Re: Problems with NVDA and Formulars in MS word

That is indeed odd, as all your messages come in in English for me.
Christina's messages however read in another language using Gmail's
web interface. When Brian quotes them, they come through in English.
This has happened occasionally on this list, and only this list.

it's in English for me, and NVDA reads it in English just fine. I'm trying
to think what the issue you are hitting could be - I would have assumed
even if you had somehow set Outlook to use another language, it still
wouldn't automatically translate messages, just the interface (much like if
you set NVDA's interface language to another language, it only changes how
NVDA's menus are presented and NVDA messages and words are spoken - not for
instance the text of an email.

I thought we had an issue for this, but I can't find it just now. These
content controls on the developer ribbon have always been problematic in
one way or another (and if not in entering them, then in filling in the
forms they create).

So the other part of this is - what are you trying to make? Word is
likely not the best solution for creating something like a form you want
people to fill in like this. Something like Google forms are popular for
online survey type forms. For something you want people to be able to
either fill out on the PC, or print out, use a regular, ordinary table:

- Have two columns where the cell in the left column is the label
"address", etc), and the right column is where you type your response

- For longer responses, have a full table-width cell with the label
("Please explain why you want to go to Mars?") and a full table-width
below that to enter the response.

A table like this can be printed and filled in by pen, or you can tab
through the table and fill in details as appropriate, and it will work
just about everyone.
