JAWS has a feature called Text Analyzer which reports things it
thinks may be errors. I don't know how many spaces it reports
beyond one space between words but it does report spaces that it
thinks are likely to be too many.

I would prefer NVDA or any screen
reader say something like “Three Spaces” if they are present
on a line.
All the best
It could also be argued that sighted
users don't see anything for whitespace (either spaces,
tabs, newlines, etc) (ok Word with non-printable characters
displayed is an exception).
To the OP, In any case, if you can
think of a good workaround and use case, then feel free to
create an issue. As Gene noted, you don't generally want
spaces between words read out when just reading regular
text, and depending on how you navigate, they ARE reported
now. Whether that fits what you need, will depend on....
what you need, and what you are doing.

Also, if I move by character with the
left and right arrows and there are spaces on a line, I
hear space as I move and if there are words and spaces,
I hear the words spelled as I move and space spoken
between words. When I up and down arrow among lines
with spaces and nothing else, I hear blank. All this
makes sense. You don't want to hear space spoken when
you are reading lines. You do want to hear space spoken
when you are moving by character through a line.

It sounds to me as though you
aren't reporting when it says space and blank with
enough detail. If I have a blank line in Notepad, I
hear blank. When I put spaces on the line and nothing
else, it still says blank. But if I want to check to
see if there are any spaces on the line and I issue
the say current line command twice quickly, the number
of spaces are spoken on the line and blank isn't.
That makes sense since if it announced space when it
saw spaces in a line when not spelling the line, you
would hear space announced during ordinary reading
between every word.

Hmm, I am just wondering to my understand, blank is
nothing, but if there is spaces, and it says blank,
I may be confused.

What is the context and would
you rather it read?
When there is a empty line, nvda will report
But, if the line contain only spaces, say " "
nvda will say "space blank."
I wanna understand why nvda still regard it as
blank when there are spaces?
