Randy, please stop your incessant preaching at me.  I have been around screen readers and screen reader users for well over a decade now.

I cannot help it if someone does not bother to vet the actual content of a page they post.  And my describing something in visual terms, as there are many here who did at one time have vision or still have some residual vision, cannot and should not be considered an insult to anyone who doesn't.

I don't give a damn about your opinions.

Sorry, Mr. Barnett, but how it's presented generally carries some formatting weight that screen readers also pick up on.

It's the first freaking thing on the page.  If MS malformed it, that is unfortunate, but I'm not about to dig into page HTML to determine that.  When there is a big, bold notice at the outset of a page I would presume, and generally am right, that screen reader users will hear that right up front just the way I see it right up front.

So, if "that's not cool" to you that's perfectly OK with me.

Assuming you have your messages set to html format, once you open the message, try tabbing to the link and then hitting enter.

I have had to do that with a few emails lately.

Hello,

I’m using the most recent version of windows10, Google Chrome and Jaws2021. I’m on a web site where I wanted to reset my password. I was able to getan email sent to me. There is a link the jaws reads “link reset password”. I press enter on the link and it doesn’t do anything. Above that line is a graphic and some words and the same with the line below. I pressed enter on each line and nothing happens. I used the Jaws cursor and clicked on each line. Nothing happens. I talked to the sites support and they couldn’t help me due to security. Has anyone encountered this problem? To me their email is not setup for a screen reader to recognize the correct link. The site is match.com. ON the site it has a link saying if you are using a screen use this link to help navigate the site. Well that sort of works yet there are some spots I cannot get the data to be entered as Jaws cannot get to the field. Yet I get the message saying all data has not be entered. Any thoughts?

 

Thanks,

I think you should check with Jaws Help folks to see if they still support those 2010 products in the current version of Jaws.

I think their ‘no’ answer will give you a good reason to reconsider your decision.

Hi Richard,

 

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


Steve

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.

Support is not tech support, or at least that's not what's meant.

Microsoft (or any other software maker) supporting a product means that they do what's necessary to keep it safe to use as circumstances change.  The most important part of software support is security patches.

I am not telling you, or anyone else, what they may or may not choose to do.  But you have not been getting any significant maintenance and patching since last October, and using things like e-mail clients and web browsers that are out of support is using a wide open attack surface as time marches on.

I can't say that I've never, ever used anything that is out-of-support but what I have used does not have any contact with cyberspace.  That's not possible with an email client or web browser.

Hi again,

After going back to the page with Jaws and Edge, I finally found that heading, once, but it was skipped the first time.

When I went back again, it was not there unless I expanded one of their support options.

 

I can only say, that Microsoft could easily make that information more apparent for a blind user by not just having it in one line in a heading level 3.

It should have been in a heading level 1 and perhaps repeated later on the page since using their own products, it was easily missed.

 

I’m glad I have Microsoft 365.

Hi, I've been using outlook 2010 and it's not supported anymore so I need to change. What clients do you all use that are relatively easy to navigate and use? I know I can buy micro office 365 or thunderbird which is free. What's your opinions. Thanks in advance. Judy & Libby

I think web mail is still not as good as applications myself. And I haven't seen any post from blind people saying they prefer web mail. But that's just me. Are used Thunderbird. Outlook if you like it is good.

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.

But my point, along with offering a couple of email client options, is that using webmail is precisely what should be done, and far more often.

The days when webmail was mostly inaccessible is long gone.  There seems to be a great deal of "slow on the uptake" of this fact.  And there are a number of folks who post here, on the NVDA Group, and on the Win10 for Screen Reader Users Group who use Gmail webmail as their primary email access method.  If significant gyrations were necessary on a routine basis that would not be the case.
