Re: NVDA 2021.1 Beta 3 now available

Hi Naveen,

Re the "Close" button on the speech viewer, what is meant is that there is a close "X" button in the title bar of that window - so it can be closed with alt+f4 as you found.  There isn't a button control you can tab to.

Re not reading the unread message count in Outlook correctly, can you give me a bit more information please?  What IS it reading?

I just tried using the following, and it is correctly reading the unread message count here:

NVDA 2021.1beta3
Windows 10 (64-bit) Version: 2009, Build: 19043
Office 365 (64-bit) Version: 16.0.14026.20228

Both in the left hand tree view pane and in the control+y window.

Kind regards

Hi Quentin,


I downloaded and checked this version. One issue I found in MS outlook 2019. Total number of messages NVDA is saying wrong. So, I checked in other folders such as Drafts, sent, RSS etc. I found the same issue. Kindly check it once. Also I have read in the What’s new, speech viewer has close button. But, when I use tab in the speech viewer, I am not getting the close button. But, I am able to close it by pressing Alt + F4.
