I would even suggest, instead of “carriage return”, why not simply “enter”?

I’m talking about using right arrow. Carriage return just sounds really wordy and I’m not sure new users would know what it means. No, I guess Blank wouldn’t be best, but new line would be great.
What are you describing? If I down arrow through a document in any application, a blank line is announced as blank. If I move character by character, a carriage return is announced as carriage return. I suppose this could be shortened to return but I don't have any feelings about that one way or another. But there should certainly be a distinction of this type when moving by character. Saying blank is inaccurate when moving by character but it isn't blank. It’s a formatting character.
Are you saying that in the Windows e-mail app, when moving by down arrowing blank lines aren't indicated with the word blank?

Subject: [nvda] Carriage return
Hi all. Coming from Linux and Mac, I was a little surprised to find that, at least in the Windows 10 mail app, NVDA shows a new line as carriage return. Is this necessary now? Shouldn’t this be changed to something more understandable, like new line, or even blank?
