Hi David,

I don't have the 2020 beta yet, but can you reproduce this with JAWS 2019?
If no, then it is not a beta issue.  I can't reproduce it here.

All the best

I am consistently  experiencing a Jaws 2020  beta crash in the following
1. Open Outlook 365 (Desktop version)
2. Focus on any message in the inbox.
3. Press control space to de-select the message.
4. Press application key to bring up the context menu.
5. Move down to sort by in the context menu and press enter.
6. On my system Jaws immediately crashes Outlook 365 but Jaws remains
7. Repeating these steps with NVDA running opens the sort by dialogue and
options wit no issue with ability to rearrange the sort criteria of the
inbox satisfactorily so this appears a Jaws and not an Outlook issue.
Can anybody confirm this behaviour?
