Hi All,


I am getting the silent treatment in outlook and notepad.  Is there a fix for this?  Thanks for any help.

Not sure if the windows esentuals add on will fix it but I know back a few versions of Windows 10 there had to be work done on the windows side to fix that problem.


I am pretty sure you are going to have to upgrade your version of windows so it speaks in those areas in windows mail.


There is a mention in the tutorial for windows mail and also Microsoft edge the older version of it.


The link to this page where it comes off is

When you get to the page jump down by heading until you get to the windows mail tutorial.


I am guessing you have a old er version of windows maybe 1803? I just can not remember when it got fixed.

Good morning listers.  Having trouble when writing a message in windows mail.  Nvda does not speak to me when I type; Tried notepad also and he speaks fine.  Have characters, words and speech on.  If anyone has suggestions of anything else I might try, thanks in advance.
