Sorry, I wasn't quite accurate in my last mail,, but you found the menu items anyway. In Seamonkey, go to View Menu, then Show / Hide, then press the right arrow key to start the submenu with the various toolbars that you can show or hide. There is a further submenu for Website Navigation, which you can again reach by pressing the right arrow key.
From the main menu bar, for example, if you are at Bookmarks, the submenu should appear if you press the down arrow. I have no idea why items are not being spoken by NVDA.
It may be that some settings have got corrupted , in which case it would be an idea to remove Seamonkey and start again. If NVDA is otherwise working OK, this may be the best option. I remove programs with Revo Uninstaller, which looks for relevant files all over your PC, and so may remove any corrupt material.
To get the current version of seamonkey, version 2.39, go to:
That link above should start the installer downloading. In Seamonkey or Firefox, you will get a dialog box asking you to save the file before you can run it.

Thank you for getting back. Yes, menu is checked, but there are about 4
or 5 other things below it that are also checked and it doesn't read
what they are. I know how to get to the view choice when things act
normally, but when I left and right arrow when I'm in the file menu, all
I hear is submenu submenu and that's it. Does that help you any? Can you
give me any tips on things to have checked or unchecked so it will read
better? Please and thanks?.
