You are correct. You can click on the buttons but no longer click into the fields. Of course when you create a new email message, your cursor is already in the To field so it might be assumed that all you need to do is dictate the addressee. We don't have an answer for you but we can show you how we deal with this in KnowBrainer 2017. 

 

If we are creating a new message, we begin by saying Email <dictation> which will create a new email, type whatever name we wish to message, move the cursor to the subject time and even lock on Title Case.  Example: If we have emailed Donald Trump in the past and who hasn't, we can say Email <Donald Trump> to create a new email, type Donald Trump into the To field (where Outlook will make its best guess to complete the address) and move the cursor to the Subject field. While we are in the middle of our message, we can say CC <Eric Trump> to add Eric Trump to the CC field and move our cursor back into the message where we left off. If we don't want Donald to know that we are also sending a copy of this message to Ivanka Trump, we can say BCC <Ivanka>. In this particular case, we don't need to include Ivanka's last name because how many Ivankas do we even know. Don't forget that you can replace the contents of the Subject field anytime by saying something like Subject <Who's Your Draft Dodging Daddy> (Donald loves a good joke. He even said that). Also note how everything in the Subject field also appears in Title Case. Feel free to copy the following KnowBrainer Advanced Scripting command to get started. You can say Email <anyone> to create a new E-mail to anyone Outlook is familiar with and move the cursor into the Subject field:

 

Name: Email <dictation>
