How do I enable experimental UIA support?

First, I admit that my computer is most definitely not the
fastest machine around. In my case, there is definite
sluggishness when using NVDA with Microsoft Word 365. This is
not only true with startup, which isn't all that bad, but it
particularly manifests itself when moving the cursor to edit or
review text. In my case, there is a noticeable delay which has
pretty much caused me to avoid using NVDA with Word on this
machine until version 2018.4 introduced experimental UIA
support. Minimizing the window and putting Word into draft mode
helps to speed things up somewhat. Enabling the experimental UIA
support has made quite a difference for me with 2018.4 and I can
now use Word with a reasonable response time when navigating
text with arrow keys. Someone on another list also reported the
same issue. I pretty much did much of my word processing with
LibreOffice for certain tasks, which behaves normally. On faster
machines which I use at work, however, navigating in Word is
responsive and navigation behaves as expected.

Thank you for your reply to my query. I am surprised
you're having issues with sluggishness with Word 2016 (other
than startup being slow). I would try uninstalling and
reinstalling before jumping ship, particularly since Word really
is the de facto standard.
I don't think you're going to find any other major
word processor that's any less cluttered. It's a consequence of
feature bloat, plain and simple.
Word is, by far, the best supported word processor
when it comes to screen readers.
