Thanks for the tip re the asterisk in Notepad files. I’d noticed it but didn’t know what it meant.

Just chiming in to give the visual perspective:
In Notepad, when pressing control+s:
- If the document has not been saved before, the "Save as" dialog appears and NVDA reports that.
- If the document has been saved previously, Notepad saves it, and NVDA does not say anything (unless you have speak command keys on, in which case NVDA reports "control+s"). Notepad does put an asterisk at the start of the filename in the title bar when a document has been edited. This disappears when the document is saved. NVDA does read this asterisk when reading the title bar.
In Word 365, when pressing control+s:
- If the document has not been saved before, a "Save this file" window appears and NVDA reports that.
- If the document has been saved previously and "AutoSave" is enabled, nothing happens and NVDA does not report anything (again unless speak command keys is on to report "control+s"). With AutoSave on, the document is saved every time any key is pressed so control+s is not needed.
- If the document has been saved previously and "AutoSave" is not enabled, the visual response is again subtle. When you open a document, or save it, the title bar notes "Filename - Saved". Once you change it, the "Saved" disappears. This gets reinstated when you save it. There is currently a known issue, I believe with the way Office is exposing the title bar. See: https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/10150
Similar to announcing cut, copied or pasted, reporting when a document is saved is not something we would be inclined to add to NVDA UNLESS we could be sure a document had been saved. I can see the usefulness of the functionality for some users (it reminds me of how when teaching email, people often want confirmation that the email has been sent, but many email clients don't give that). For this reason, I would recommend it might be useful functionality for an add-on. Possibly Damien Garwood, developer of the ClipSpeak add-on, might be interested in adding it.
