Re: About ui.message in NVDA 2019.3

Javi Domínguez


I have not found out the cause but I have limited the problem. It occurs only when the mouse button is locked.

In the following code:

        ui.message("Before pressing the button")
        ui.message("While the button is pressed")
        ui.message("After lifting the button")
Only the first message is spoken. However, if I delete the second line all are spoken.

Hi Javi,

This sounds suspicious, given the speech refactor work, there could indeed be changed behaviour here. Did you get to the bottom of why this occurs?

Subject: [nvda-devel] About ui.message in NVDA 2019.3


I am adapting an add-on for NVDA 2019.3 and I have noticed strange behavior at speak messages.

I have something like this:

x, y = winUser.getCursorPos()
ui.messages("cursor in %d,%d" % (x,y))
winUser.setCursorPos(a, b)
ui.message("Moved to %d,%d" % (a,b))

in 2019.2 and earlier all messages are spoken, as always, but in 2019.3 beta the first message is spoken but not the second or the following.

Is there any reason for this or is it perhaps a mistake?
