Re: Microsoft Word table navigation broken in NVDA 21.1


Kelly, Kathleen
 

Hi, I have read with some interest these issues with Office 365. I spoke with a couple of folks at Microsoft today and they indicated that Microsoft was aware of the issues with NVDA. In my case the error manifests itself as a graphics error -- Word or Outlook stalls, blocks of text disappear, text corrupts to truncated lines, moves around page, mini pages in the margins, ribbon fragments into partial icons, and then the document collapses to a blank page. What do you recommend? Thanks, Kate

Hello,
This bug is fixed in NVDA 2021.3. In the meantime, you can go to NVDA
advanced options and disable the use of Microsoft UI Automation for
Microsoft Word until we get to NVDA 2021.3.
