I really like thunderbird too. The only thing I don't know how to do is create message rules or filters with it yet.

I use thunderbird, it works well and has a web interface it hardly crashes.
It uses the firefox/ chrome engine and it just works.
My issue with outlook 2016 is that it will happily lock nvda while viewing the inbox table especially with large messages or for unknown reasons.
Thunderbird just works, but on the other hand its the only client still in development that I can use right now.
If you don't care about security and want to see if it works with you, eudora 7.0 the last comercial version of eudora before it went opensource works a bit of hit and miss with nvda but will work with other things.
Thunderbird works with nvda but I am not sure about others.
I havn't needed to bother with anything else now I use thunderbird.
If you have issues with thunderbird you can try eudora ose, this is not developed anymore in fact its insecure as it uses the 3.x thunderbird engine and stopped development a year after it came on stream.
Thunderbird is like firefox, it could be outlook like but out of the box comes with a callendar app called lightning which you can turn off and mail
You can optionally add everything from add blockers through to search engines, chat services, callendars and the like but its simple out the box.
Add the modules you want.

You can, according to what I remember, use screen review commands to see the
misspelled word when using the spell checker in Microsoft Word. Again, as I
recall, you can't when using Outlook 2016. Is there any particular reason
you want to use Outlook for e-mail? There are other clients that don't have
this problem.

I will be trying out the spell check function when I go and use word. If I
have to arrow down through the document, I hope I don't have a lot of pages
to go over since that will be a tedious process.

We'll see what happens.

The question is how to hear the misspelled word when running the spell
checker, not while typing. I'm not know if using the screen review commands
can read this word. I seem to recall this being discussed before and it was
determined that the Outlook 2016 spell checker can't be used to identify the
misspelled word. I may be wrong but I have a pretty strong memory that that
proved to be the case when more than one person experimented with the

However, if you have misspelled words flagged while typing, as you suggest,
how would you then get a replacement without running the spell checker? Can
you use the context menu while on the misspelled word?

Hi, William,

Hit insert control D to go to document formatting. Tab to the box that says
"report spelling errors" and check it with the space bar. Then tab to the ok
button and hit the space bar. To save the configuration,, hit insert control
C. That will save your setting.

Hope this helps.

Hello everybody:

I've just started playing with NVDA on a Windows 10 machine. So far
everything has been going along just fine.

I use Outlook 2016 and NVDA seems to work just fine. However, I've noticed
that when I want to do some spell checking, I press the F7 key to start the
spell correction.

NVDA will tell me that there is a spelling error, but I don't know how to
have it tell me what word is wrong.

The only way I can try and figure it out is to go to the suggestions list
and try to figure it out from there.

IS THERE A KEY Stroke I can perform to get NVDA to tell me what word is
wrong? Where in the documentation is or are these key strokes mentioned?
