NVDA not reading lines in a multiple column document

Pranav Lal

Hi all,

I had to work with a word document that was split into multiple columns. I
am not talking about tables here but newspaper columns.

NVDA went silent for some lines. Jaws worked just fine which is how I know
that the document had multiple columns.

This was on my work computer running windows 10 1809 and Microsoft word 365.

I have tested on my home machine that has windows 10 Version 21H1 (OS Build
19043.1052) running word 365
MicrosoftR Word for Microsoft 365 MSO (16.0.14204.20000) 64-bit

The text is being read but the columns are not being detected.

Is anyone able to duplicate this? I am using NVDA version 2020.4.
