I cannot confirm the issue with the desktop icons. 2020.2 works just
as it should. The issue with read to end has been around for a
while. It seems to be dependent on a lot of things including length
of document, formatting and so on.
This is with Windowx 10 version 2004 Eloquence synth from AT Guys
SAPI 5 version.

I have just finally moved on from the NVDA 2019.2 version and
updated to the newest one. However now I'm having two problems
with it. I'm pretty sure that the first one has been already
mentioned in the group though in regard to a different version,
but can't find the topic for the life of me so apologies if this
1: I have the "Speak Typed Characters" option on most of the
time, and now after the update, when I'm on the desktop and
navigating to a specific icon by its first letter, NVDA will only
say the letter but not the name of the icon afterwards. I've heard
that this was a problem in the 2019.3 version with older speech
synths however I'm using Acapela (for Sapi5, not for NVDA) so was
quite surprised to see this problem. I turned the Speak Typed
Characters option off for now but if this is something I can fix
myself, I'd really appreciate any advice.
2: When using the NVDA+Down Arrow to read continuously, NVDA
will stop after a while. I assume that it stops when reaching the
end of a paragraph, or before a heading.
Are these just some bugs in this version that will be removed
later or is it something that I can get back to working properly
as someone who's not extremely techy? Do you guys have any
suggestions how to deal with this.
