Re: Progress bar does not read in Windows Defender

Hi Morné,

  1. Make sure progressbar announcement is enabled, hit NVDA-U to adjust it to your needs. By the way, for me object and screen navigation are working properly in this window.
  2. I have a super speed when composing mails in Outlook 365, maybe it helps to disable some document related items like spell checking and pages in the NVDA document formatting . You can get there with NVDA-Control-D

Subject: [nvda] Progress bar does not read in Windows Defender


Hello list,


I am running the latest versions of both Windows 10 and NVDA.


When a virus scan with Windows Defender is being performed, NVDA does not read the progress bar of the scan.  Is there a way to read the progress bar since object and screen review do not work.


Lastly, why is NVDA sluggish when typing in Microsoft 365? While I am typing this email, NVDA gets way behind my typing speed.


Kind regards to all and stay healthy.
