Hi Group,


I started this accidentally in another thread, but I thought it sufficiently far afield to start a new thread on it.


I do indeed see the group by conversation item.  But when I choose it, unlike other mail programs, I get those messages with the same subject line grouped in sub groups rather than in one group.  By this I mean that for example, if I have a conversation that starts out as 'problem with latest Windows ten download and then 19 more messages with the subject line 'Re: Problem with latest windows ten download' that I have say 3 groups of the messages: one with 6 messages, one with 9 messages and one with 5 messages--rather than the whole group being put in a single 20 message thread.  I have never been able to figure out what settings to change to have them grouped as they would be in Outlook Express or Windows Mail--with all such messages in a thread in one single 20 message group.


Hi,


I use TB with NVDA - to have messages grouped together in one thread:-


1. Press Alt and V (view menu)

2. Use down arrow to sort by.

3. I have subject checked.

4. Also in the sort option at bottom check group by sort.


You will now have all of the messages in a one off thread.


Hope this works for you?

next snapshopt and mouse tracking broken

John Hedges
 

It seems like todays snapshot has briken mouse focus and speaking. It is hard to stop speech by placing the mouse over a new item, event when it responds to the mouse. In the Mail app, only keyboard events start and stop speech, which was not the case for prevous builds and prior versions.

 

Van this be reverted?

Re: Spam markers on messages from this list

E-mail providers use spam filters that move mail to a spam folder accessible in the online webmail interface the provider uses. I don't know iff the folder is seen when using an IMAP account in the e-mail program on the user's machine.  It isn't when using POP3 and must be seen online.  This spam filter, is, as far as I know, adjustable by the user online but to what extent, I don't know.  E-mail programs generally have a spam filter built into the program also so there are usually two spam filters, one online and one in the e-mail program.

Developing appmodule for specific website

Webmaster Deweer <webmaster_deweer@...>
 

Dear members,

 

This is one of the little questions I ask here.

 

I’d like to ask the following: is it possible to develop a appmodule or something similar to that for one specific website, like in JAWS?

 

Thanks in advance!

 

Best wishes,

Jordy

Please report this to Virgin Media and ask that they remove groups.io, anything from groups.io, from their spam filtering.  This is not the first ISP who somehow decides that groups.io traffic should go to the cyber round-file.

Re: Thunderbird Add On To Allow First Letter Navigation For Folders

Gerardo Corripio
 

Wow this AddON sounds interesting! What else does it allow you to do? For instance does it allow like with the iPhone, to mark each message as you arrow down or up, for their deletion at once, rather than as I do now, holding the space while pressing Control+arrows to select several to then delete?

Another interesting addon is Select Inbox.

This one sets focus on the first unread message when you open Thunderbird.

In its options, you can decide if you want to open on the first unread, simply the first message etc.

Hi Don,


I have looked for some others that would be specifically for Thunderbird. I have used the Thunderbird add on manager to do so and I haven't found any that seem to do much to enhance screen reader usage.


I am wondering if anyone knows if there is any way to get Thunderbird to group messages by conversation as other mail programs such as Outlook Express and Windows Mail did in the past. By this I mean that Thunderbird does not group all messages with the same subject line and the reply (re:) prefix in the subject line into one group. For some reason, this type of feature is lacking. I almost never get all 20 or more messages in a conversation thread grouped properly in Thunderbird. I usually get 6 or 7 in one group, 3 or 4 in another group and the rest in still another group.


I wonder if anyone else has noticed this and found a solution--be it add on or otherwise.

my outlook message list

Hi if I have like A hole two days worth of messages in my inbox.

And I go to the top of the message list in my inbox.

NVDA won’t read but if I hit the end key it will read the buttom meaning the last message in the list and then I can up arrow for A while and read some of them.

But if I hit the home key and then want to down arrow to read the messages from the top of the inbox down it won’t read them.

So why is this happening?

And how do you correct it?

Running the latest Next version of NVDA on a win 10 laptop.

When using the x key to go to the next check box Before this latest update I thought it said checkbox followed by the title of the checkbox. Now with this latest version it says the title first followed by the checkbox and its status. Did I imagine this or have things changed?

Thanks


Re: Problem With Thunderbird And grouping Messages By Conversation

 

Ron,

          Are these "split groups" primarily for messages coming through an e-mailing list?  If so I have an answer as to the cause, but there is not really a cure.

Hi Group,


I got this referenced from another list.

There is an add on that allows folder navigation by typing the first
letter and it is called 'quick key folder navigation.' The
description says you have to type the first 3 letters, but if you only
have one folder that begins with the letter key you press, then you
will move right to the folder with just the first key press. I have
installed this and it works great. This restores one of the favorite
features for screen reader users that existed in the venerable and now largely defunct Outlook Express.


Using Thunderbird, it is easy to install this add on. Just click
tools/add on manager/search for add on. Type in quick folder key
navigation, press enter, then tab to the list of results, highlight
the add on, right click and choose install. Then follow the prompts.
There is no need to browse the Mozilla website for the add on.

Re: Firefox and RSS

J.G
 

Hi,

some months ago I had same question. unfortunately I did not get a setisfied answer. I tried Bamboo feed reader and other but noone did not me allow to work with RSS feeds in FF as I worked with them in IE.

And what is wrong with IE now? IE is simply becoming outdated and unstable.

So if anyone knows a good addon for rss or as FF terminology says "live bookmarks", I would very appretiate it.
I mean a good addon which can emulate an IE layout and can benefit of FF strenth.

Regards, Jožef


Re: NVDA In-Process

Quentin Christensen
 

Good question.

The NVDA logo is different to the NV Access logo for several reasons.  Firstly, while NVDA is our main product and what we are known for, keeping the identity of the program separate to the identity of the company gives us scope to branch out into other projects in the future.

Secondly the NV Access logo is relatively complex, making it harder to shrink to something which is easily distinguishable in say a system tray icon.  The NVDA logo is described in the blog.  The NV Access logo will be described on the new site when it's live, for now it's in the e-mail I send out to certified experts.  Essentially it is a sunburst shape - like pointy sun with 16 points, inside that is a diamond with a circle in the middle.  The colours are purple, orange and turquoise.

It doesn't matter to us, but if it is possible to invest in this, if we do have a visual logo for nvaccess maybe that should be the icon seen if we can get it at all.

Its not a big issue as such but if it can be done then it should be, for advertising purposes again I don't care but if we have a graphic logo then it should be easy enough to have it in an icon and that be shipped with the app.

Re: NVDA In-Process

Quentin Christensen
 

The original icon was dark grey, which worked well on Windows XP which had a light taskbar / system tray.  Newer windows versions have moved to a darker taskbar / system tray making the icon very low contrast against it.  The new icon retains the overall logo shape but now in white on a purple background ensuring it will be just as visible no matter what background colour it is shown against.  Not the most important aspect of the program for most users certainly, but a tweak which both makes it look more modern and also fits in with the branding refresh we are undertaking a well.

regards

Quentin.
