Re: NVDA not reading Spell Checker fields
Are you using object navigation or flat review? I think it's called screen review in newer versions of NVDA. Use object navigation. Move using numpad insert 4 to go baqck and nunmpad insert 6 to go forward.
there are times when object navigation sees things that screen review won't. This appears likely to be one such time.

The keystroke NVDA+b is the only tool that gives me the erroneous field.
It starts at the top of the dialog and, when it comes to “Not found in dictionary” if repeats this twice followed by “alt plus” and then repeats “not found in dictionary” once more followed by the erroneous text and then continues on to read to the bottom of the dialog.
This is the only time when the erroneous word is spoken. It is not available when I use the numpad to review the text even though NVDA+b has spoken it. Yet, the offered correction is available in all modes of review.
All the best,

Use the review cursor to read the previous text to get the misspelled word, and you can also read forward further down the pane to get the dictionary meaning of replacement words.
To read the context of the spelling error, the best option is to press escape to go back to the document, read the line / sentence / etc, and press F7 to go back to spell check again (or F6 to move back to the pane).
Here's the section of the User Guide on the review cursor: http://www.nvaccess.org/files/nvda/documentation/userGuide.html?#ReviewingText
I'm almost finished writing the Word for NVDA course and included a topic on several methods for using the spell check, including activities. The Word course isn't available yet although the basic training for NVDA course is which covers the review cursor etc - see: http://www.nvaccess.org/shop/
