Re: NVDA 2020.2 doesn't read .NET comboboxes

I think there is another fix to the problem. We are using a library that detects screen readers, then allows us to speak anything we want. Maybe I will have it do that whenever the selected index for the combobox changes.

Hi,

Figured out what’s up – see another reply. It comes down to Microsoft’s stances on UIA value pattern.

Cheers,

Joseph

Yea, we are aware of the problem. I work with him on the project. Thought I would bring it up to you guys since it involved NVDA. In either case, launch the app. When it takes you to the avionics tab, press CONTROL+G to jump to the gages list. Once there, press down arrow. Nothing is spoken even though the selection changes.

Hi,

Is Jason aware of this issue? Also, we need an STR (steps to reproduce), because when I run this from Version 20H2 (build 19042.450) with NVDA latest alpha build installed, it only prompts a UAC dialog and nothing else (of course I had to let SmartScreen know that this is a safe application).

Cheers,

Joseph

Could you post a compilable sample?
