Subject: [nvda] OE Classic fixes list
Glad to see they responded to feedback! Lists have been fixed in the
version 3.1. This version isn't available for free users yet. My guess is,
that when OE Classic 3.2 comes into beta, then free users will get 3.1. See
below for links and emails.
This is an email client that's supposed to be a modern imitation of Outlook
Express.. Profiles and IMAP is not supported in the free version yet.
The announcement email.
At last, we can announce a huge improvement for OE Classic
Previously, OE Classic lists were unreadable by Jaws and NVDA (or other
This is no longer the case!
Now, we've finally cracked the code required to properly announce and
narrate those lists to a screen reader. This includes - message list (list of
messages), contact list and the list of folders. We went through all the
windows and it appears, that this affects all the windows which were
previously blank to a screen reader. In addition to that, the names of the
lists should now also be properly narrated (such as message list, tree view,
followed by a list of actual messages).
Also, when keys are used to navigate (for example, arrow up/down) each
individual item is narrated separately (which could be a folder name, a
contact name or a subject line of a selected message) which is consistent with
the standard message list.
This is a huge improvement for accessibility in OE Classic. Combined with
the earlier improvement we did - message boxes, this will make OE Classic a
whole lot more accessible. Even though there is still room for improvement
which of course we'll continue to work upon, we believe that this one will
make a significant difference for OE Classic users in their daily usage.
The new feature is available in OE Classic 3.1, today's update (2020,
February 17th) so if you're using an older version, please update to use this
