Windows 10 build 14366: Toasts are not announced #6096
A user using Insider build 14366 reports that toasts are no longer announced.
Expected: NVDA announces toasts.
Technical: NVDA's UIA handler has a map of which UIA events corresponds to NVDA events. This map does not contain window open event, yet tooltip open event is assigned to alert event. We don't want to listen to window open event, as it causes a flood of events to come through, especially for objects that we do not wish to announce. One workaround would be to tell NVDA that certain windows are safe, thereby allowing window open event from objects such as toasts to be accepted. All this changes if Microsoft fixes this before Anniversary Update (Version 1607) is released (feedback sent to Microsoft).
… timer. re nvaccess#6096 In Redstone, one can set priority to notifications, and if this happens, automation ID changes to PriorityToastView. To handle both normal and high priority toasts, use substrings.
