Re: reading status bar
Hi Christotoggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I always run the latest snapshots of NVDA, so am on the most current one. I'm not able to reproduce your described issue with the status line. It works correctly in MS Word, Outlook and Thunderbird. Where the status line still is a problem, and actually has been since I moved to Windows 10, is the status line hotkey simply reporting, "No status line found," in File Manager. Yes, I know there are ways with review cursor to find the info on the status bar, but I believe it's a reasonable expectation to have this working correctly in File Manager. Windows 10 has been around long enough now, and this does actually work fine with commercial screen readers.
BTW, as for Office I'm using 365.

Subject: Re: [nvda] reading status bar
I can confirm that I, too, can no longer get NVDA to read the status line in both MS Word 2013 and the latest updated versions of Thunderbird. I am using the following version of NVDA:
NonVisual Desktop Access (NVDA)
But the inability to read these status lines started some snapshots back already, can't remember exactly when.
In Thunderbird when I give the command to read the status line, NVDA just says: "blank". In MS Word it says: "Navigation". I have tried this in both Object Review mode and Screen Review mode with exactly the same results. In both cases the screen is maximised.
