Re: Tutorial on using the Gmail Web View with NVDA

Lenron
 

also I am wondering if this way stops gmail from clipping your message
if its very long.

I don't use GMail but I listened to a little of the tutorial and, as I
recall, the person says to use shift enter to open the message in a new
window. That is a good procedure and it's worth doing in a lot of other
instances as well. By opening the message in a new window, you can return
to where you were before on the other page simpley by closing the Window
with alt f4. You won't loose your place because the other window was always
opened and you are simply returning to it. I use the command routinely when
I know I want to return to a previous page and resume where I left off. For
example, when I'm on a newspaper page, I use the command to follow a link to
read an article. I can then return to the previous page by closing the new
window and never lose my place. I'm on the link I followed.

I use it when following search results on a Google page. I may want to look
at numerous results and this makes it much more convenient to look at a
result and then return to the results page.

I didn't realize the importance of this procedure for quite some time after
I started using the Internet. the importance of it should be emphasized
when teaching blind people to use the Internet. it isn't.

Dear all,

I downloaded the mp3 version of Brandon Biggs' tutorial on NVDA with
Gmail and I have some doubts regarding that.

1. In what way(s) is/are the standard view better than basic html view?

2. What's the difference between opening a mail and opening a mail in
a new window?

Thanks and regards.

I'd suggest most people here are using email clients not web based systems. As we tend to top post then one only needs to read down as far as one needs to remind us of the thread debate.
I don't know how one might handle removing quoted messages on the web site as obviously there needs to be some character or group thereof that the web based system can act on.
If it were all completely web based this would be relatively easy by using different fields for things, ie the quotes would be henld in a different store. As long as you allow email though you lose this.
WE could all set our clients to not quote messages in replies and forwards, but then, I know from experience we get complaints the other way around for those not coming here often not getting up to speed if the messages have expired.

Nowadays, when replying to threads on this list I used the web interface, which avoided the possibility of accidentally inserting quoted messages.

What I've been seeing is that, not only were the bottom of each messages contain quoted messages in full, but from time-to-time those quoted messages also contain quoted messages, once again in full. This makes navigating through threads really annoying. I know that when replying to a message, it's good to quote the message in question, but there has to be an option to hide it, either in the user settings page or on the thread display page.

Alternatively, the quoting of messages can be avoided entirely if there is a threaded system of replies, I.E when I reply to a message my reply would appear as another level under the original messages, of course with the option to either expand or collapse the replys.

Some more occurences of 'unknown' in Thunderbird are when you tab
around the main screen or page of Thunderbird, where two or three
unknowns appear subsequently in tab order, before the event related
buttons.
I also must disable whatever I can and see if Thunderbird actually
increases my efficiency or productivity in any way as opposed to my

Re: Hide quoted messages

Gene
 

I'm not trying to give you a hard time but why are you starting a new thread when the topic is still the same?  The subject line does not have to change every time you respond.  The subject line is a general indicator of what a thread is about.  If the thread changes so that it has no relevance to the old subject line, then changing it makes sense.  It makes no sense to change a subject line because you are discussing only one aspect of a thread that is related to the general topic.  You start a completely new thread every time you do this. 
 
In addition, I don't know how much it costs for people who pay per use to receive a lot of quoted material.  The cost is one thing to consider.  There are other considerations.  For example, when I look in archives of lists, even though a lot of people don't use archives, I often find it convenient to see quoted messages.  It saves me the trouble of looking through different messages in the thread to see a lot of messages in one string.  Also, if many list members are like me, we receive a lot of mail and it is often very convenient to receive mail with quoted material in case we want to review something we might not remember clearly that occurred earlier in the thread. 
 
If a lot of quoted material does pose a financial problem, I'll consider quoting much more selectively.  I used to not include quoted material but I got complaints on another list that I should include some quoted material.

Hi,

I just gave Sophos Home Cloud Antivirus a try, and I must say, it's reasonably accessible with NVDA, from what I tried in a virtual machine (although it lags, but that's normal for a virtual machine). It's web-based control panel, too, is accessible (at least with Jaws). As Sophos is a company that makes cloud protection sollution for businesses, I would expect the home edition of its cloud antivirus to be equally good, in terms of the level of protection.

P.S I've given up on Nod32, after learning from one of my university staff that I can only update it when my computer is connected to the campus's wi-fi network, which is impossible for my desktop computer at home.

Re: Hide quoted messages?

 

I'll also second the both prior posters' observations/suggestions.

I have been occasionally criticized because I will top-quote a single line to three lines from a prior message to establish context when I think there could be ambiguity regarding which prior message was being responded to.

I find it very difficult to plow through threads when the majority of responses bottom-quote all prior responses in their entirety.  I understand how this can and does happen, but I would welcome a feature on groups.io that would allow all quoted material below the last bit of new material (in case anyone occasionally uses a quote-response-quote-response format) to be hidden, preferably by default.  Anyone who uses Gmail via its web interface has seen this style in use for years now.

Sorry, I wasn't quite accurate in my last mail,, but you found the menu
items anyway. In Seamonkey, go to View Menu, then Show / Hide, then
press the right arrow key to start the submenu with the various toolbars
that you can show or hide. There is a further submenu for Website
Navigation, which you can again reach by pressing the right arrow key.

From the main menu bar, for example, if you are at Bookmarks, the
submenu should appear if you press the down arrow. I have no idea why
items are not being spoken by NVDA.

It may be that some settings have got corrupted , in which case it would
be an idea to remove Seamonkey and start again. If NVDA is otherwise
working OK, this may be the best option. I remove programs with Revo
Uninstaller, which looks for relevant files all over your PC, and so may
remove any corrupt material.

To get the current version of seamonkey, version 2.39, go to:
https://download.mozilla.org/?product=seamonkey-2.39&os=win&lang=en-US

That link above should start the installer downloading. In Seamonkey or
Firefox, you will get a dialog box asking you to save the file before
you can run it.
