Re: is there some setting that controls this?


 

Hi,
This is due to the way task switching window is presented to NVDA - visually, it is a table.
Cheers,
Joseph

Why does it matter? If you alt tab through running programs, you'll get to the one you want. I' not saying it doesn't matter, but I don't understand where it would.

Hi all,
I had to use Narrator to get me out of a tight spot yesterday, and I've noticed this in previous experiences as well. Narrator, and every other screen reader on Windows 7, gave the alt+tab list as a number out of total programs, for example Windows Media Player 2 of 3. Now on 10, Narrator is the only screen reader that does this. Everything else I've used with Windows 10 says "Windows Media Player row 1 column 2."
To me this is not useful at all, because I have no idea how many rows there are, or how many columns are in a row. Is there a way to change the way NVDA announces this?
Bob
