Tips for Using Thunderbird v52.6 with NVDA 2018.1?


Kenny
 

I've finally decided to give up my Eudora Pro v7.1 email client for Thunderbird. I'm pleasantly surprised how accessible it is using NVDA 2018.1.


I'm now wanting to become more efficient in reading/navigating messages.


In JAWS, I simply created a frame for the Eudora Pro view message window that was automatically read each time I highlighted a new message subject using the up and down arrow keys.


If I wanted to read the entire message body, I just hit [Enter] on the subject. Very quick and efficient.


The message preview pain for Thunderbird doesn't seem to be readable though using the NVDA review cursor.


Is there any way to configure Thunderbird v52.6 in a way where I could quickly read the message body preview and jump to the next message in the conversation quickly?


I'm very new to both NVDA and Thunderbird, so any configuration tips, keyboard shortcuts etc suggestions would be greatly appreciated.


Thanks.

I just hit enter on a message if I want to read it, but if you go to the community addons site, tools/manage addons and then hit the "get more addons" button, there's an addon for Mozilla stuff that does what you want, I think. I've never tried it because I don't use the preview pane at all, but I'm pretty sure it has something that reads it, a keystroke or whatever.


I can't think of any tips or keystrokes, it's pretty accessible out of the box so whatever it has for defaults should be fine. But I us it all the time and have for years, so if you've got any specific questions, I might be able to help with those.

Do you know the name of this add-on? I should be able to track it down hopefully.

Never installed an add-on for an email client before, hope it's not difficult to do.

Here you go.


https://addons.nvda-project.org/addons/mozillaScripts.en.html


Either save it somewhere and then go and open it, or open it right from your browser, tell it to use NVDA to open it if it asks for a program. Tell NVDA you want to install it, restart NVDA when it asks you if you want to restart, done.

This add-on is fantastic! Makes navigating Thunderbird much quicker.


I don't have any NVDA add-ons installed other then this one.


Are there any other ones you can recommend that brings such functionality to NVDA?


I'm using the latest build of Windows 10 (64 bit.) NVDA 2018.1 is the build I'm using.


Thanks again for recommending this add-on.

You should get the Win 10 apps add on for sure!  This will make life much better for Win 10 users.

Sure. You'll want Windows App Essentials definitely I think. There are some things that simulate functions of JFW, if you're used to that, e.g. the systray or system tray, forget what it's called, gives you NVDA-f11 which brings up a list like JFW. You don't need it, you can get to the system tray with Winkey-b I think, but I used it when I was starting out because I was so used to it in JFW, and just kept on using it.


There's also a place markers addon and a ... I don't remember what it's called, but it puts things in a window you can copy out of. Looks like it's called "virtual Revision". Basically I'd say have a look around the community addons site. They all have descriptions so you can see if they make sense, or just try a couple at a time and see what you like. For example, I installed "day of the week" once because I actually needed that functionality, but I found I only needed it that one time, so I got rid of it.


There are a few addons that are useful for specific things that aren't on the community addons site for some reason, the two I know offhand have to do with games. But the community addons are a good place to start because they're vetted by the community so you know there's nothing bad in them. I think that happened once, there was some addon, I forget what it did, supposedly gave you access to a bunch of synthesizers illegally maybe, but it turned out to be some sort of virus or such.

Hi,


Here's a few short cuts:-


When you have the list of messages shown:-


Press F - moves to the next message

B - moves back one message

N - moves to next level


I have my TB set up to read by subject and have group by search checked.


This puts all of thread into one message; press right arrow to go into next level (says expanded), press  down arrow and press enter to open message. Or press N for next level and press enter on message.


To go back to list press Control and W.


I also use Lightning and first letter navigation in the tree use add on's.

Don't see why not. Give it a shot and let us know.

Either save it somewhere and then go and open it, or open it right from your browser, tell it to use NVDA to open it if it asks for a program. Tell NVDA you want to install it, restart NVDA when it asks you if you want to restart, done.

I can't think of any tips or keystrokes, it's pretty accessible out of the box so whatever it has for defaults should be fine. But I us it all the time and have for years, so if you've got any specific questions, I might be able to help with those.

Hi Roger,


With the Windows 10 Weather App, can you get information in the history panel for daily information? When I use that App with the NVDA add on, I can get the monthly history but not the daily history.  Is this the way the app works or is that a fault in the NVDA add on?


Thanks for help.

I'm using the latest build of Windows 10 (64 bit.) NVDA 2018.1 is the build I'm using.


Thanks again for recommending this add-on.

Thanks for the heads up. I did get the Systray add-on. Still trying to get use to using the Winkey+b shortcut.


I'm really looking for a way to copy and append info onto the clipboard.


JAWS offered the [Insert+Ctrl+c] function to do this. Does NVDA offer this functionality? I tend to do this alot when creating my own cheat sheet for learning new programs (Like with NVDA.)


On 3/15/2018 4:57 PM, John Isige wrote:
Sure. You'll want Windows App Essentials definitely I think. There are some things that simulate functions of JFW, if you're used to that, e.g. the systray or system tray, forget what it's called, gives you NVDA-f11 which brings up a list like JFW. You don't need it, you can get to the system tray with Winkey-b I think, but I used it when I was starting out because I was so used to it in JFW, and just kept on using it.


There's also a place markers addon and a ... I don't remember what it's called, but it puts things in a window you can copy out of. Looks like it's called "virtual Revision". Basically I'd say have a look around the community addons site. They all have descriptions so you can see if they make sense, or just try a couple at a time and see what you like. For example, I installed "day of the week" once because I actually needed that functionality, but I found I only needed it that one time, so I got rid of it.


There are a few addons that are useful for specific things that aren't on the community addons site for some reason, the two I know offhand have to do with games. But the community addons are a good place to start because they're vetted by the community so you know there's nothing bad in them. I think that happened once, there was some addon, I forget what it did, supposedly gave you access to a bunch of synthesizers illegally maybe, but it turned out to be some sort of virus or such.

Provides additional keyboard shortcuts for reading various sections of Mozilla Thunderbird.


I'm primarily using the NVDA+Down arrow shortcut to read the message preview window. It does a lot more. Visiting the page list some of the various extra keyboard shortcuts it provides.

Thanks. I'm definitely going to be putting your tips to good use. I'm loving this Thunderbird client even more then I did Eudora Pro. Wish I made the switch sooner.

Hi,


Here's a few short cuts:-


When you have the list of messages shown:-


Press F - moves to the next message

B - moves back one message

N - moves to next level


I have my TB set up to read by subject and have group by search checked.


This puts all of thread into one message; press right arrow to go into next level (says expanded), press  down arrow and press enter to open message. Or press N for next level and press enter on message.


To go back to list press Control and W.


I also use Lightning and first letter navigation in the tree use add on's.

I actually came across your page before I started by doing some Googling. I use much of your suggestions on that page to set things up.

I don't think NVDA can do it, but you might consider a third party clipboard manager, I'm pretty sure they can. Warning! I haven't tried any of these so I have no idea if they're accessible, or even run under Windows 10, 64-bit or otherwise. I don't think they should break anything, but try them at your own risk.
