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.

Hi Chris,

 

Thanks for your information.

I don’t know what my options are.

I think Outlook is similar with the old program I used Outlook express.

If that is correct I would like that.

Hi

I don’t understand why you would concentrate on gmail.  You are using the Windows 10 Mail app linked to a gmail account, so you do not mecessarily need to learn gmail commands, as you can already send and receive email.  If you are new to NVDA  and Windows 10, I would concentrate on learning my way around the Windows environment and understanding how NVDA works before looking at the totally different browser based interface for Gmail   

 

Cheers

Chris

Your subject line specifically mentions GMail.  Is that what you want help with or with Windows 10 and using NVDA with Windows 10 or all of those subjects.
