I think the problem caused by Office 2016. My friend use Microsoft
Office 2016. I created a portable NVDA from my current NVDA, and
shared to her, but the problem still occur after installing that
one. Right now I don't have any computer with office 2016 install,
and try to make sure this is an issue so if any of you using the
latest NVDA with office 2016, please share expirience. If this is an
issue, I'm going to create a tiket on github.

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.
