I agree with you. All this G then I to go to the Inbox for example, when you can press Control+Shift+I in Outlook.
Brian’s mentioning webmail clients is that typical of sighted people, who don’t look deeply enough into the accessibility of them.
Webmail clients are sometimes accessible, but rarely efficient to use.
All the best

Well, if people who are blind are choosing to use a method that requires two to three times as many keystrokes to do the same task, that is certainly their right and I say more power to them.
I just logged into gmail on the web.
Yes, it is far better than it was a few years ago.
But, using a gmail account with Outlook, means when I arrow down my inbox, I hear who it is from, the subject and the date.
That was one keypress.
If I go to the gmail web page, It takes three keystrokes to get from one subject (without knowing the sender) to get to the next message subject. The extra keystrokes are going passed the select check mark and the Star check mark.
So, this is really user preference and I want to be really clear, I am not making any value judgement that one way is better than another.
I like the way I do it is all.
