Re: NVDA 2018.4-Beta 1 doesn't read emojis for me.

John Isige

OK, let's see if this works. No, if I shift tab from most recent I get "search emoji", then continuing to shift tab I get the categories like "transportation", but if I use the arrows, it just does "1 of 250" and so on.

I just noticed now when you are on the recent one if you shift/tab now it gives you the categories where now you right or left arrow to them then press the enter key on the one you want then shift tab or tab to get to the list of them. it seems to be speaking mine out correctly.

it seems like a slight modification to the tutorial.

Just tested the beta, and it doesn't read emojis, at least for me, with any synthesizer. I get X of Y, e.g. 1 of 50, 2 of 50, and so on. This happens even with the one-core voices, which used to read more emojis than any other synthesizer. This happens whether the copy is installed or portable. Windows 10 64-bit, latest upates, not 1809 though. Here's the log from when I try to get to an emoji to put into this message in Thunderbird.
