Re: Office 365 with NVDA

For me, the additional Onedrive space is very attractive as my wife and I use it to access files on our respective devices.

I may be wrong about this but you may not always receive accessibility fixes with the 2016 release. As an example, in Outlook are you able to edit an existing email signature using a screen reader?

Just curious as to what advantages Office has beyond the 2016 release for those of us using NVDA and who mainly use Word, Outlook, and occasionally Excel.  I realize 365 includes 1tb Onedrive space, which I didn't use when I subscribed to 365.

That’s fine.

If some new features come along that I feel I must have, I’ll upgrade.

For  all the things I do, I do not need  the latest and the greatest.

You are correct but what you won't receive are new features, which are not usually added to perpetual licenses of Office such as Office 2016.

2016 is not dead,  it is still alive in the software world.

Yes, you wont get 2019 or 365 automatically, you will stay with 2016. With a 365 subscription you always get the newest release of Office.

Hi,

 

I have Office 2016,  it gets updates at no extra cost.

Am I missing something?

Thanks,

Monte

Dear Denis

 

The main advantage of Microsoft 365 is that Office stays up-to-date at no extra cost.

 

Kind regards

What are the advantages and disadvantages  of Office 365 with NVDA?  Will it find my account in office 2016?
