ZoomText Hotkeys not working for AppReader & DocReader


When ZoomText is enabled, the shortcuts for AppReader (Alt + Shift + A) and DocReader (Alt + Shift + D) do not work. Changing the hotkeys doesn’t help either but you are able to manually launch the readers by clicking on their icon in ZoomText.
