Just tested with the beta, and it's a bit faster, but not as
responsive as I'm accustomed to from most other apps. The only
other app that lags like this is Thunderbird, though admittedly
that lag is worse than word's. It's probably partly that I'm
tabbing manually through the ribbon instead of using keyboard
shortcuts. I've forgotten how to do most of the things I'll want
to do with shortcuts but I can google those.

Sorry, it's been a while and I thought NVAccess only displayed
stable releases... My bad.

Google is your friend.
So where can I get a beta copy to test this out?

Tried it, and
the response when tabbing around is still

for the first time in several years. I noticed
that navigating around the document and the

like. I don't know what's causing this, or whether
it's a Word thing or an NVDA thing, so I thought
I'd ask here.
