Discovered while testing latest changes to language handler: description for Burmese is not picked up in Windows 7.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. On Windows 7, press Control+NVDA+G to open general settings panel.
  2. Go through languages list until you arrive at "user default".
  3. Press up arrow.

Actual behavior:

An entry named "my" is shown.

Expected behavior:

No such entry - Burmese is listed in its proper order.

System configuration:

NVDA Installed/portable/running from source:


NVDA version:

2018.2, beta, and alpha

Windows version:

Windows 7 SP1

Name and version of other software in use when reproducing the issue:


Other information about your system:

Tested on a virtual machine running Windows 7, as well as on a Windows 8.1 VM and a Windows 10 computer.

Other questions:

Does the issue still occur after restarting your PC?


Have you tried any other versions of NVDA?



kernel32.dll's LocaleNameToLCID does not recognize Burmese (my) on Windows 7 (returns 0), but is recognized on Windows 8 and later.

* Language handler: add Burmese manually as it is not included in Windows 7.

Burmese (my) is recognized starting with Windows 8. Because NVDA also runs on Windows 7, add this language manually.

* What's new: add bug fix entry for Burmese+Windows 7. Re #8544.
