[Nfbc-info] Free Email Preference

Hi Eileen,

I have attempted several times to simplify the Yahoo Mail web interface to
be easier to use with screen readers and magnifiers.  Unfortunately, in my
opinion it is worth either using an email software application (like
Outlook) with your Yahoo email account.  When it comes to the easiest email
web application, I believe that Gmail is the best.  You need, however, to
set up gmail for "basic HTML", and change some other settings.  While in
Gmail, click on Help, and search for Accessibility.

Best regards, Mark

Hello List Serve,

I am wondering if anyone uses Yahoo.com free email. So far, I am finding it
quite inaccessible to screen readers. Does anyone have some tips or is this
something to pursue to increase accessibility. I would like to know which
free email programs people are using and why in order to make proper
recommendations to my clients. I myself prefer GMAIL.
