In latest Skype, when typing an introductory message in the edit field before sending a contact authorization request, NVDA behaves incorrectly:

  1. It echoes not only the character typed (as it is set on my machine), but after that repeats the whole written text in the text field.
  2. Text review with the arrow keys and text selection produces no speech feedback.

Steps to reproduce it:

  1. Open Skype.
  2. Go to the "Add a contact" button and activate it.
  3. Type a name for an existing Skype account and then press TAB a few times, to go to the list of search results.
  4. In the list, select the desired account and press Enter on it, to open its conversation window. The focus lands on the "Add to Contacts" button - activate it.
  5. In the edit field named "Introductory message" that opens, start typing something and then try reviewing it with the arrow keys.

Expected results: NVDA should speak only the typed characters, without repeating the whole text content of that text field. And text review should be possible with the arrow keys, as well as reporting of text selection.
Actual results: NVDA echoes not only the characters typed, but the whole text content of the text field on each character entered. And text review with the arrow keys produces no speech feedback - the characters are not read. Text selection is not echoed either.

My system specifications:

  1. NVDA version: next-9985,6740b92, but it happens with 2013.3RC3 and 2013.2 as well (NVDA is in bulgarian in all cases).
  2. Skype version: 6.11.0.102, but it happened with 6.10 (and 6.9, I think). I'm not sure if it happened with earlier versions of Skype - hadn't had the chance to test it. Again - the app is set to bulgarian for its interface).
  3. Windows 7 Ultimate SP1, 32-bit, with regional locale and language settings set to bulgarian.

P.S.: If you need a NVDA log for this issue, let me know and I'll provide it.

In Skype for desktop, when entering an introductory message to add a contact, entering and moving through the text now works correctly.

TAccessibleRichEdit was mapped to RichEdit20.
