opened by ENTER.  If I open the email using mouse click then Narrator only reads som,e header stuff and not the message text.  Even when Narrator puts a blue box around the email message text, it does not read the text.

Does Narrator work with Office 2010 for other people?

Any hints on how to make it work?

Could you suggest a better forum?  Sorry I know this is not the right place.

I must get this to work while I can still see something.

                    Welcome (See Mission Statement)

Pretty much all other speech recognition related forums have been decommissioned. We were able to find one Windows Speech Recognition forum but it hasn't received a post since 2017 and is only narrowly focused to a dated WSR speech recognition utility. It is also rumored that WSR will not be included in the next Windows release.

Office 2010 is a bit dated but shouldn't be an issue. We recommend googling for another read text utility like TTSReader, which is free. 

However, if you have a small budget, you might consider DPI 15.61 which is cutting-edge speech recognition that also includes a TTS utility.
