Re: Unable to read the edit field labels for the file properties in Microsoft Excel and Microsoft Word

Hi everyone,

Just catching up on this as I've been away for a few days.  I too can replicate the issue.  In the interim, I have two possible workarounds:

- When on one of the edit fields, press NVDA+numpad 8 (Desktop keyboard layout) or NVDA+shift+up arrow (Laptop keyboard layout) to move the review cursor to the containing object.  That reads the label and you can then type into the field as normal.  Unless you've set the review cursor to not follow focus, you can press the same keystroke when you tab to the next field.

- When tabbing through that info page, before the edit fields there is a "properties" grouping.  Press ENTER on that, and then ENTER on the first (only) option which is "Advanced properties".  That opens a traditional dialog box with more fields and options, and the labels read correctly on that dialog.

Regards

Quentin.

Dear Cearbhall

Thank you for your message and for your help.

You can use the fields to specify the values of many of the file properties.
These file properties are available from the Windows File Explorer
properties dialog box (on the "Details" tab). Some people use them to help
organize and find files, and they can be useful when you want to find the
correct person to contact about fixing a problem in a file.

Thank you

David
