What add on is this?

I might be missing something but the last time I went on the NVDA add ons page there was 0 about thunderbird.

This is the frustrating thing when add ons are released but for some odd reason are not listed on the official page.

Unless this is a much more recent development (in the last month or so)?

Absolutely correct.

I was stuck using Eudora Pro 7.1 forever, for it seemed to work best with JAWS.

Then I discovered NVDA and the Thunderbird email client. It's a great marriage, especially when you install the add-on that incorporates special keyboard shortcuts for reading the preview email pain.

It's like having Eudora Pro on steroids. This alone has made me a believer of NVDA.

Hi Group,

Since many people like a pop3/IMAP local mail client and since many of same really miss Outlook Express, many use Thunderbird. I can say categorically that for whatever reason, NVDA runs rings around JAWS in Thunderbird. This is my personal experience as to why I use exclusively NVDA and almost never use JAWS any more.

I removed Jaws completely from my PC and have been using nvda only since last october... I do exactly the same things as Jaws: web navigation, checking emails, using text programs et.

I can say in same occations nvda is even better than Jaws... so no need for it now.

Honestly, I may say those who speak bad of nvda is only because they do not know it enough.

Dear friends, the matter of fact is that I’m using JAWS as my primary screen reader since I have started using computer for the first time in year 2010.
The latest tutorial of NVDA by Joseph Lee made me interested in using NVDA.
So I have downloaded and installed it and since then I have been using it as my secondary screen reader!
I’m very happy to let you know that NVDA is well ahead of JAWS specially in the area of accessibility!
Friends, I’d like to request you to please comment about my observation if it is right?
Please let me know the pros and cons of my observation!
