Re: Possible keyboard echo issues, can anyone confirm or deny, please?

This happens in Internet Explorer fields like Google Search as well.

By the keyboard issue, I now know you mean the issue of reading the
uncorrected text. But you already know you corrected it so why go through
all the trouble and time of uninstalling the old program, installing the new
program, importing the account or creating it, and learning the new layout?
If you want to do so, that's your decision but that's a lot of time to spend
to correct what I consider to be a very small problem. And if you want to
be sure you corrected a word as you intend, just move back to hear it with
control left arrow.
The cursor will be at the beginning of the word, as I expect you know and
what is actually on the screen will be spoken. then jump to the end of the
word with control right arrow. You should be back where you started. So if
you jump back a word after you write it and space, using control right arrow
will place you in position to write the next word.

Also, one person has indicated that in the anniversary edition of Windows
10, the mail app works much bbetter. It might make more sense to wait until
you are upgraded, download a current snapshot of NVDA and try the app. I
don't know what there may be to learn about using it but it can't be

1) No, it doesn't happen anywhere else. 2) When I send the email, it looks
fine, and it's fine when reading, too. 3) Yes, I can.

Can you confirm please:

1) Is this happening in any other program (eg notepad, Word etc)
2) Is the text actually being corrected (ie if you copy the text into say
notepad, is the letter you thought you deleted there or not)
3) Can you perform the same correction in other programs (eg notepad)

And yes, if anyone else is running the same setup and confirm whether they
are also having this issue, that would be great.

Hi All,
First, I can not be sure of this, as I have not played with it, so if
this is normal, please forgive me. But, if it is normal, it certainly is
annoying. But, in case it is not normal, here's what's happening.
I have installed windows live mail 2009, the one with the menus, on
windows 10. NVDA 2016.2.1, I think. I have tried this with the acapella
demo, and a few others. Now, say you're writing a message, and you make
spelling mistakes. For example, instead of an l, you write a k. No problem,
you backspace. But, at last, when you finish the word, and, press space,
speech will say hekloo or helklo, or wherever you got the k instead of the
l, instead of hello. In other words, despite the fact that I have deleted
k, the k is still pronounced by speech. I've not tried eSpeak yet, but,
honestly, when I played with outlook 2010 a little yesterday, I can't recall
outlook doing the same, and I have to admit, if it has, I'm pretty sure
others would have raised it by now.
So my questions:
1) Is this a bug, or normal?
2) Is there some sort of a work around, other than changing clients?
