Re: nvda doesn't announce the start menu after pressing the windows key

Well although I get the start menu OK on windows 7 I am increasingly getting it on folder opening, which it never did prior to the latest version of nvda but I do have a number of newer add ons since add on updater was installed and without any kind of evidence yet, I might suggest its one or more of the new add ons.

Hi.

I’ve been experiencing this issue ever since my machines received build 17763.

Very odd.

I believe I have the same issue. In fact I think I saw it yesterday. I have the essentials add o installed if that makes a difference, which it probably does not. I hope it is a fluke for both of us.

Running windows 10 1809. I have to look up the nvda version but it is the latest beta build, that much I know.

Hey guys, Molly here again.

For some reason 99 percent of the time Nvda doesn’t announce that I’m on the start menu when I press the windows logo key. I press it and Nvda says nothing at all. It’s happening on both machines. It’s frustrating because I’m needing to access different folders and I want to search for them using the start menu.

Do you have any ideas on what could be causing this?

Running windows 10 home, build 17763 on both machines.

Thanks.
