Re: Giving Up on Thunderbird!

Troy Burnham
 

I'm using jaws and not NVDA but I have had a problem lately in thunderbird where while I'm in a message list I'll delete a message and jaws won't respond anymore. My fix is to arrow up and back down and this seems to fix it but it's not a permanent fix as it happens again maybe a few days later.

Also, once in a while I'll delete a message and jaws will say blank when I give the say line command to read the next message header, but I know the folder I'm in isn't empty. I have to shift tab out to my folder list and then tab back into the folder to get jaws to refocus.

It hasn't been that long that either of these things have been happening, and to my knowledge there has been no jaws or thunderbird updates to cause the problem.

I can live with the work-around, I only mentioned it in case somebody else is having one or both of these problems so you can try what works for me to see if it works for you.

I don't know why you are having the problem.  Clearly, this isn't a general
problem.  If it was, there would be a lot of discussion from others long
before now, as you say the problem has been going on for months. I've tried
Thunderbird recently and have no such problems either with the current
version or a recent version.
It sounds to me as though something has been corrupted.  Rather than trouble
shoot, you may want to try the portable version of the program. Or you may
want to try uninstalling and reinstalling the program.  I haven't done this,
but I don't think your mail or addressbook will be lost.  I don't know if
anything else will such as add-ons or message rules.

The portable version has significant advantages and I think switching to it
is a very good idea.

First, you can easily try different versions.  You don't have to install and
uninstall different versions, nothing is installed with the portable
version.  That's one of the main points of portable versions of programs,
you can run them from anything, a thumb drive, an external hard drive, and
on any machine you wish.

If something goes wrong with the program, you can delete the copy you are
running, and copy a backup, which you have kept current, to the location you
usually run the program from.

Also, if the program updates, you can still have the backup of the current
version available.  If you don't want to use the update, you can simply
delete it and copy the backup of the old version to the location where you
run the program from.  Set the program not to automatically update, but to
warn you when an update becomes available and let you choose whether to
update to avoid the program you want to run as an older version from
updating when you don't want it to.  Make this change when you first install
the program and it will be retained in future updates and in the backup
copies you make.

It has been many months now that the Thunderbird email program has been

used Thunderbird successfully for many years.  I mostly use NVDA with
it.  For some months now, I often lose speech and the program slows down
to an agonizing crawl.  The apparent downloading of email is announced
one by one, choking off the speech you actually want to hear.  At times,
I have not even been able to accomplish anything for many minutes due to
these problems.  I disabled the mail and status toolbars, but that did
not help.  Over the last day or two, it appears that the problem has
gotten even worse.  Unless someone can suggest a solution to these
problems, I am ready to give up on this program.  Thus, I would be
interested in hearing recommendations for an email program that actually
works well with screen-reading software, including NVDA.  Thanks.

Hi Kay,

From within Firefox, go to tools, options, and from near the top of the page, there is a list, in which you need to choose privacy and security.

Find passwords, which is a level 2 heading, and untick the option called Ask to save logins and passwords for websites

Have you tried doing a complete uninstall, restart, and reinstall?

When a series of atypical behaviors keeps building on itself, that's the first thing any technician will recommend.  And if you've been using a modern e-mail protocol like IMAP to access your messages you lose nothing in doing so, provided you've also synced your contacts and/or calendar.

I have seen very little change in the behavior of Thunderbird over the last several years in regard to how it behaves either with or without a screen reader.  I have seen isolated reports, such as yours, of major issues.  And if you want to even try to stay with Thunderbird "burning down the existing house" and rebuilding it by uninstalling completely and reinstalling would be the starting point.

Someone will tell you how the offers can be stopped, but when you hear such messages, let them play fully at least once. If you do, you will hear shortcut commands announced at the end so you don't have to find the message. You can accept or not accept the offer but I'm speaking more generally in case you hear other announcements you want to respond to.

So personally, I would never by brother. I miss my old hp mls10 lazer printer, it worked so well, could not take windows10 drivers otherwise it would still be here.

Hi Group,

 

I know this has been discussed in the past on this and other lists, but I am in the market for a color laser printer.  It has to be accessible which means some way of interacting other than the touch screen and voiceless screen on the printer itself.

 

I called Amazon disability which lists dozens of them. They couldn't help me a lot other than giving me the phone numbers for accessibility for Canon, Xerox and HP.

 

Here's what happened when I tried these phone numbers:

Xerox the number was disconnected

HP never answered--even after 5 hours on two separate phones Canon answered and a woman with a heavily accented voice assured me that the one she referenced would do the trick. Color imageCLASS MF743Cdw. . This device which it is a bit pricey at $379 US weighs in at a massive

64 pounds.  I would consider this more seriously if I could be sure I could lift and position it properly without collapsing my utility table.

 

So again as I may have done in the past, what are people using for a laser printer and how are they accessing it: app, voiced onboard touch screen, echo device?

 

Thanks for any help.

Does it have to be just a caller ID unit? AT&T makes a very inexpensive
answering machine that announces the numbers of callers. It also keeps the
numbers along with the messages left so that when you listen to the messages
or move from message to message, the number is announced first.

The machine is available from Speak to Me for a cheaper price than on the

difference but you can buy the machine for about seventeen dollars.

There may be implications for other situations.  Usually, the link

copied it there from the browser's address bar.  If that is what you
did and the link was defective, that means that it may be that the
very common practice of people sending people links to articles by
copying links from the address bar and pasting them into a message may
not work with Edge.  If they don't, that is important to know and is a

Hi list members,

Does anyone know of any company or organization where I can purchase a
standalone talking caller Id for my landline telephone with preferably
100 memories? I’m not keen on cordless phone options. Thank you in
advance for any suggestions.

Kind regards,

Tim.
