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
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 hearing it.
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
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 after
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
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 will find
The below is what she said and I have no
answer about saying emoji
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 and someone
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
