Hi list


I have been wondering whether it would be possible for the NVDA developers to assist me with the following.


When working in EXCEL NVDA tells me when I pressed CTRL+B, CTRL+I or CTRL+U. Would it be possible to have NVDA sy “bold, italics or underline”.


At our college we often work with students who are real novices on computer and it is important for them to know that they used the correct keystrokes.


Something else that poses a slight problem in EXCEL, is that NVDA doesn’t always read the cell address when you navigate with the arrows or ENTER. When there is text in the cell, NVDA usually reads the text and announces the cell address, but when it is blank, dead silence greets me.


Please help us.
