Speech and magnification not working in Command Prompt and PowerShell console windows.

Wham you type into Windows Command Prompt or PowerShell consoles; the speech output is not working correctly and magnification does not track.

This is an issue which is currently being investigated. In the meantime, a workaround is to do as follows:

  1. In the Command Prompt window press ALT+SPACEBAR to open its system menu
  2. Choose the option “Option”.

  3. Turn on the option “Use legacy console (requires relaunch)” check box.
  4. Choose “OK


The next time you launch a command prompt the cursor should then be tracked properly.
