it is still about strategies to get things done and a specific
[add-on is mentioned. I believe you use NVDA and Thunderbird. Do
you want information about the add-on?
My general point, not about only your tag line is that asking if
there is a way to deal with a problem, on a list such as this, may
allow you to know of one that is far more effective than asking a
lot of people or an institution to change something.

Thank you gene, I certainly take your point. Since I'm not the
only one to mention this one, and it ain't very serious, I'll
just keep my mouth shut. After all, Most of the time, I don't
really have to care who sent the message.
I'll take the tag/signature off my messages and just let the
This discussion ain't very technical, huh?

Either your screen-reader has a command to read the from
line when a message is opened or you can get an attachment
to be used with your screen-reader and your e-mail program
that will do so. If you tell us what screen-reader and
e-mail program you use, we can discuss what is available for
your e-mail program. There is no guarantee that your e-mail
program will be able to be used in this way but it probably
can be. When there is a ;problem of a type like this, it is
better to ask if there is a solution first, rather than
asking people to change their behavior.

my retiring computer, I have bookmarks in Chrome and in
Firefox. I'd like to export all of them into a file that I
can put on a thumb drive and move to my new machine and
import them into (probably) Chrome. I'm not finding an
export function in those browser bookmarks. Does anyone
know how this can be done?
