Hi,
My university also uses outlook and office 365. I do not use jaws very often. I typically use and the DA, but have been told that the interface is more accessible with jaws. I too am wondering if there is an easier way to do it. As school has not started quite yet I use Outlook on my phone, because it is just easier and more efficient at this point. In just a few weeks I will begin school and outlook on my phone will no longer be sufficient.
