NVDA say: edit read-only when nagivate line by line in Word


Dan Miner
 

I have gotten that behavior in a couple of ways. When reading temporary files from say an email (using Open from a context menu) or when there is an embedded view from another application (Excel is always a candidate for this problem with protected cells). So, perhaps your friend can note the specific source and way he or she is accessing the document?

These two messages may solve the problem.

I turned off all the settings I thought might cause this behavior but when I open up an editable document, I still hear document editable. You may need to use the speech dictionary to stop this behavior.

Hi all
Some of my friend told me that their NVDA read: edit read-only each time they press up / down arrows to navigate line by line in Microsoft Office Word, but I didn't see this in my NVDA so don't know why, and how to make NVDA not read this. If you know how to config NVDA to ignore that message, please show me.
Any help would be appreciated.
Cuong
