As far as I am aware of there is no way to delete all your emails at

the delete button.
I clear those emails I do not need daily.

message comes saying do you want to delete the said e-mails; press the

Re: The word "alert" in Google Chrome

Gene
 

We don't know.  Alert may just tell a sighted person that there is something of interest on screen, maybe with some sort of graphical indication of where it is.  Or it may have content that isn't being read.  We may get more information, but there is no way to assume what may or may not be present.

Re: The word "alert" in Google Chrome

Gene
 

One instance is when on Youtube.  Alert is telling you that an advertisement is playing or going to play.  but I don't know if you hear alert unless you can skip the ad.  the alert may be Chrome showing a message that the ad can be skipped.  I don't know when else you might hear alert.  It clearly is marginally useful, but at least it may tell you that something of interest might be available such as in the Youtube case.  But unless I was encountering something I didn't want to encounter, such as an advertisement playing, I usually just ignore the alert announcement.

No, it does not announce the content when the alert pops up.  I have this same issue and have not found a way to have NVDA speak the content of the alert.  It drives me nuts sometimes.

Here's how to make NVDA read the basic HTML button. The link in post 2 will set basic HTML as default view but if standard still loads, follow these steps. The below link will do it automatically.

Set basic HTML as the default.

  1. Open gmail.
  2. Enter forms mode, focus mode, whatever it's called.
  3. Shift tab, until you hear basic HTML view button. This button is at the very top of the website. The button is not visible in browse mode. You need, need, need! To switch to forms mode in order to see the button.


Re: DELETING MULTIPLE E-MAILS IN GMAIL

Gene
 

The trash folder automatically deletes mail that is thirty days old.  It appears the accumulated mail is somewhere else, such as in the inbox.  It may be that someone wants to remove everything for some reason.  But you don't have to worry about running out of room.  If you run out of room, the oldest messages are deleted and replaced by newer ones.  So if that is the only reason you want to remove old mail, there is no need to do so.
 
I don't use GMail for personal mail that I want to keep private so I don't care about whether it accumulates.  It is all list mail, in my case.
