RE: Outlook or Outlook express?

If you are using Jaws 7.0 or Jaws 7.1, there is a bug where the auto
complete information is not spoken when you type in the to or cc field in an
Outlook message. If you type enough characters for the auto complete to
complete the e-mail address and then tab out of the to field and then tab
back in to the field, you will hear the e-mail address.

This is another one of those little annoyances that is supposed to be fixed
in Jaws 8.0.

Regards,
Ryan

Yes, I did this. I went through every tab in the tools menu / 
options, I found the auto complete option but, it will not work. Like 
I had posted before I can route Jaws to PC  go to the send to field 
and click on that button and my address will drop down.
Chris,
why will the one at your work not work but, the one at home will, ?

Thank you,
