Re: NVDA concerns

NVDA does work with Microsoft Office, including the most recent Office 2016 / 365, and the latest update (the release candidate is available now and the final version is due out next week) includes some more fixes and updates for Microsoft Office, particularly Word and Excel this time.
Regarding voices, while NVDA comes with eSpeak, it is worth trying the "Microsoft Speech API Version 5" voices which come with Windows (particularly Windows 7 or later) as they are often suitable. Press NVDA+CONTROL+S to open the synthesizer dialog to change synthesizers (The NVDA key is usually Insert unless you set it to caps lock when you setup NVDA). Eloquence is available for NVDA if you like that synthesizer. See: https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/wiki/ExtraVoices for more information on the various voices.
To get your Braille Edge 40 setup with NVDA, you need the USB drivers from HIMS, and then to go into NVDA's Braille preferences to tell it to use the device. See the User Guide for a bit more info (and links to the HIMS drivers): https://www.nvaccess.org/files/nvda/documentation/userGuide.html?#toc110
