Really Microsoft need to sort this out I feel, sometimes in windows 7, I have no problems other times I have to resort to screen review, which sort of suggests that the way these messages are displayed is not always the same.

Hi John and others,

I normally don’t write the following, but this time…

I highly recommend listening to my tutorial set. If you listen to object navigation and popular apps sections, you’ll get the answer you need for navigating universal apps.

Cheers,

Joseph

I don't know but you might have saved a lot of time by using screen review or object navigation to skim the screen.



As far as messages in the actual center, I don't know about Windows 10. My recollection about Windows 7 is that you can't read messages either at all or well enough to be useful.

Hi all. Is there a way to read messages in things like action center and
setup in Windows 10? I have Windows App Essentials, latest stable
installed. Let me describe what I'm talking about, because I think that
will help.


Today I saw in the system tray that "actions are needed". So I opened it
up. It opened up Windows Defender. Windows Defender said I needed to
check for updates. But the only way I found that out was by using NVDA-b
to read the entire screen, so I had to listen to a lot of extra stuff
first. Is there a quicker way to find and read those kinds of messages?
