NVDA not reading emoji in emoji panel

Christo de Klerk

Hello all

I used to be able to access emoji in the emoji panel you get by pressing Windows key plus period or Windows key plus semicolon, but for some reason NVDA does not read the emoji in that panel or the category names anymore. Narrator reads them perfectly, so I know they are there and I can use Narrator to insert emoji in my text.

Does anyone have any idea what could be causing NVDA to just say "blank" when I navigate around the emoji panel? Is there some setting that could be upsetting NVDA?

I am using NVDA version 2018.3 Beta 2 on a 32 bit Windows 10 machine with the latest Windows update. I have the latest version of Windows 10 App Essentials add-on installed and active.

I would appreciate your suggestions.

Kind regards
