Re: NVDA saying unknown again in browsers

Thanks for the response!


Yes, I see that windows update has kicked off a problem like this in the past. So, Ill try out the advice on fixing the com registration and see how that goes. Failing that, I could back windows to a version prior to the latest update.



All the best,

Is possible that the Com Registration Fixing Tool work good.

But in the last versions of Windows 10, in somme cases, this tool work but NVDA says unknown, not read in the browser and other programs, and the user need restore Windows to default.

Just as in 2018 under issue #33784  NVDA says “unknown instead of reading any content in Firefox and Chrome. It does work in Edge. All latest version of windows 10, Firefox, Google Chrome, Easy keys, and NVDA 2020.1.


The earlier issue seemed to relate to a windows update but I don’t think there was an update in this case today.


Can anyone point to a solution? This problem began only about one week ago.
