steps to reproduce

  • write a word in one of the edit fields
  • press "numpad delete" on any character you typed

    actual results

  • NVDA speaks nothing

    expected results

NVDA must announce a next character, as it does with "extended" delete key.

This could be fixed by simply binding "Delete" to script_delete, ("ExtendedDelete" is already bound). However this would have to be done in many places: edit, scintilla, uia, JAB, IAccessible2... blablabla. If someone wants to do it that is fine.
However, I don't think the issue is that important as the numberpad is really used just for NVDA, in the future we may want to use the numpad delete key for something NVDA-specific.
Also moving it out of 0.6 for now.
Milestone changed from 0.6 to None
