Composable Shell/cloud clipboard: clipboard status is not announced when there are no items to be pasted #9103
NOte: due to changes introduced to emoji panel in Windows 10 19H1 build 18305, along with Compsable Shell hosting other features such as cloud clipboard, I'll refer to "emoji panel" as Composable Shell.
The following issue arose due to oversight from 2018.3 days - resolved in Windows 10 App Essentials add-on: cloud clipboard paste won't announce things when there is nothing to be pasted.
Windows 10 October 2018 Update (build 17763) introduces cloud clipboard, a way to synchronize clipboard data between devices and paste items from the clipboard. The user interface is powered by Composable Shell (WindowsInternal.ComposableShell.Experiences.TextInput.InputApp.exe) and resembles a list of items to be pasted.
When the computer starts, the clipboard is empty. If so, Composable Shell displays a status message. At the moment NVDA does not announce this, caused by changes to the interface/UIA tree in later Version 1809 development builds.
Steps to reproduce:
Prerequisite: Windows 10 Version 1809 (build 17763) must be installed.
No announcement when clipboard is empty.
NVDA says, "your clipboard is empty".
NVDA installed/portable/running from source:
Windows 10 Version 1809 (build 17763)
