Re: Accessibility in Inbox by Gmail - Inbox by Gmail Help


Heaven Botma <ehlbotma@...>
 

Hi Group

I recently started using Gmail inbox with NVDA and Mozilla FireFox.  It works very well, but for the purposes of my Internet classes, I teach the students the old way, because Inbox doesn't work that well with Internet Explorer, and very few of them will have access to Internet when they leave the college and even fewer will be able to download FireFox on their computers without help.  These students are total beginners and Internet access is limited in South Africa.

If the shortcuts worked in Internet Explorer as well, I would teach them this way, because it is a lot quicker and simpler than going through basic HTML view.

Regards
Heaven

Thanks for sharing this application with us. 
In terms of features and reliability, is it better than mozilla thunderbird?
Cheers.
