Re: Using tracking changes in Word and NVDA

I'm so sorry, yes of course it is control+shift+e. I'm not sure what I was thinking when I wrote the first reply!
Track changes only monitors changes made while the feature is active. If track changes was on when a change was made, NVDA will read it as you navigate. If there are changes not being reported, it is likely that track changes was not enabled when that change was made
So, if I have a document with "Hello Fred" in it, if I turn on track changes, delete "Hello" and type "Goodbye". As I read that line, NVDA will read "Deleted Hello, Inserted Goodbye, Not inserted Fred".
If I turn off track changes, then delete Fred and type Jane, NVDA will read: "Deleted Hello, Inserted Goodbye, Not inserted Jane".
Also if you "accept" or "reject" any changes, the text will either be changed or reverted, and either way will no longer appear as a change.
If you can give me an example where you have Track changes on, Word is recording the change and NVDA is not reporting it, I'd be interested to investigate.
