Thank you very much for the reply. I will get those extra details and add them to the issue comments. Much appreciated.

Hi Luke,

I just replied to the issue - basically I asked what version of Outlook 365 are you using?  Which synthesizer are you using?  Does it happen when moving by word (without selecting) or (while I think of it) - does it happen if you press the right arrow to move by character?

And finally, could you please get a copy of your NVDA log - I put the instructions in my comment, but you can also email them to me at info@... if you prefer as well.

Kind regards

Just giving this a bump because it’s been several days and I still haven’t heard anything from this group nor the GitHub community. Has anybody tried re-creating my issue, and, if so, were you able to? Thanks again.

Hi folks,


I created an issue for this several days ago on GitHub but haven’t heard back yet so thought I’d run it by the group in the meantime. When I’m composing a new email in Outlook 365, I get strange behavior when selecting text by word. What I mean is, if I hold down shift and control and then use the left and right cursor keys to select text by words, only every other highlighted word is spoken aloud. For example, if I was selecting the words in the following sentence, from left to right, “I hope everyone is well,” I would hear the following with each press of the right arrow key: I, silence, everyone, silence, well.

NVDA 220.3 on Win10 Home. I hope this makes sense.
