Re: Slightly OT: I have my gmail full and want to delete some amount of mail Can anyone help?

To the rest of you please read the documentation.
I use the gmail standard view and it's brilliant with firefox and nvda.
By the way the delete shortcut is the # key.
Google have done a great job with gmail and I prefer the web interface
to a mail client like thunderbird or Outlook.
By reading the documentation "how to use gmail with a screen reader"
first you quickly get the hang of it.

When using Gmail, a user can enable keyboard shortcuts that work quite well.
There are hotkeys for performing such commands as delete for example.

If you figure out how to go directly to the Delete button I mention in
4, whether with NVDA or any other screen reader, please let me know. I
not for the life of me get NVDA to find that button, and I suspect it's
because of some design trick used for the web page or maybe it's one of
those evil "links made to look just like a button" that's become trendy
these days.


I don't find an uninformed hatred a "principled position" that I need to
respect in any way.
