Hi. I rarely use the spell check function in word but rather
have the option turned on to identify misspellings as I type.
Wtih nvda, if I type a word which is not in the dictionary, I hear
a sound from nvda.
If I am not sure how to spell the word in question, I can press
the application key to get a list of suggestions.
It is also entierly possible to use the actual spell checker in
word with nvda if you prefer that method.
I am using office 365 but unless you are on a really old version
of word, this shouldn't matter much as this functionality hasn't
changed in a long time.
If you really want to learn a lot about nvda, the training
materials available for purchase from the nvda online store are
well worth the money.
Happy to elaborate on any of this privately.

As well as Brian's suggestion re recycled Office
licenses, for word processing, Jarte is a popular free
option (there is a paid version with more features for
Open Office and Libre Office are free, open source Office
Suites. I think from memory NVDA works better with Libre
Office, although not as well as Microsoft Office.
And finally beginner to advanced training materials for
NVDA can be found in the NV Access shop. I'd recommend
starting with the "Basic Training for NVDA", which you can
get in various formats either on its own, or in the "NVDA
Productivity Bundle" which includes training material for
Microsoft Office programs (worthwhile if you do get
Microsoft Office rather than one of the other options) as
well as telephone support: https://www.nvaccess.org/shop/

I'm finally taking some steps to become a
more in-depth screen reader user, and I have NVDA
installed and ready on my laptop.
I'm trying to get back into writing because
it is something I've always enjoyed. I can't afford
Microsoft Office. Which free, and even open source apps
are the most accessible for this purpose?
Also, where can I find beginner to advanced
training materials to learn NVDA in-depth?
Thank you for your help!
