I tried Window-Eyes briefly with:
* Chandler Desktop, 1.0.3
* Sunbird, Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:184.108.40.206)
Window-Eyes seemed to prevent a most basic task in Sunbird: the separate
window that shows detail can open, but can not stay in foreground. There was
rapid repetitive swapping between windows, repetitive speech until I logged
off from Windows (difficult to exit from Window-Eyes in that state).
Also, <https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=553159> notes that menus
in Sunbird are incomplete.
Without testing further: I guess that Chandler Desktop, Sunbird and various
other software titles are currently not well suited to Window-Eyes.
Mozilla Lightning (added to Thunderbird), seemed better behaved with
Next guess: a well-designed web interface could be ideal.
I wondered about Zimbra Desktop, but that fails to install properly on my
computer so I can't test.
