Re: Say next and previous sentence not working in Word

Now Sentence nav needs improvements. It works properly with older
version of nvda v19.2, but not with latest one. It misses many words
from the beginning of the sentences while reading Unicode based
languages like Gujarati and Hindi. It Also makes too much gaps between
sentences while reading long literature.

Ben,



In fact, I am running Office 2016 so you have your answer!





All the best,

Hi Cearbhall



I forgot to mention that I am running Office 365, rather than 2016. I don't
think this will make a difference, but it would be interesting to hear from
someone running 2016 to clarify if navigating by sentence is working for
them using Alt + up or Down arrow.



Cheers

Ben,



Thanks for taking the trouble to reply.



I have downloaded the add-on today called "SentenceNav" and another called
"TextNav". These do the job. So, in response to your suggestion, I
restarted
NVDA with add-ons disabled. This eliminated the functions provided by those
two apps. I could now try out your suggestio. In Outlook, I found that you
were right. When I switched to the active cursor with NVDA + space, the
sentence commands did work. However, they failed to work in NS, Word. Any
ideas?



I restarted the two add-ons and now I have the sentence reading controls in
both Word and Outlook!



I would like to hear from the developers why this strange behaviour is
happening.



All the best,



Cearbhall

Hi Cearbhall



The next and previous sentence commands should be working as normal in
Word.
However, note that they will not work if you are using Browse mode in a
Word
document to navigate by headings etc. Ensure you are in Focus mode by using
the toggle command, NVDA + Space, and give them another try.



I hope this is helpful.



All the best.



Ben

Hi, all,

I am using Windows 10, NVDA 2020.3 and Word 2016.



When I try to read the next or previous sentence in a Word document, using
alt + down-Arrow, or alt + up-arrow, I get no response. Indeed when I turn
on keyboard help, these key combinations get no echo. It appears that this
function has been removed from NVDA! I opened the NVDA User Guide and it
still says that alt-Down-arrow is to be used to say next sentence and
alt-up-arrow for previous sentence.



Can anyone explain what is happening? Is the user guide out of step?



All the best,



Cearbhall
