Hello again all,
Thank you for answering my question about reading selected files in WE. I’m disappointed that NVDA cannot do this, it seems like a pretty basic requirement of a screen reader. Hopefully this problem can be resolved soon, perhaps with the beta? Meanwhile, I will try the addon mentioned below.
I really appreciate the responsiveness of people on this list.

Re: [nvda] Reading names of selected files
Ther is a add-on, develloped by me, that allows the reading of status bar in Windows 10 File explorer...
You can get it at:
The option that I think Janet wants does not exist in NVDA, meaning that NVDA have no way to read the name of selected files...

Normally, as Gene noted, you should be able to use NVDA+end / NVDA+shift+end to read the status bar, however there is a bug preventing that from Working in File Explorer in Windows 10 - https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/6769
One thing you can do, is use NVDA's next and previous object commands (NVDA+numpad 4 / NVDA+shift+left arrow for previous, NVDA+numpad 6 / NVDA+shift+right arrow for next). That will move object navigation through the items in the list. One quirk is it won't announce "selected" for items which are selected, but will announce "not selected" for items which are not selected. (It's not so much a bug as, 99% of the time people are moving through the list one item at a time and don't want to hear every item as selected).
use tab and shift+tab to ensure you are in list view for selecting files.

nothing is difficult unless you make it appear so.
