how to get mazilla thunderbird to tell me there is an attachment in A message when looking threw my messages in my inbox

In my opinion there need to bee good scripts written for thunderbird like for Outlook. I don't think you can get it to automatically tell you.

Subject: [jaws-users] how to get mazilla thunderbird to tell me therer is an attachment in A meesage when looking threw my messages in my inbox

hi I have A message in my inbox that has an attachment.

And when I was using outlook 2016 and Jaws 2019 it would tell me that the message had an attachment with it.

When I was going threw my inbox.

But now i am going threw using thunderbird and Jaws doesn't tell me that A message has an attachment.

How do I make this tell me that the message or messages have an attachment while I am going threw my messages in my inbox just like?

I have the preview pain turned off and so what else can I set or change to make this work the way I would like it to?

I once had this problem in one of the eMail programs I have used, might have been OE.
What I did was to find the graphic number that was different when I arrowed over the message, and route the Jaws cursor to that number, you want it right on the number.
All the non-attachment messages will say graphic something and the one with the attachment will have a graphic different number.
So when the Jaws cursor is there, do insert + G and that will bring up the graphics editor.
It is just like the dictionary manager, it asks you to enter something for the graphic.
I just put in the word attachment.
So instead of hearing it say graphic 204 or whatever number it is, it will say attachment.
HTH.

Hi All,
 
See if this helps:
 
 
Configuration Options for Attachments
 
This page describes Thunderbird's configuration options for attachments.
 
Specify where attachments are saved
 
Menu location: Tools > Options > Attachments
 
Configure what happens when I click on attachments
 
Menu location: Tools > Options > Attachments
 
Allow me to view "hidden" attachments
 
There is a special view mode for messages which allows you to see all of a message's attachments, even "hidden" ones, in its attachments list.
 
Because this view mode is not needed by most users and could be confusing to some, it is disabled by default. To enable it, install the
"Show All Body Parts" add-on, link below.
 

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go dodgers!
I believe that everything happens for a reason. Usually, the reason is that somebody screwed up.

Hi I installed the show all body parts.

But can't seem to get it to work with my latest version of thunderbird.

I pasted it in the extensions folder and I don't see any menu setting for it.

So do i have to restart Jaws as well?

I would just route the Jaws to the PC when you are on top of the graphic, or in the example I gave, on top of the closed eMail message.
Then use the number pad to move the Jaws cursor, or the jaws navigation keys like Jaws key and J K L to to move the jaws cursor.
Stop on the graphic number that is representing what needs to be labeled and then do Insert + G to label the graphic.

Hello ,


I'v never installed a plug-in. I think the attachments  are already there. What I needed to do is have a sighted person re-order the headers and place the attachment  column at the beginning before the from field. I know we can drag and drop with jaws but it's a pain. Re-ordering the columns were alot easier with outlook express and maybe some others.

The best way that I have found is to get a sighted person to drag and drop them in the order that you want. I  call microsoft accessibility and let them do it. A sighted person can do it  in  less than 2 minutes. As I said, I know we  have a method with jaws to drag and drop but it's not easy. I wish there was an ottion in thunderbird in the view menu to choose  the columns you want and also arrange them the way you want. If there is I can't find it.


I like the columns in this order.

1 attachment

2. from

3. subject

4. date and time

Hi Gary & All,
 
Have you tried these steps in the past?
 
From: adam morris
 
Columns & Headings, How To Fix The Mouse Cursor Problem
 
see below how to do this and more with Jaws and NVDA.
 
These are the three steps needed to fix the mouse cursor problem.
 
The third step is the new one.  You do have to arrow down many times to find it.  A lot do seem to sound the same, so be careful you get the correct one
 
to change:
 
1. Open the Configuration Editor. In Firefox, enter
 
about:config
 
 in the address bar. In Thunderbird, go to the Tools menu and navigate to Options, Advanced, General, then Config Editor.
 
2. Once in the Configuration editor, press TAB until you are in the list of options.
 
3. Pressing UP or DOWN ARROW will move you between options or typing the first few letters of an option's name will move you to a specific option in the
list.
 
the following are entries to search for:
 
 
gfx.direct2d.disabled
 
if the boolean value is set to false, press the enter key to toggle the value to true.
 
 
layers.acceleration.disabled
 
if the boolean value is set to false, press the enter key to toggle the
 
value to true.
 
 
layers.offmainthreadcomposition.enabled
 
if the boolean value is set to true, press the enter key to toggle the
 
value to false.
 
press control+w to close the configuration window.
 
restart Thunderbird/Firefox.
 
Column presentation
 
Go to the message list.
 
go to the very top of it with the home key.
 
enable touch cursor,
 
now go left until you hear select columns to display... button.
 
Press enter. This opens the menu allowing you to check and uncheck columns.
 
If you want to rearrange the columns, go left past that button and you'll find the header items like subject and the like. Find the one you want to move,
 
press the keystroke to lock mouse button, with laptop layout that would be shift caps lock num row 8. then left or right to the colum you'd like to place
 
this before and press the mouse lock toggle again. Note that the columns are read in the same order regardless of their actual position when using touch
 
cursor. You'll have to try to move it, then go back to pc cursor and navigate the list of messages to see if you did it. If it fails, try dragging other
 
columns around the one want to move instead and see if that works. It's a bit messy but can be done with a little time and a big dose of patients.
 
Once you have a folder set up, you may want to assign that folder's column view settings to all folders, this is available in that button that says choose
 
which columns to display near the bottom says something like apply to folder, you can apply it to your entire email account that way if you want to.
 
 
Editing spelling dictionary
 
 
In the profile directory there is a file persdict.dat. You can edit that with notepad and remove any words. You need to restart Thunderbird to affect the
 
changes.
 
 
Editing spelling dictionary.
 
 
Open a new message.
 
Check spelling.
 
Tab to edit,
 
Then you will find the dictionary,
 
Tab to remove.
 
 

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go dodgers!

I pasted it in the extensions folder and I don't see any menu setting for it.

So do i have to restart Jaws as well?

Hi All,
 
See if this helps:
 
 
Configuration Options for Attachments
 
This page describes Thunderbird's configuration options for attachments.
 
Specify where attachments are saved
 
Menu location: Tools > Options > Attachments
 
Configure what happens when I click on attachments
 
Menu location: Tools > Options > Attachments
 
Allow me to view "hidden" attachments
 
There is a special view mode for messages which allows you to see all of a message's attachments, even "hidden" ones, in its attachments list.
 
Because this view mode is not needed by most users and could be confusing to some, it is disabled by default. To enable it, install the
"Show All Body Parts" add-on, link below.
 

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go dodgers!
I believe that everything happens for a reason. Usually, the reason is that somebody screwed up.

In my opinion there need to bee good scripts written for thunderbird like for Outlook.  I don't think you can get it to automatically tell you.

hi I have A message in my inbox that has an attachment.

And when I was using outlook 2016 and Jaws 2019 it would tell me that the message had an  attachment with it.

When I was going threw my inbox.

But now i am going threw using thunderbird and Jaws doesn't tell me that A message has an attachment.

How do I make this tell me that the message or messages have an attachment while I am going threw my messages in my inbox just like?

I have the preview pain turned off and so what else can I set or change to make this work the way I would like it to?
