Re: The windows 10 emoji panel

Oh that is clever!
To be honest I'm in two minds about these characters as often even if they get read as what they are descriptively, the way people use them makes the resulting text a complete heap of rubbish in any case.

I tend not to use them myself in any kind of system and usually i send back a slightly sarcastic message about what was wrong with English.

In the meantime, a quicker way to change synthesizers is NVDA+control+s.
Then either use the navigation keys or letter to jump to the desired
syntehsizer and enter.

I was going to suggest making a configuration profile for the emoji window,
but it disappears when you open the configuration profile window to create

As I said, this will all change very soon, so stay tuned.

Man, I take back what I said about having to start narrator to read the
pane being annoying. Having to go in to NVDA menu, then preferences,, then
settings, then speech, then change synthesizer just to read the emojis and
then change it all back again is way way more steps to take.
It's easier just to start Narrator then turn Narrator off afterwords.

But thank you all for the info. The Microsoft voices do read them fine,
but sadly, I'm not using that as my main NVDA synth. I'm using Eloquence.

hello, your speech synthesizer is guilty of that.
the narrator already does not support the emoji!
nvda does.
if a good speech synthesizer is used.
the commercial speech synthesizers do not do it any, very striking.
the onecore voices and also espeak will say the emoji's correctly!
very very strange that the commercial speechsynthesizers don't do it
at all!
the free synthesizers like the onecore voices from microsoft and
espeak are exelent!
