Re: messages aren't read out automatically in the mail app



An earlier version of this bug was fixed a while ago, but resurfaced after Windows 10 Mail’s executable file was renamed this year. I deployed a fix in Windows 10 App Essentials add-on back in February this year but waited for the new app to go live for everyone in summer before sending an official fix to NV Access for review. The next NVDA version in development (2020.4) will come with a built-in fix.

Are you using NVDA?  If so, are you using the latest rc that just came out?  I this was fixed inthe bata cycle not sure as I do not have the rc installed and do not rely on the mail app.

Hi, everyone,


I’m trying the mail app. I was using thunderbird but it became sluggish so I decided to try the mail app again. I used to be able to hit enter on a message and it would be read out automatically. Has something changed? Now I have to go to the top of the message, hit insert down-arrow and I can read the message. How can I get messages to read out automatically in the mail app?


Thanks for your help in advance.
