Re: Two issues with the "Windows 10 App Essentials" add-on


 

Hello Joseph and others,

Sorry to revive this old threat, but I must, since I have an announcement to make about the raised by me issues in it.

And the announcement is a very good one. After updating Windows 10 App Essentials to version 17.02, the issue with not being able to read a mail message in the E-Mail app using the arrow keys is no longer present - now I can read a mail message with the arrow keys. I don't know what caused the issue and how it got fixed, but I'm happy that it's gone now. 😀

______
Best wishes,
Kostadin Kolev

Hi,
Calculator display: with the add-on turned off, if you move to places other than results box, you won't hear anything.
I may need to raise an issue in the tracker for this add-on to announce things like "sine" and "roots" if such shortcut keys were pressed (may not see the light of day until add-on 16.11 at the earliest).
Cheers,
Joseph

   <p>Hello Joseph,<br
     <br
     Yes, the version of the add-on is 16.10.</p
   About the "Calculator" app.  OK, if you think this is a better
   solution.  Though personally I'd prefer to hear all changes of the
   display, as it is the behavior without the add-on.<br

     <br
     Which add-on version are you using (16.10 perhaps)?
     <br
     Mail: Can anyone else confirm this? I can read messages using
     arrow keys. Note that due to changes introduced as part of Edge
     support work (next branch for now), I have disabled my workaround
     in Mail app.
     <br
     Calculator: this is intentional to keep user experience as similar
     to old Calculator program (also quite verbose to hear this
     information every time you enter something). Ideally NVDA should
     be able to announce characters you type, but unfortunately, we
     won't see a solution for a while.
     <br
     Due to events I'll be attending, I may not be able to maintain the
     add-on for the next few days; in the
     <br
     meantime, Derek Riemer will fill in my shoes. Thanks.
     <br
     Cheers,
     <br

     <br
     젨 Hello Joseph and all,&lt;br
     <br
     젨 &lt;br
     <br
     젨 I've noticed two issues while using the "Windows 10 App
     Essentials"
     <br
     젨 add-on:&lt;br
     <br
     젨 1. In the "Calculator" app, when I enter digits, NVDA does not
     <br
     젨 announce the change in the display. It announces the change
     only
     <br
     젨 after I press ENTER to get the result. If I disable the
     "Windows 10
     <br
     젨 App Essentials", the issue stops occurring.&lt;br
     <br
     젨 2. In the "Mail" app, I cannot read a message only by pressing
     UP or
     <br
     젨 DOWN arrows. I can read it only with "Say All". If I disable
     the
     <br
     젨 "Windows 10 App Essentials" add-on, the issue disappears and I
     can
     <br
     젨 read the message body with UP and DOWN arrows.&lt;br
     <br
     젨 &lt;br
     <br
     젨 Test environment:&lt;br
     <br
     젨 - Operating system: Windows 10 Pro (build 14393.222), 64-bit,
     in
     <br
     젨 Bulgarian with all locale settings set to "Bulgarian".&lt;br
     <br
     젨 - NVDA version: next-13616,d4743fcc, in bulgarian.&lt;br
     <br
     젨 - "Mail" app version: 17.7167.40817.0, in bulgarian.&lt;br
     <br
     젨 - "Calculator" app version: can't find it, but it should be the
     <br
     젨 latest from the apps store.&lt;br
     <br
     젨 &lt;br
     <br
     젨 If you need more information from me in order to be able to
     diagnose
     <br
     젨 the issue, please let me know and I'll try to help as best as I
     can.&lt;br
     <br
     젨 &lt;br
     <br
     젨 ______&lt;br
     <br
     젨 Best wishes,&lt;br
