moderated FW: Jaws 2021 and emoji panel
Again, when I read the message in the sent folder, it reads the emoji just fine.
But not while composing.

I tried SAPI 5 and Eloquence and they read the emoji just fine.
I went back to my default of Tom enhanced from Vocalizer and it read it when I re-read a sent message.
Then, I just added one here and it just says 12.
This is a synthesizer issue, and unless JAWS is told to process certain Unicode symbols directly and send them to synths, it won’t be able to read emojis and some Unicode symbols correctly.
I find I have to use Narrator to arrow through the emoji panel, and after picking one, Narrator reads the emoji just fine.
Jaws 2021 reads a number.
I sent a note to a friend who has a great job at a place where it is not uncommon for the office to go out for a drink at 3 PM to end the day. So I used the whiskey glass emoji. Narrator reads it accurately. Jaws 2021 says “twelve.”
Any thoughts about how Jaws can be made to speak the emoji?
