moderated Re: Extra Verbiage in the November 2021 JAWS 2021 Update When Using Alt+Tab to Cycle Between All Running Applications

I can also confirm that by each alt+tab, I can hear: "task switching,
running applications list box, 2 of 15" announcement. Yet, after the
first message, one navigating by alt+tab by holding on the Alt key
would not hear it, unless leave the Alt, and start alt+tabbing again.

Subject: Extra Verbiage in the November 2021 JAWS 2021 Update When Using
Alt+Tab to Cycle Between All Running Applications

I'm not sure if others have noticed this problem. I will say that this does
not affect any of the JAWS 2022 betas or the final version.
With the latest update for JAWS 2021 I am noticing some extra wording when
holding down the alt key and repeatedly pressing the tab key to navigate
through running applications. When you first press this key combination JAWS
will say ""task switching, running applications list box." I have noticed
this behavior on two different computers, both of which are running Windows
10 version 21 H1.
This behavior does not occur if you press and then release alt+tab to open
the last application which had focus.
I have reported this to Vispero support but they were unable to duplicate
the problem.
