The lady I have been talking to via email say what happens goes
she goes into outlook and does a new email. In the body of the
email she will type up some stuff. If then she uses the Windows
key + . to bring up the emoji panel when she arrows around the
emojis are spoken out correctly She presses the enter key on the
one she wants it is then inserted into the email. Then she will
press the escape key to close the panel So if she types more and
then adds more text and emojis it is not until it is when she
goes to review the email it says 12 in place of the emoji.
So the example would be I saw a emoji police car today and a fire
emoji engine down the street.
The word emoji is not spoken out but it was more to let you know
it was in the email.
so when she goes to read it back with the arrow keys she gets the
following in the email.
So the example would be I saw a 12today and 12down the street.
She is using Windows 10 and nvda 2021.2. I think she said it also
happened in word when she went to review the document where she
had inserted them.
Those settings were checked you gave. I have told her what to do
about setting to debug level recreating the problem in the program
and sending me back the log so I can do a ticket.
She said when some one sends her a email with emojis in it they
are spoken out correctly but not in the part where you type stuff
inserting a emoji then reading back the email to send it that is
where the problem is. She does not have a braille display she is
Apparently I have seen 2 or 3 others on the list with the same
problem in the thread.

On the voice settings page (NVDA+control+v) you
want to enable "Include Unicode Consortium data (including
emoji) when processing characters and symbols"
"When this checkbox is checked, NVDA will include
additional symbol pronunciation dictionaries when pronouncing
characters and symbols. These dictionaries contain
descriptions for symbols (particularly emoji) that are
provided by the Unicode Consortium as part of their Common
Locale Data Repository. If you want NVDA to speak descriptions
of emoji characters based on this data, you should enable this
option. However, if you are using a speech synthesizer that
supports speaking emoji descriptions natively, you may wish to
turn this off.
Note that manually added or edited character descriptions are
saved as part of your user settings. Therefore, if you change
the description of a particular emoji, your custom description
will be spoken for that emoji regardless of whether this option
is enabled. You can add, edit or remove symbol descriptions in
NVDA's punctuation/symbol pronunciation dialog.
To toggle Unicode Consortium data inclusion from anywhere,
please assign a custom gesture using the Input Gestures dialog."
Has any one had the following problem using outlook? when
inserting a emoji when you go to read back what you have typed
email it says 12 instead of the name of the emoji.
They are using windows 10 not sure which version yet and to
make sure I
am going to get her to update nvda she might already have I
The below is what she said and I have no answer about saying
But, weirdly, when I select them and read back over that spot
says 12 where each one is. Then if I send the e-mail and
replies I can read them if I scroll down to my original
from other people are reading fine.
Is this a setting I need to change in NVDA or is it something
to do with
my rather outdated 2013 version of outlook. And can I set
NVDA to say
emoji when it reads one so I know it isn’t part of the text if
it is a
