moderated Re: Windows emoji picker


using JAWS 2020, I noticed that pressing Windows+period or Windows+semicolon doesn't announce that the emoji picker window is open, but arrowing down and then up, it is announced, 😊 selected. Selected contain 44 items." so how do I navigate to those other 44 items?

What works for me.

Enter on the one you want.

Hit escape to get out of the list.

Then it should be in your Email.

Send as usual.

Thank you for this. I didn’t ask the question, but I paid attention to
your answer. But how do I actually select the one I want to enter? I
can’t seem to activate any particular one.

By default emoji panel shows recently used emojis. You can press Tab to
move between emojis and categories, then from categories list, use left
or right arrows to move between categories such as (most recently used”,
“people”, “celebrations and objects” and what not and press Enter to
activate a given category. Emoji panel will remember your category
selection the next time you open it.

With the Windows key + ., I get a short list of emojis, but there are
obviously many more.  Is there some web page or other option?  Or, is
there some way to expand the short emoji list I got from windows + .?

If you use the Windows-Period, it will take you into a list of them.
This is in Word.

Hello All,

How do I find the Windows list of emoji symbols, and use JAWS to insert
that into a text box?
