I don't know if there is any such adjust ment for
the status line. I doubt it but we'll see what others say.
As far as the NVDA setting is concerned, open the
nvda menu and open preferences. Find and press enter on review
cursor. You are now in a dialog. Uncheck the item you are on with
the space bar. Tab to and uncheck the next one as well. The items are

NVDA Key r. You should hear configuration applied. The
configuration NVDA uses when it runs is now being used again. That
will save you the trouble of changing the settings manually.

The window is maximized. In the status line, I'm not able to hear the cell
reporting. It reports the page number and the number of words. It also reports
the current language. I've also tried by hitting NVDA and B to have everything
read for me. It reads all, including what the status line presents. Is there an
option in Word to be turned on so that the cells in a line may be shown? How can

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

Hi to all,
It would be extremely great to have
column numbers reported in a text
processor when one does the left/right
arrowing in a line.

After I've written something, and positioned my left

on a letter and/or a space, I switch NVDA to the
screen review mode, hit
the NVDA modifier key, and then arrow down to the
very bottom, so that I
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 to the
Document formatting menu.
Many of us would
automatically stop counting and re-counting columns in
arranging our written forms in the best way
