The lady I have been talking to via email say what
happens goes like this.
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
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 hearing it.
Apparently I have seen 2 or 3 others on the list with the
same problem in the thread.

Therefore, if you change the description of a particular

can add, edit or remove symbol descriptions in NVDA's
punctuation/symbol pronunciation dialog.

Has any one had the following problem using outlook?
inserting a emoji when you go to read back what you
have typed in the
email it says 12 instead of the name of the emoji.

am going to get her to update nvda she might already

The below is what she said and I have no answer about
But, weirdly, when I select them and read back over
that spot it just
says 12 where each one is. Then if I send the e-mail
replies I can read them if I scroll down to my
original e-mail. Emojis
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my rather outdated 2013 version of outlook.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
