I don’t use any echo.  I can’t stand listening to it, so the less it speaks, the better I like it, and that goes for any screenreader and any speech.  I just want it to talk when I want to know something.  Pam.

Why typing in Word specifically?  I'm typing this e-mail and that's just as much writing as if I were writing in Word.  I use key echo when writing because it informs me of errors that I can correct as they are made.  This isn't necessary, I check messages before I send them but I want to know if I make an error when I make it and correct it then.  Using letter echo doesn't always tell me when an error is made for one reason or another but it helps.

If someone uses a synthesizer that is not responsive and the echo is too far behind the key press, using character echo becomes an impediment.  If I use Via Voice or Eloquence, the response is immediate.

I use no echo except in discord, I use word echo in that profile, only
because I've been having some odd ish issues in terms of words not typing
when I want them to be typed.

Hi,
Thanks for all of your feedback.
I just wanted to know because I like to write and I've used word echo and no echo. I was just curious what others did.
The reason I wasn't concerned about emails is because most emails aren't very long.

I use character echo! I like to hear every letter spoken as I type it! I am just lost if I only hear every word, for example! I fix my mistakes as I type! That is why I never use no echo! I would have a lot of little typoes to correct if I used no echo!

Hi.  I use "Speak typed characters" in all of my NVDA profiles for the same reasons already discussed in this thread.  I also have my symbol level set to "Most".

I use letter, but have in the past tried word echo, but my brain has a problem processing it that way.

Espeak is good on this, some of the higher quality voices are not very good at all though great for reading documents.

If I'm writing some kind of code the verbosity is always all, but this would be really annoying when writing documents, so some does for that, but I have occasionally migrated some characters from most to some or back, depending on the usage case.
Like all here say, if you are a mega accurate typist, no bother, but when your fingers have been on the planet for over 70 years, they do tend to not quite perform so well!
