CodeTwo and Petri.com talk about email signature management at Microsoft Ignite

Microsoft Ignite 2019 just ended a few days ago, but it still resonates in us. Our representation team had many inspirational and positive talks with other attendees, many of which were our happy customers. One of the talks was particularly interesting, where CodeTwo’s CEO, Simon Szczesniak, was asked by Brad Sams from Petri.com to shed some light on the concept of central email signature management.

Office 365 migration delivered in a conversational way

Once every couple of years, there is a time when a considerable number of Exchange server admins begin to seriously consider migrating mailboxes from their on-premises servers to the Office 365 cloud. This usually takes place when the end of support date is approaching rapidly for another on-prem Exchange server, just like in the case of Exchange 2010 at the moment. Or when a new Office 365 datacenter is introduced, just like recently in Germany. Contrary to popular belief, migrating mailboxes to Office 365 doesn’t have to be an overwhelming task. If you don’t believe it, you surely haven’t read J. Peter Bruzzese’s “Conversational Office 365 Migrations” or used CodeTwo Office 365 Migration yet.

How to disable Read Aloud in Outlook and Word

I’ve recently stumbled into quite an annoying problem in desktop versions of Word 2019 and Outlook 2019 regarding the Read Aloud functionality, which I needed to turn off. As you may already know, Read Aloud is a neat text-to-speech feature that, as the name implies, is designed to read the text from your Word documents files or Outlook emails aloud. So, what’s the problem here? Well, first of all, I don’t use it. However, it often happens that the program starts reading my text even though I don’t want it to. This happens because I accidentally turn this functionality on with the Alt+Ctrl+Space keyboard shortcut (e.g. if I miss the Ctrl+X or Ctrl+C shortcut).

In this article, I would like to share my solution on how to disable Read Aloud in Outlook and how to remove the shortcut key in Word that turns this feature on.
