Re: Windows 10 App Essentials 18.07.1 #addonrelease


Hi everyone,

Windows 10 App Essentials 18.07.1A is now available, fixing an issue in modern Calculator where NVDA kept announcing “heading 1” or similar as part of calculation results, caused by XAML markup. Note that Narrator does announce this as heading level 1, so in theory, this announcement is correct; however, for backward compatibility reasons, this announcement has been suppressed in NVDA.

Hi all,


Windows 10 App Essentials 18.07.1 is now available, bringing two significant changes:


  • In Edge and other apps powered by EdgeHTML rendering engine, aria-role=alert is properly recognized. This means alert text will be announced as a live region.
  • NVDA will be less verbose when browsing emojis in Insider build 17704, caused by two events being fired by this panel when emoji selection changes.


As always, the new version is just an update check away. More info about this version can be found at:


Note: both changes will be part of pull requests and/or a future NVDA next branch snapshot depending on pull request process milestones (review, approval, incubation).
