Re: NVDA and office 2016



It also depends on which build of Office 365 you’ve got, because sometimes that makes a difference (fixes are in Outlook, for instance).

Hi Quentin,


Now if we could persuade NVDA to stop crashing every time you change Outlook folders, Office would be usable again.


I know Freedom Sci had to hack around this problem with MS, something to do with UIA calls.


All the best

Hi Mary,


Office 2016 is in many ways similar to Office 2013.  NVDA works very well with both, and in a couple of cases, Microsoft have fixed bugs in 2016 so there are some things that work better.  I wrote the official NV Access training material for Microsoft Word and Excel using Office 2016.  The material itself works for Office 2010 to 2016 (I found in more cases I was noting a difference in the behaviour of Office 2010 compared to the other two, rather than a new difference in Office 2016).


If you are interested, our material is available from:


Kind regards

Hi all,
I was just looking on Jean‘s website, Accessibility, and there was a tutorial there for using Microsoft Word with NVDA. It mentioned office 2013. I have a friend who uses a different screen reader, and he also uses 2013. Is 2016 accessible? I hope so, because that seems to be the currently available version.
