Re: Here's what I don't like about Edge.

Well, I've had issues with all parts of the out look mail package with JAWS.
Hope this answers your questions.
I'll stay with WLM unless it gives me serious issues and I then would have to switch to a new program.
Hopefully Blind friendly.
But yes WLM offers both sub mailboxes and message rules/message filter options so that your inbox isn't over flowing with mail.
Many like most of us, I take e-mail for granted. SMILES.
I remember the good old days with large print typewriters and having to squint my brains out to read a page that I just typed.

I don't use Edge, but re the row and columns stuff, that's a screen-reader
feature. Maybe it's eroneously recognising stuff as tables. But if you go to
your jAWS verbosity settings, you should be able to turn this off, in any
browser. I recently upgraded to jAWS 2018 and I noticed I was getting a lot
more "false table readings" in firefox than I used to -- not on every page
but for example in the private messages screen on, it would
tell me there were columns and rows when they weren't there. So, I just
turned off that announcement.

As for outlook, do you mean the message rules are not accessible? Because
although I've never tried it out, it's certainly been an outlook feature
going back to the days of Windows 98 if not before. I've always had Office
though and Outlook is a part of that, sso local on my system.

When working with edge you constantly here the this page has so many columns
and so many rolls.
It is a huge headache.
You do not hear that garbage while using IE11.
I mainly use IE 11 for surfing the internet and or taking the advance online
ham radio emergency communication courses that the county wants us now to
take since they'll be changing the frequencies in our areas for the home
based 911 scanners that we enjoy listening to.
So, Microsoft still needs to work the bugs out of edge and what I also don't
like is the mail app is as follows.
Even though Microsoft dropped tech support for WLM in March of either 2017
or 2018.
I still use it for my main mail package.
I've tried out look because it's suppose to be like WLM, but it is tricky.
At least to me.
A ms disability operator recommended that I go out to And
try out look from there.
I haven't had the chance to do that just yet with these courses that the
county wants us to take.
But what I like about WLM is the following two features.
1. You can set message rules and or also known as message filters.
So, say I get a letter about JAWS, it will go into the jaws mailbox and my
in box will not over flow with mail.
2. I have two mailboxes with sub mailboxes in them.
Still if I set a rule and or filter the modem and rotter will see the
address and still ship it to the correct mailbox.
I understand that you can do the sub mailboxes but you still can not do the
filters and or rules still not yet.
I've tried out the mail app twice, and had MS tech support link up with me
and install it both times.
The first time I had to roll the clock back and the second time I called and
had them uninstall the mail package.
So there is my opinion on the Mail app, even though I know several blind
people are enjoying the MS mail app.
But I'm going to stay with the WLM mail app until they finally get all of
the bugs worked out of the ms mail app.
Just my two cents on this topic.
