When you arrow across the menu bar of the SuperNova Control Panel, the speech announces the number of the menu bar item and not the text of the menu item. Also, when typing in some edit areas including the Run dialog box, the speech announces “blank line”. Other areas are also affected but may vary.


This may occur on Windows 8 or 8.1 systems that have Kaspersky Internet Security installed. This problem has been replicated by Dolphin and at this time we would recommend using alternative antivirus software, the built in Windows Defender software or another offering such as AVG Antivirus.
