Re: How to mark un-read messages inwindows live mail

I realize that this is a late post but the procedure when using Windowsmail in Windows 7 is that it should be installed after the service packs are installed and then there is no problem.

Hello Tom;
First thank you for the kind words.
I do understand your frustrations with WLM,
FS could really rectify this problem by labeling the graphics,
And, providing some scripts which would alleviate the problem folks are
having with the client.
Although the research it feature may be a good tool for some,
I really think we need to start shouting a little louder so FS may get the
Regarding windows mail,
Yes it does sound sort of daunting for those who really don't want to be
messing with the registry tweak, however, it really isn't that difficult, if
you follow, the steps.
Yes, the windows mail has the OE feel, and, it's very simple to use,
However, as I indicated, some folks after performing the registry tweak, had
problems downloading and installing the windows 7 service pack 1.
I'm not entirely sure what the issue was, all I do know is, it was talked
about on other lists.
Unfortunately, because I provide adaptive training here in Canada,
I try to learn the most used email clients, outlook,
I do run a yahoo list,
Which pertains to screen readers and email clients,

I hope I've ansered some of your concerns.

Thanks very much, David.

This seems cumbersome, but is certainly better than nothing.

I am not sure I'
m liking Windows Live Mail very much, for this and a few other reasons.

I know some folks on the list are suggesting that we go to something called
Windows Mail for an e-mail interface that is more like the earlier Outlook
Express in Windows XP, but I am not sure how accurate this is, how difficult
it would be to do, and when I'd get the time to do it. However, it might be
worth considering.

If you have any thoughts on this, I'd certainly welcom them.

Thanks for your help with this current issue. Once again, I really
appreciate your being out there.

Hello Tom;

If you're using the 2011 version of windows live mail, then the graphics
indicate unread, attachment, etc are not labeled by default.

However, you can label these

:1. Open windows live mail.

2. Normally, Jaws is set not to read any unlabeled graphics. To temporarily
change this behavior/setting so that it reads them, so that you can find
them and label
them: press insert+v to open the adjust jaws options dialog;or, in jaws13
it's now refered to as, quick settings.
press the letter "G" until you hear jaws announce Graphics - labeled; press
spacebar to cycle to the next option for this setting which is graphics -
all, and then press enter to activate the default close button.

3. When jaws reads a message in the message list, it now reads each
graphic as graphic followed by a number, and these all occur before the
name. What you will need to determine is,
what is the number graphic corresponding with, unread, attachments.

4. To label a graphic, move to a unread message
the list which is unread, that is jaws says graphic and the graphic number
when reading it;
insert + numpad minus to route the jaws cursor to the pc cursor - this
the jaws cursor at the beginning of the senders name; press left arrow till
get to graphicXXX press insert + g to open the graphics labeler dialog;
initial focus is a label edit box, with the text graphic xxx selected; type

unread, and then press enter to activate the default ok button.

5. Repeat step 4 to label any other unlabeled graphics that you want to
6. If you close and reopen windows live mail, the jaws setting for reading
graphics will have returned to just reading labeled graphics.

Hi, all.

On this new laptop with Windows 7, I am currently trying to use Windows Live

As some of you may know, this is a real switch from the much more
blind-friendly Outlook Express e-mail program I used to use wwith my old
Windows XP laptop.

Anyway, I am finding that when I access my g-mail through Windows Live Mail,
there is no way to tell which messages are unread. My sighted wife tells me
that the unread messages are marked in bold, but Jaws is not reading this
for me.

Is there any good way to note unread messages in Windows Live Mail and

I am using Jaws 11 here.
Thanks for any help anyone can provide.
