reporting word number automatically.

I am using latest nvda and microsoft word 2016. Is it possible to change settings so that nvda will announce word numbers automatically after each 5 or 10 words?

There isn't an NVDA setting for that.  Theoretically it could be possible with an add-on, but I can't think of one which does it.

There are a couple of things you can do to regularly check the word count, which is displayed in the status bar:
1) Press F6 to jump to the status bar.  There are a number of other values here, so next press the right arrow to move to word count.  Press SHIFT+F6 to move back to the document.  Next time you press F6, the focus will jump straight to word count.

2) Press NVDA+end (NVDA+shift+end if using laptop keyboard layout).  This reads the status bar.  As noted, there are a number of other pieces of information here.  While you can't reorder them, you can remove things you don't want.  Again, press F6 to move to the status bar then the applications key to open the context menu.  Press the down arrow to move through the list and spacebar to check and uncheck any items.  Note that the state of the checkbox isn't reported.  This is a known issue, but for now you'll just have to remember what is and isn't checked.  If you would like to comment on the issue, it is this one: https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/5996

Hello!


We have develloped an add-on to count words, but only to selected text...

https://www.tiflotecnia.net/wordCount.nvda-addon


Adapt it to announce automatically is, I think, possible, but only for one person and one app, wich already have a word count feature, don't seems reasonable...

Hi Farhan

 

Further to Quentin’s great suggestions, try the Word shortcut Control + Shift + G (for golf) to bring up the document statistics. Press escape when done to return to your place in the document.

 

Hope this is useful.

 

All the best.

 

Ben

And as a side note, ALT+R,W, suggested by Ms. Byrne, and CTRL+SHIFT+G, suggested by Mr. Moxey, both bring up the same Word Count dialog.

The difference is the first throws focus to the review ribbon, and activates the Word Count option, and once you exit the Word Count dialog the Review Ribbon is what's still active.  The second just invokes the Word Count dialog no matter what ribbon happens to be on display and doesn't change it.  When you close afer CTRL+SHIFT+G whatever ribbon had been active before hitting that command remains active.  Using either still leaves your insertion point in the document wherever it had been immediately prior to your having invoked the dialog.
