Hello Christo

Although I am not a member of the braille committee, here is my cent's worth on the matter of diacritics.

Initially I thought that we, as Afrikaans readers, were lucky to have continued with the old diacritic symbols. I still don't mind using them, but I echo your sentiments, let's keep it simple, or rather universal. Use the diacritic symbols as designed by the UEBC committee.

Hello all

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)
Version: next-14124,08a2b888

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.

Kind regards

Let's clarify!

1 - The command to read the status bar is:
Desktop layout - NVDA+End
Laptop layout - NVDA+Shift+End

2 - The End key is the one found on the six-pad between the letters
and numeric keyboard, normally above the arrow keys.

Running latest NVDA and Win 10. In the NVDA documentation it says
that NVDA key and the end key reads the status bar. Does not do it for me.
What am I doing wrong?
