Other information about your system:
Does the issue still occur after restarting your computer?
Have you tried any other versions of NVDA? If so, please report their behaviors.
Yes, as above.
If addons are disabled, is your problem still occuring?
Did you try to run the COM registry fixing tool in NVDA menu / tools?
No change. One user noted that at the same time as this started, CONTROL+X, CONTROL+C and CONTROL+V now report "Cut", "Copy" and "Paste" in Word. Note that this is WITHOUT any add-ons which otherwise provide that functionality and only seems to do this in Word. Note that this behaviour is the same whether the Use UIA in Word option (in NVDA's Advanced options) is enabled or not.
