Unigram is a powerful Telegram client for Windows that helps you to use telegram on your computer. However, using Unigram with the Screen Reader may be difficult at times as it does not include any shortcuts by default. Unigram Plus is a powerful addon for NVDA screen reader that includes a lot of hotkeys that make Unigram easier and more efficient to use. It also includes several small enhancements to the way Unigram operates, making it more accessible, user-friendly, and simpler to use.

Why not try it out? Perhaps you'll be surprised at how much it can improve your Telegram experience on Windows!

User Experience Enhancements:

  • Improved the display of messages, making them easier to read and understand.
  • Prevented distraction while viewing messages or chats, making them easier to focus on by removing extra spoken feedback such as Chats, Tab, List, etc, and staying engaged in the conversation.
  • The name and size of the file will be announced when the cursor is focused on the Open or Download File button.
  • On focusing an audio file, its name and duration will be announced.
  • While listening to a voice message, first the time of its playback will be announced, followed by any other pertinent information.
  • When focusing on a message about the call, the duration of that call will be announced.
  • When focusing on a selected message in a chat, it will first inform about the message selection, and then the content of the message.
  • On focusing a message unread by recipient, "unread" will be announced followed by content of the message. In other case only the content of the message will be read.
  • Improved the way voice messages are recorded.
  • Added the sound notification when Recording, sending, and canceling a voice message. Also, when performing these functions, the focus remains in its position and does not jump to either the record button or the message input field.
  • After closing a media embed in the message, the focus will return to the last element that was in focus.
  • Ability to disable announcements of all progress bars, as well as specific to message playing progress.
