Do you absolutely need the Windows subsystem for Linux to accomplish
your goals? Can you accomplish what you need through PowerShell, the
Cygwin terminal, MSYS, or Git BASH?

I’ve been trying to use NVDA 2018.2.1 in terminal applications such as
the Windows Subsystem for Linux. The BrailleExtender add-on is loaded,
and highly desirable. It’s configured by default to ensure that the
braille display tracks the review position in terminal applications.
Unfortunately, the review position isn’t following the system cursor.
Thus, for example, if I issue a command that generates several lines on
the terminal, and the cursor moves to the new prompt that immediately
follows this output, the review position isn’t moved forward with it.
All of the NVDA preferences related to navigation seem to be set
correctly as far as I can tell (I haven’t changed them from the
defaults, as it’s a new installation on an up to date Windows 10 version
Have I neglected to change a setting, or is there a deeper problem here?
Suggestions about likely causes and solutions would be most welcome.
