Re: Help with new install of WLM
I can’t address all screen readers. In my case, I am using Jaws17 on a brand new laptop running Windows10. It appears that WLM needs some tweeking before it will work with Windows10 and Jaws.
Just for clarification, this problem reviewing your messages is only when using NVDA with WLM. this does not occur when using Jaws, or at least, I have never had that issue.
I haven't seen your problem discussed in relation to running Windows Live Mail in Windows 10. I have no idea if there is some way to correct the problem but I don't think it will be by changing settings governing what fields are shown. There is some problem I've seen discussed where, when people start composing or replying to a message, they have to leave the message window and return to it before they can see the text that is there or that they write. I gather you can do this in any way that takes you out of and returns you to the Window. But I would think the easiest would simply be to press alt once to leave the window and move into the menus, and then press alt again to return to the Window. That is the only problem I've seen discussed until you raised yours and I don't know if this is a general problem or a problem you are having and a few others. Windows Live Mail isn't supported in Windows 10 so even though you can use it, Microsoft made no effort to see that it worked properly in Windows 10. I hope others will discuss whether they have this problem as well as provide information such as what screen-reader they are using.
The Name, date, and subject, have always been present running WLM Version 15 with Win7.
Now, with WLM16 running on Win10, its definitely messed up. I hope I can fix this without needing to figure out how to revert back to WLM15, if it even works with Windows10.
Are you suggesting that there may be other known bugs with WLM16 with Windows10?
All that should be shown by default. I'm not saying that you can't have more things shown but if you arrow through the message list and let your screen-reader read everything when you arrow to a message in the list, you should hear the name, subject and date. At least that's the case in lower versions of Windows.
If you are saying that you used to hear such information in an earlier version of Windows, then I would be worried that this is another way in which Windows Live Mail is not compatible with Windows 10. I can check later today if no one else has provided the information of where to find the settings.
I’m using Jaws 17 and a fresh install of WLM, Version 16 on Windows10.
I seem to have 99.99% of the fresh install of WLM setup.
But, where in the ribbons do I go to tell WLM to show Name, subject, date, etc. when, I am arrowing through a list of emails.
I appreciate any tips,
