Hi List,

I have recently been using Access 2016 with NVDA and I have had problems.

In table view NVDA cannot read any of the field names when moving from column to column. Also when creating a query, NVDA is unable to report the sort row A for ascending or D for descending, cannot report the criterior row; so unable to create a query without sighted help.

I note that there has not been any work done on NVDA with Access since version 2003 and would like to ask whether or not any update is being considered.

Is there any keystroke in NVDA which would show these missing field names?
