Re: windows 10 Pro - Check for updates - NVDA goes silent in dialog with mouse over

Are you tabbing and shift tabbing through the dialogue. Knock on what ever is around you, I have not had this issue ever.  Are you also using object nav and or screen review? We can’t really “mouse over’ things.

I wanted to follow up on my previous message


I have noticed that when NVDA goes silent

If I press the tab key till I hear spoken feedback

Then the mouse over content speaking starts working


I confirmed this is still happening after the NVDA update that was just released.

Sometimes when I check for updates, after the dialog is presented,  NVDA will announce the last check for updates and then go silent

If I mouse over content in the dialog it remains silent

If I mouse over content outside the dialog it will be spoken.


If I restart NVDA it starts speaking content in the dialog with mouse over


Using a physical mouse connected via USB



While checking the NVDA version I noticed in the menu an entry that indicated install pending update

However, when I activate that entry the menu goes away and nothing seems to happen


When I go to help and check for updates it indicates there are none available


Thank you
