What should happen is:

Bypass key

User application shortcut implementation.


This certainly happens in 2003 and 2007.


I suggest communication with GW Micro!

Well I just tried that on your message.
I hit insert B, window eyes said bypass,  and then hit control shift R. All
that happened was that Outlook started me in a reply to your message.

Checking the Window Eyes Manual it appears to me from studying that the use
of the by pass key is the opposite of what you are suggesting?
It seems to say that the purpose of the by pass key is to prevent Window
Eyes conflict by suppressing the window eyes function in the keystroke so
that the application you are using can grab the keystroke. In other words it
is the window eyes command which is by passed not the application.

What I want to do is the opposite of that . I want not to suppress the
window eyes function but suppress Outlook from overriding that function by
replying to an email when I hit control shift R. In fact it seems I need the
opposite of bypass.

I am happy to be corrected on this.

Hi,

As with JAWS, Window-Eyes intercepts the keystrokes used for its hotkeys and
if that hotkey conflicts with one for the application - as in the case of
SHIFT+CONTROL+R - you need to use the bypass key which is INSERT+B.

I wasn't aware of differences being made for 2010 and would be surprised if
they had been.  I don't use 2010 but this definitely works for versions up
to and including 2007!

Now I have turned insert key mode off, a different problem has emerged with
Window Eyes.

Consulting the manual the inbuilt Window Eyes keystroke for read to end of
document is control shift R. However if you do that in an email message in
most programs you will of course simply execute a reply to all command.

How then can a Window Eyes user read the entirety of an email without having
to cursor down?

I have Google this without success. This search did turn up an app to read
mail automatically is on the Windows Eyes App Central website.  but Although
this is reported to work with Outlook 2007  it clearly does not work with my
Outlook 2010.
