Hi All,

Try booting your computer.  Start NVDA.  Kill any unnecessary
processes from Task Manager (Acrobat, Dropbox, iTunes, etc), and then
launch TB.  Chances are there won't be a lag.

Start up the apps you can't live without one by one, and as soon as TB
lags, you'll know who the culprit is.

Please read my messages in context and with proper care.  I was responding to the message below it in the quoted material.  Clearly, I am talking about the suggestions made to solve the problem in that message and why they are very likely not to apply.  In that context, I was saying that this isn't a general problem with the performance of that computer.

I'm confused.
Not a general problem?
What would you call it when multiple people from varying areas and
computer types/operating system versions have the same problem then?
What is your definition of a general problem?
Generally, when multiple have the same problem, even if at least one of
them (that'd be me) solved the problem without knowing how, that doesn't
make the experience any less valid.
I'd certainly classify this as a problem, regardless of your definition of
general.

Re: Latency when typing in Thunderbird

I've never compacted any messages, but I do have the advanced search check box off and still at random when I'm writing a long message, there is a lot of lag and it eventually slows down so much i have to shut off TBird. It's horable and this is after I receive all mail.

Re: Alternative to InfoPath

Quentin Christensen
 

That's true, I assumed InfoPath must have provided something extra, but I've never used it either so I wasn't sure exactly what it does over what Word already provides.  I have found issues with forms in most versions of Word (seemingly something gets fixed in a particular version as something else gets broken).

Quentin,

           Never having used InfoPath, and not knowing exactly what they're looking for, I can say that you can create fully accessible fillable forms using Microsoft Word.  I've done it on multiple occasions for clients.  It's just something most people don't know about and don't know how to do.  You end up with a .dotx file that can be used to create as many instances of a fillable form as one might need, or after having created one use that blank fillable form to send out with as many copies as you need.

Hi there. I’m not experiencing any latency when typing and Thunderbird. As I said previously, I have a PC with the 12 GB of RAM, when terabyte of hard drive, and an eighth of June I seven. I have to say though that I had received four gigs of RAM, and I three and 293 gigs of Hyridge five and there was not late in Seattle. I wonder what this could be. Sorry for the errors, but I used dictation.

This probloem seems to vary from one machine to another. There is another one that seems to vary as well. Some people complain that Thunderbird is slow to open messages and some people say it isn't. the same is evidently true of this problem.

I wonder if there is some technical commonality in the machines that are slow. I don't have the technical knowledge to speculate knowledgeably about what it might be but I wonder if it might have to do with hardware. I don't know how a chip set is defined but I wonder if that might be a common cause.

I never have had sluggishness issues with Thunderbird and NVDA. I know earlier versions of JAWS had all sorts of issues. According to users of the latest version of JAWS, this should no longer be a problem.

Not getting it on this end and am using the latest thunder bird and the latest version of nvda and windows 10 version 1809.




Out of curiosity are you doing it from a braille display or the normal keyboard on a computer?

I did not know it before, but it`s really accessible and it has a lot of helpful shortcuts.
What prevented me to know that was the fact that you need press nvda + space to make it accessible and to activate keyboard shortcuts on gmail settings.

Yep I face the same issue. I tried to compose a mail in tBird and even with the advanced search off, I got between 5 and 10 seconds between letters and arrowing through the message, in fact my whole machine locked. Theres a huge memory leak somewhere and I want to find out whare.

Hello all


I have just moved onto a Windows 10 machine and am running the latest version of Thunderbird and of NVDA.


When typing in thunderbird, there is some latency (I am echoing letters when typing). It is almost a letter behind.


Has anyone else come across this? Any suggestions for fixes?


thanks,

Re: Alternative to InfoPath

 

Quentin,

           Never having used InfoPath, and not knowing exactly what they're looking for, I can say that you can create fully accessible fillable forms using Microsoft Word.  I've done it on multiple occasions for clients.  It's just something most people don't know about and don't know how to do.  You end up with a .dotx file that can be used to create as many instances of a fillable form as one might need, or after having created one use that blank fillable form to send out with as many copies as you need.
