Re: Word 2016 crashes often

Well I assume this is going to be a very big file.
Can you save the converted file from word before it crashes as another name?
It would be interesting to see what the file length is.
I have to say even in old versions of Word I used to get hangs and ended up cutting up large files into two.

Its really hard to say more about it, unless we know more. is it every book, even short ones. Does the conversion maybe corrupt the word doc at some point resulting in the crash?

I very seldom have good experiences with big pdfs as they normally forget to tag the reading order changes at some point making whole sections into gibberish.
I just wondered why you converted it? Is it possible to read it in its native pdf?

Subject: [nvda] Word 2016 crashes often

I'm observing, when I convert a book from PDF to word and navigate it using NVDA, the word document crashes after 30-40 minutes approx. This doesn't happen if I'm working on document which hasn't been converted from some other format, say when I'm writing a report in word itself

Why is this happening, is this because of NVDA or ms word itself?
Is this because of the heavily formatted PDFs that I convert to word and word is not able to handle the formatting?
