Re: NVDA keeps announcing "Pane"!

No, NVDA just says "Pane" and when it does this for example when I want to gain focus of a list of emails in the Inbox I can't just use the arrow keys to move through those mails, I have to press "tab key" and "Shift + tab" to come back to the list of emails first.
This behaviour can also happen when I try and alt tab to windows such as Internet explorer etc.


I use the free version of Spam Reader to get rid of spam. The Professional version doesn't have this disclaimer in outgoing emails.

Does it announce the names of the windows as you alt+tab or just read "pane"? Have you noticed it anywhere else?

Hi All,

I have been trying to find out the cause of why NVDA on two of my computers
keeps announcing "Pane" whenever I alt + tab between windows. Is this a
normal thing for NVDA to do or can it be somehow stopped. It becomes
annoying after some time of moving between windows.
I am using two computers with Windows 7 on both.
Any suggestions would be welcome.

Many thanks,
