Re: A couple of small annoyances.

Hi Max,

Since everyone else has had plenty to say on the pronunciation issue, I'll tackle the opening files in Word part.

Firstly, I would say, please don't assume that something is a small thing that we may not think is worth fixing - much more likely, either no-one noticed, or as I sometimes do - someone noticed it, but wasn't in a position to record it at the time, and then forgot.  I started writing this issue and reply up yesterday and then got caught up with something else, and just remembered it now.

So, I have now written up an issue on GitHub:

Feel free to subscribe to that issue, or to add anything I forgot.

I recognize that these are small things that the developers may not think
are important enough to fix.  Here goes anyway.  When I am opening a file
in word I press control O and then tab twice.  Nvda says recently opened
files.  You haven't opened any files recently.  This was not unexpected the
first time I opened a file after installing nvda.  However, I use word
every day and the message continues.  At first it was a laugh, then a smile
and now it's I wish it wouldn't do that.  Another thing is the
pronunciation   of s o u r c e.  In the united states source rhymes with
horse not with farce as nvda pronounces it.  I have tried to fix it in the
dictionary but when I replace the h in horse with an s it goes back to the
rhyme with farce.   Well, I guess that's just the way it is.
