Re: Spell Checking With NVDA

That is for an entire line.  If there is only one word on what NVDA considers a line, whether it is or not, you will only hear that one word spelled.  But that isn't the read current word command. 
 
I would suggest you consider learning the proper review commands, for read current word and read current character.  You should also learn the command in that cluster for read current line.  They are important not only because you may need them for there usual purpose, but they are essential to know if you want to select text you can't select with the application cursor.  If you are in a dialog, for example, and you want to send someone the text that describes an error to someone doing technical support.

I have always just used NVDA + the up arrow twice to spell out a word.
I use NVDA + up arrow to re-read a line ... if I hit up twice it
spells out the sentence for me. The only difference between that and
using numpad 5 is that it doesn't do it phonetically.
