Thanks for your instruction. I know this, but my friend said she can
edit her file normaly. Just feel a little annoy while NVDA read this
each time she navigate. I'll call her to understand the problem
Appreciated your help, and replies from other member.

most of the time this happens with Word, it is because the
document has been emailed to the NVDA user. Regardless of whether
the NVDA user has opened it directly from the email or has saved
it to their computer first and then opened it, Word will open it
in protected mode, which is read-only and therefore it can't be
edited and many of the ribbon options, like chnaging font or
changing the view to draft view will not work.
To prevent that happening, press ALT+f to open the file menu,
press the down arrow key three times to get to the Info menu,
press Tab to enter that menu and then press the down arrow to get
to the Protected View menu. Press Tab again and you'll be on the
Enable Editing option and, if you press enter, that document will
become unprotected and the NVDA user should no longer hear the
warning that the document is protected and can't be edited. It
will remain unprotected even after you close the document or shut
down the computer. The same works with Excel files :)
I hope that helps.
