Re: nvda not announcing command description


Open the objject Presentation dialog, control NVDA key o.  the setting is in that dialog and is controled by a check box.
If you open the dialog in this way, you are on tooltips without moving.  It’s the first field in the dialog.  If you let all information read, you will hear the field announced.
It may be inconvenient to use NVDA key control o.  You can open the NVDA menu, down arrow to preferences, press enter, down arrow to object presentation and tab.  You are moving through the same part of the dialog and the first time you tabb you will be on tool tips. 
You may want to see how things change if you turn tooltips on, but doing so will change nothing as far as how ribbons are read, nor the information messages you hear as you move about what various controls do.

For that action you need to turn on tool tips in setting, object presentation. Then it will speak help for those items.
