Extraneous text in Windows Settings after 1809 upgrade


Chris Mullins
 

Hi

I have just upgraded from Windows 1803 to 1809 and now when I use the ~Windows Settings app I hear the following :

 

CN=Microsoft Windows, O=Microsoft Corporation, L=Redmond, S=Washington, C=US

 

It sounds like the type of thing a developer would put into a program when debugging to check variable contents at a particular point in execution.  Does anyone else get this?

 

Cheers

Chris

Same here. Seems to be system-specific, though, as it does not happen
for all installations of 1809. Most curious.
Best,

Hi,
A few weeks ago someone sent me a debug log of this problem, and it appears it is a live region text that is being read by NvDA. I can't reproduce this on my systems running 1809 and later, but that doesn't mean I have forgotten about this problem.
Cheers,
Joseph

Makes me wonder why that live region would be present on some systems
but not others. Windows can be interesting.

Hi all,


I get the problem on some machines and not on some others.

Here, it seems that it does not happen on machines that have drectly been setup with 1809, but happen on those which have got to 1809 by upgrading previous versions.

But 5 machines are not enough to make sure.

No mine got an upgrade, not direct of 1809. My machine is from origin though. It's hand made, well customized anyway

Hi,
Onmy Pc,with "windows+i" , I ear also  this words.
I don't think it's a live   region. It's the name of a static window.
This is the windows hierarchy:

niveau 1   windowClass: ApplicationFrameTitleBarWindow, name: Paramètres, role: fenêtre, description: , value: Paramètres   windowClass: Windows.UI.Core.CoreWindow, name: CN=Microsoft Windows, O=Microsoft Corporation, L=Redmond, S=Washington, C=US, role: fenêtre, description: , value: None  réduit  2 sur 4  niveau 1
 windowClass: ApplicationFrameTitleBarWindow, name: Paramètres, role: fenêtre, description: , value: Paramètres  3 sur 4  niveau 1
 windowClass: ApplicationFrameInputSinkWindow, name: None, role: inconnu, description: None, value:   4 sur 4  niveau 1

Cheers.

This text that NVDA reads, it seems to be gone from my machine today. Maybe a windows update fixed it?

These are part of a directory service or such. Both Active Directory and LDAP use these types of fields, and in Outlook/Exchange you can find something similar in the list of alternative addresses for a e-mail.
Quoting below from: Stack Overflow 
https://stackoverflow.com/questions/18756688/what-are-cn-ou-dc-in-an-ldap-search



  • CN = Common Name
  • OU = Organizational Unit
  • DC = Domain Component

These are all parts of the X.500 Directory Specification, which defines nodes in a LDAP directory.

I get this as well, I don't yet find it annoying enough to reformat yet but I did it on another machine and it did fix the problem.
