Hi, Gene,


Yes, that’s correct. Setting thunderbird to simple HTML or plain text will stop those notices.

If you change to reading mail either as text or as simple HTML, that will probably stop those notices.

Yes. I use read to end a lot. Especially when opening a message from the list: Or, when Thunderbird bugs me about unloaded images and stops automatic reading.

  I just wanted an easier way to suppress all those titles and notifications. 


Thanks Rosemarie. Opening messages in a new tab works.  Changes my workflow a bit but I can handle it.

You can use the read to end command.  I saw someone propose another solution but I don't know how well it works.  it is changing whether messages open in a new tab or window or whatever the choice is.  You can see if changing it works.

I have the latest Thunderbird.

Is there a way to suppress reading the title of message when it opens? 
NVDA and Jaws both read the title as much as 3 times when I open a
message from the list.

I think one time is because the message pain is opening.  Then the next
is the screen reader saying the title of the window. Then saying the
title of the document.  This gets very old fast.  I have automatic
document reading on.

Please point me in to documentation that might help.
