Thanks for the heads up. I did get the Systray
add-on. Still trying to get use to using the Winkey+b shortcut.
I'm really looking for a way to copy and append
info onto the clipboard.
JAWS offered the [Insert+Ctrl+c] function to do
this. Does NVDA offer this functionality? I tend to do this alot
when creating my own cheat sheet for learning new programs (Like

You'll want Windows App Essentials definitely I think. There are
some things that simulate functions of JFW, if you're used to
that, e.g. the systray or system tray, forget what it's called,
gives you NVDA-f11 which brings up a list like JFW. You don't need
it, you can get to the system tray with Winkey-b I think, but I
used it when I was starting out because I was so used to it in
JFW, and just kept on using it.
There's also a place markers addon and a ... I don't remember what
it's called, but it puts things in a window you can copy out of.
Looks like it's called "virtual Revision". Basically I'd say have
a look around the community addons site. They all have
descriptions so you can see if they make sense, or just try a
couple at a time and see what you like. For example, I installed
"day of the week" once because I actually needed that
functionality, but I found I only needed it that one time, so I
got rid of it.
There are a few addons that are useful for specific things that
aren't on the community addons site for some reason, the two I
know offhand have to do with games. But the community addons are a
good place to start because they're vetted by the community so you
know there's nothing bad in them. I think that happened once,
there was some addon, I forget what it did, supposedly gave you
access to a bunch of synthesizers illegally maybe, but it turned
out to be some sort of virus or such.

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

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.
