I don't have any NVDA add-ons installed other then this one.
Are there any other ones you can recommend that brings such
functionality to NVDA?
I'm using the latest build of Windows 10 (64 bit.) NVDA
2018.1 is the build I'm using.
Thanks again for recommending this add-on.

Here you go.
Either save it somewhere and then go and open it, or open it
right from your browser, tell it to use NVDA to open it if it
asks for a program. Tell NVDA you want to install it, restart
NVDA when it asks you if you want to restart, done.

should be able to track it down hopefully.
Never installed an add-on for an email client before, hope
it's not difficult to do.

I just hit enter on a message if I
want to read it, but if you go to the community addons
site, tools/manage addons and then hit the "get more
addons" button, there's an addon for Mozilla stuff that
does what you want, I think. I've never tried it because I
don't use the preview pane at all, but I'm pretty sure it
has something that reads it, a keystroke or whatever.
I can't think of any tips or keystrokes, it's pretty
accessible out of the box so whatever it has for defaults
should be fine. But I us it all the time and have for
years, so if you've got any specific questions, I might be
able to help with those.

I've finally decided to give up my Eudora Pro v7.1 email
client for Thunderbird. I'm pleasantly surprised how
accessible it is using NVDA 2018.1.
I'm now wanting to become more efficient in
In JAWS, I simply created a frame for the Eudora Pro
view message window that was automatically read each
time I highlighted a new message subject using the up
and down arrow keys.
If I wanted to read the entire message body, I just hit
[Enter] on the subject. Very quick and efficient.
The message preview pain for Thunderbird doesn't seem to
be readable though using the NVDA review cursor.
Is there any way to configure Thunderbird v52.6 in a way
where I could quickly read the message body preview and
jump to the next message in the conversation quickly?
I'm very new to both NVDA and Thunderbird, so any
configuration tips, keyboard shortcuts etc suggestions
would be greatly appreciated.
