Re: amount of messages


I realized this now although I don't think Maria made that clear in the first post.

Sieghard, the original post was asking about Thunderbird.

It works perfectly fine for me in Jaws 18 both using Windows 7 and Windows 10 with Outlook 2016 via Office 365 download.
Make sure you don't have an update window hiding this, this has happened before and there is no way at all for Jaws to access this window, you really would need a sighted person taking a look.

I repeat, pressing insert plus num pad 3 reads number of messages in folders, but only in 2018 version of JAWS.  They broke it in JAWS 18 and somewhere along the way before.

Carolyn, neither of these key combination works for me in Thunderbird mail. Running current version of Win Ten and Jaws.

Press the Insert Key on the Num Lock and the Page Down or 3 on the Num Pad. It should read the number of messages in a specific mail box. Mine did not do that at first, but when Microsoft Disabilities addressed a problem I had, they fixed that without me even mentioning the issue. I was really glad.

Best from,

I have found that the best way for me to get the information you are asking for is to highlight the folder you want and then use the touch cursor to read the information.

First, start the touch cursor by pressing shift plus the numpad plus key.
Go to the bottom of the screen by pressing control plus end.
Now, use your left arrow and move back until you read all of the information you want.  You may need to move as much as four or five times to get all information.
When finished, press the numpad plus twice (quickly) to get back to standard mode.
