Re: Problem with NVDA, email, and Esys 80 cell Braille display


What accessibility software doesn't it work well with? it works well with NVDA. I use Windows Live Mail as my main e-mail program.

I've seen some reports of slowness concerning Thunderbird. I don't have excessive slowness with Thunderbird, but on my computer, it takes longer to open messages. It may take about three seconds to open a message. Windows Live Mail opens them much faster. The lag in Thunderbird is really annoying and it wastes time.

I don't knw what other peoples' experience is, but speed is the main reason I use Windows Live Mail instead of Thunderbird.

And you really, really shouldn't. I was a big fan of WLM even for some years after it was out of support, but it is showing its age particularly badly when coupled with accessibility software as time marches on.

It makes sense to switch to a currently supported email client that is likely to remain in support into the foreseeable furture. Thunderbird is my first choice if you don't have access to MS-Outlook. eM Client is not horrible, either, but not anywhere near to as comprehensively accessible as T-bird or Outlook.
