Re: Thunderbird+ addon now on gitHub

Pierre-Louis R.

Hi all,

Thank you for your interest in Thunderbird+ and for your comments about special key names in the English documentation.

Here is how I fixed these issues.

Since there are several keyboard layouts for the English language, I renamed the keys as follows:

Key-above-Tab : shows the main menu of the Thunderbird+ add-on ;
shift+Key-above-Tab  : shows the Option menu of the Thunderbird+ add-on ;
Control+Alt+Key-above-tab or AltGr+Key-above-tab : starts Thunderbird. Note that gesture is reconfigurable via NVDA Menu / Settings / Input Gestures  and in the category named : Thunderbird+4, launcher and update. The actual key labels appear in this dialog ,

Are these generic key names OK for you?

You can download the addon and reinstall it via the link below:

I hope this link will work for you, the gitHub repository is not up to date yet.

Thanks Brian. Google translate sure has come a long way since 15 years ago. The grave does seem to do what the accent key is supposed to do as it opens the Commands context menu, and tilde opens the menu associated with shift+accent. If you actually want to type those symbols in a message you would type it in notepad and copy and paste. No big deal since I don't think I've ever included those characters in an email until today lol.

It's noted that the documentation in English is Google Translated from French.  Done as a standalone word the above noted word gets translated as powerful or power depending on context.

AltGr is a key common on many keyboards used outside the USA.  It generally replaces the duplicate plain ALT key that resides on the right side of the spacebar.  According to the wikipedia page on Alt Gr, those of us who don't have one can use CTRL + ALT in its place.  I can't be sure whether Accent is being used to refer to the accent grave key (which as you note is generally to the left of the number one on the number row) or accent acute, which a US keyboard doesn't have as a native hard key.

It is much easier to be critical than to be correct.
