hitting NVDA and B to have everything read for me. It reads all,

Word to be turned on so that the cells in a line may be shown? How
can I turn on that option, so that the review does not follow the

In Microsoft Word, is the window maximized? I don't know if
it matters but Word used to have a status line. I don't know
what newer versions do. As far as hearing such information read
using screen review, are you familiar with the option in NVDA to
not have the review follow the cursor? You could turn on this
option, then move to the bottom of the screen with review
commands and find the place where you want to hear the
information on the bottom line, If you leave the review cursor
there, it will read the number any time you use numpad 5 for
read current character. You can move around the document with
the application cursor and never disturb the review position.
Also, the command shift numpad 9 moves the review position to
the end of the bottom line on screen. This saves you the
trouble of moving to it initially.

Subject: [nvda] Cell reporting in the Document
Hi to all,
It would be extremely great to have column numbers reported in a
processor when one does the left/right arrowing in a line.
Let me explain myself in some more detail.
Let's open a Word document, and type NVDA.
With the feature from the message subject, and with the left/right
arrowing, it would be possible for one to find out that the letter
placed at the forth column.
NVDA may be programmed to pronounce it as:
A: Column 4.
V: Column 2.
D: Column 3.
N: Column 1.
Spaces are not supposed to be eliminated.
It would be also great for those working with written forms.
It is possible for me to handle it in Jarte and Ted Notepad.
After I've written something, and positioned my left and/or right
on a letter and/or a space, I switch NVDA to the screen review
the NVDA modifier key, and then arrow down to the very bottom, so
can hear the column number spoken. I cannot find it in Word 2007.
That's why I say that the very feature would be great when added
Document formatting menu.
Many of us would automatically stop counting and re-counting
lines while arranging our written forms in the best way possible.
