2011.3 Release
Focus 40 Blue

via @silverleaf57

When turning speech mode OFF, braille will not work in in any application. With snapshot, pressing any key will beep and release will do nothing. It should be possible to use braille only with speech off.

Was working in 2011.1 and broke somewhere along the way. i.e. it's a regression.

you say beep, is it the error sound?
Would it be possible to provide a log?

Can't reproduce with either 2011.3 or latest main using a !HumanWare Brailliant (Baum driver), so it isn't braille in general. Please provide a log of the error.

Yes, error sound, and log is attached.

Okay. The user has their synthesiser set to "No speech". This is different to using speech mode off.

This is not related to braille. It will occur whenever the synthesiser is set to No speech with automatic language switching enabled. You can work around this by disabling automatic language switching in the Voice settings dialog.

Regression introduced by the auto language switching code.
Milestone changed from None to 2012.1
