Re: Formatting issues in Word, add-on?

Can cause significant lag, though.

Also, Janet, I don't know what version of Word you've got, but I
strongly suggest turning live preview off if available.

Have you tried reading a document or the part you are working on with
the setting on that says something like report formatting changes after
the cursor?  I haven't played with different ways of getting attribute
information to any extent but you may find that a good method to see
changes as they occur in a document.

the setting is a checkbox at the end of the document formatting dialog.
The fastest way to get to it is to open document formenting, then shift
tab a number of times to it.

When you have finished working with it, you can turn it off with one
command, the use saved configuration command, NVDA key control r.

Hi Jackie,

Yes, I have used that command but with the formatting not being toggled on
and off correctly I'm not sure whether or not to trust that command's
accuracy. Brian has given me some e great suggestions.

Have you used NVDA + f to look at your font? It'll say those attributes.

Hello all,



Is there an addon for Word that works with the latest NVDA and Windows
Ten?



My job requires me to use a Word template in an old version of Word,
I'm pretty sure it's 1997-2003. This template is on a transcription
platform. I write within the template and submit it through the
platform. When I toggle between Ctrl-U or Ctrl-I for underlining or
italics, NVDA often reports incorrect status. It usually says that
they are on each time. This has caused the formatting of documents I
submit to be incorrect and I'm not sure whether I can trust the report
formatting command NVDA-F. Is there an addon that would work reliably
to prevent this problem?



Thank you,



Janet
