Also, how do you get to the messages link using the old screen-reader?  It may be that NVDA presents the page slightly differently or doesn't see something your old screen-reader did, or it may be that a setting change will allow you to see the page in the same way.  Try the following:

Open the NVDA menu with NVDA key n. 

Down arrow to preferences and press enter.

Down arrow to browse mode and press enter.

A dialog opens.

Tab around until you get to Use screen layout when supported.

If it is checked, uncheck it.  Then press enter.

Does the page display as it did before? 

Or try the reverse.  If it is currently unchecked, check it.  See what happpens.

Hi Morne,
I use NVDA extensively on with success. Could you
specify the web browser and its version being used at your end while
encountering difficulties in accessing your Messages?
