Thanks for that additional info, which is good to have in case I need it.
I am beginning to figure things out but agree 100 percent that it would be a lot easier if accessibility needs were taken more seriously and met by developers of mainstream software. I just had a discussion with the tech support of another software. They recognized and replicated the problem I had described. (I gave them the link to NVDA for them to test the result.) However, I won’t see any change for the better to arrive at my fingertips anytime soon. Let’s face it, the problem I raised landed at the very bottom of their to-do list because it is not of immediate concern to the majority of (sighted) users.

Be aware that adding an email signature is doable but is also a pain in the neck. It would behoove you to write out your signature starting with stars(*) to separate the message from the signature.
do this in notepad then copy
tab to settings
arrow down to signature
If you have the necessary boxes checked to add a signature then tab one tab past picture. Note you wil not hear anything.
paste your signature
shift tab to save and enter
Hopefully this will be enough. You won't know until you open a new email and arrow down in the message field to see if it is there.
I have been complaining about the lack of accessibility for years with the results you see now.
