It works well for some people and not for others. It hasn't been supported for a long time. Also, every six months, when there is a major update to Windows 10, it is removed. I don't think it is a good choice for simplicity and long-term leave it alone reliability. I believe the emphasis of the discussion should be to find out, as well as we can, what you, Fred want to do and we can then discuss the best way to proceed.
the mail app may be fine if all that is wanted to do is to send and receive mail and use an address book. If the person doesn't want to create message rules and I'm not sure what the app can't do, but it may be fine for basic e-mail use. I don't have Windows 10 but it isn't a question of generalities and what a lot of people want. It’s a question of this specific person
What synthesizer is being used? You said you have problems with understanding the letter e. So I'm asking the list if there are synthesizers that might be better for people with hearing impairments.
I saw in a preceeding message that you, Fred, don't know how to use the Internet well. Your sighted son isn't a good way to learn it. The training material available from the NVDA developers and creators of instructional material may be good in teaching how to use the (Internet as a blind person. I haven't used that tutorial and I don't know how much and how it teaches concerning that topic. but I hope those who have will describe it. Does that tutorial teach Windows along with NVDA and browsing? Should some other material be used along with the NVDA tutorial? Would perhaps a few hours of individual instruction be a good idea? It is available, though you may have to pay for it.
My concern is to make learning as easy as possible and to find out what you want to do so that things aren't made more complicated than necessary. There is nothing wrong with Outlook but if it isn't necessary to meet your needs, something simple like the app may be a better choice. I haven't used the app so I can't compare the two. I'm saying that I think people should first find out as well as possible what you, want to do and match recommendations to that.
