When i use buttons for moving cursor in the document on braille display in ms word, nvda is totaly freezing and i must restart nvda. For example when i want to edit some word, i must use arrows on keyboard, not buttons on braille display. Strange thing is, that in other programs like wordpad, notepad, etc, it is ok and i can use buttons on braille display. I have here eurobraille display and brltty.

I can not reproduce this bug with Word 2007 and a Freedom Scientific Pacmate display (native driver).
Some questions:
*What version of Word are you using?
*Does this happen with all documents?
*What language / text direction are you typing in?

Could you please provide a sample document and give specific steps to reproduce? i.e. open the document, arrow to line 3, press routing key 4...

Reporter says on dev list that the issue has been fixed. Although I could never reproduce it, it probably had something to do with braille having to get lines by moving the selection, possibly causing some infinite loop with the caret or something.
