My guess is it is in the JAWS Outlook script, so it won’t work in just any app with a virtual buffer.


Besides, you wouldn’t want N to be doing that on a website.


All the best

Hi, I just tried it on some messages in Thunderbird and it didn’t work. Not sure if they were text or html though. I don’t know how to check that. It is working fine for me in Outlook though.

I would be surprised if it did not.  This has to be using the HTML structure, with lots of emphasis on block quote arrangement, to parse the message.  That should be the same no matter what email client is being used.  That is unless FS has actually limited invocation to be in Outlook only, but it makes little sense to me that they would.

You could test this theory out if you know you have a long, multi-quoted message where the exchange was conducted entirely in plain text.  If it still works, then I have to be wrong, or at least only partially correct and there's a way the algorithm recognizes the differing formats and parses accordingly.
