Re: Text selection in Word 2016

There is an NVDA command to speak selected text.  It is NVDA shift up arrow.  I don't know what the update may have done.  Evidently yesterday, a very large update was released and I've seen two or three reports today from people with this or that problem after the update. 
 
See if that command helps you.  You wouldn't use it to hear every line as you select, but you can use it to hear the whole of what you have selected until you get a better solution.

Yes, that’s right, it is rather hindering now and not great for productivity.

Hi all, I really hope that someone on this list can help as I am really struggling with this rather  odd issue. I have a word document which I am reading from and I need to select some text to copy and paste elsewhere, however, when using Nvda, all of a sudden I am unable to hear the word or line I have just selected, NVDA completely cuts off. Please can someone help, this has only began to happen since taking the latest Windows update. --
