Mintty is a terminal based on Putty for [[http://msys2.sourceforge.net/|Msys2]]
Currently, NVDA does not read the appearing text automatically.

Due to the relationship between Putty and Mintty, slightly modifying the Putty app module solves this issue.

Thanks for the code.

I tested mintty and noticed that it behaves the same as PuTTY in some other (problematic) respects as well. Therefore, I took a different approach and inherited from the PuTTY app module so mintty will benefit from any future enhancements made there without needing to duplicate them.
