The column number can be included in the word status bar.
1. After opening Word press F6 to switch to the status bar
pane. If you have other panes open you may have to press F6 more
2. Press the Applications key or Shift+F10 to open the context
menu for the status bar.
3. In this menu there are a number of items which can be shown
or hidden by pressing enter on them.
4. Press escape once you have added and removed the status bar
items you like and then Shift+F6 to get back to the open
While this will tell you the column number I have not found a
way to get NVDA to report the horizontal position of the cursor
in inches. To me this is even more important than the column
number because if a line is centered its first character will
still be called column 1 though it does not line up with column
1 of left aligned paragraphs or even with other centered
paragraphs. Is there a way to get the horizontal position
information in Word documents from NVDA?
Thanks, and hope my answer is helpful.
