The confusion may be that Microsoft offers versions of the suite that are in the cloud and versions that are on the user's machine. Something may be in the cloud and the interface may be as though it were on the user's machine.

No, outlook is not web based. I’m using it now, and it is a regular GUI , not a web-based GUI .



Happy Monday.

Well, if that’s the case. I’ll either stick to the windows mail app or just use Google’s site to check mail. I think Outlook is web based. I used outlook 2010.

Guess I'll be looking for another email program soon. Too bad as

Thunderbird has worked great with nvda for many years.

Hi,
regarding to a presentation at FOSDEM 2021 it is planed to make
Thunderbird more and more a webbased application based on Electron.
I wonder what that means regarding to accessibility in Thunderbird in
general and what other free graphical mailer will be available for
Windows if Thunderbird might become inaccessible or at least very
inefficient regarding to useability when it is a full webbased program.
Is anyone in touch with the Thunderbird developers and can find out
more about their plans and how much they will have accessibility in
mind?
I fear they do not care much about accessibility, so the next
question is what can we do to bring this isue more into the public?
It would be really sad to loose the only really free and good to use
graphical mailer for Windows. AFAIK there are not much alternatives
left then, which is a real shame for such a central and important
form of communication for blind people, especialy in this very
challenging times :-(.
Cheers,
Schoepp
