Of course, there is always the possibility of vulnerabilities in older versions of Thunderbird but e-mail is a very old protocol and I doubt anything, or anything serious, exists, going back a good way.

Even though I am running the latest version of TB, I went looking for resources and links for others to try. Check the below links. First, you can always, you know, file bug reports? Maybe? On the actual git site? Maybe? Anyway, aside from OE Classic, homepage link, The below links boast some email alternatives.

  1. Alternate email clients by Mozilla.
  2. Another list of email clients. All open source.
  3. TB on Github. File bug reports.


Accessing Chrome History

Dean Martineau <topdot@...>
 

Hello.  I find I cannot see all my Chrome history using NVDA, and can barely do so using JAWS. Chrome keeps history for three months, but I can’t seem to scroll past the last couple days. If a search of history yields lots of results, I can’t see all of them. Is there a way to do this that I’m missing?

Re: NVDA With RH Voice SAPI5

hurrikennyandopo ...
 

Hi


I have added them all together the files that are needed. This includes the nvda rh add on the language data one and the 4 voices.


You will need to unzip the package and install them  all if you want all 4 voices .


The link to the drop box account is https://www.dropbox.com/s/h7zvw44w0bg17cx/rh%20voice%20package.zip?dl=0

I will most probably remove the one with the 2 files in it and leave this one up for at least 24 to 48 hours.

Re: Jaws is now doing better with thunderbird than nvda

Brian Sackrider
 

    cConciter yourself very lucky that you don't get the lag.  My friend has jaws and he does not get the lag or the freeze ups.  I use nvda and I don't keep any messages in any folders in thunder bird.  When I get the big freeze I have to restart nvda and this only happens in thunder bird and no whear else.  I have global search unchecked and that does help somewhat but not all is as it should be.  It seems to be worse on the latest version 68 and on 60 it is not very bad.  It's a problem with that version and nvda.

Agreed here! The second male voice is the one I'm using now. The 2 female voices do need some work though.

Hi


the first add on you get is under a heading called nvda it says like main add on and will need to be installed.


then jump down to the english part and under that is another one for language data or some thing like that it will also need to be installed.


Just under it is 4 english voices you will need to download also and install the ones you want.

so if you only get one that will be a starter.


After the mentioned files have been installed you should be able to see the voices.


You just need to change your synth to RH voice first then pick your voices second or voice you want to use.

Hopefully it should get you up and running at the worst I can drop box main add on language one and the 2 voices i have here.

Re: Jaws is now doing better with thunderbird than nvda

 

Well it depends what you are doing.

I do have my performance settings quite high, but yeah the system is lagging a lot between tasks, but I am on battery and working the system quite hard now.

Its holding charge quite well but since I don't go out as much I need to use my battery when doing work which is not audio related as I knew it chews battery a lot faster.
