Re: Using tracking changes in Word and NVDA
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Hello again Quinten,
It seems that the hot key for turning on/off tracking changes in Word is not control-shift-R but rather control-shift-e. I had to get sighted help to find this out. It looks like I am going to have to get significant sighted help to complete this project as NVDA is not always reliable about reading whether or not things have been deleted or changed.

Thank you for answering my question. The information you provided should be enough to get me started. If I end up using this feature more often than just for this assignment, ,I will definitely consider purchasing the training module you linked to below.

Press control+shift+r to turn track changes on or off. While on, any change you make to the document is recorded and can be approved or rejected later.
With NVDA in browse mode (NVDA+spacebar) you can jump between tracked changes as annotations (a or shift+a). You can then use the context menu to accept or reject individual changes.
For more detail on using track changes, You might be interested in the Microsoft Word with NVDA training module, which has several topics with step by step instructions on turning the feature on and off, navigating between changes and accepting and rejecting changes: https://www.nvaccess.org/product/microsoft-word-training-for-nvda-ebook/
