nvda doesn't announce what i'm selecting in a multi line edit field.
for example in a reply edit field, it announces what i'm selecting if i select a word or some words in the first line of the message body by pressing ctrl+shift+ right arrow.
and it also works fine if i select the whole line by pressing shift+end.
but the problem occurs when i start selection from the second line.
it doesn't announce what i'm selecting whether i select a word by word or the whole line.

Most likely caused by 36c938c (fix for #1566). We'll probably have to revert this and thus cause #1566 again.
Milestone changed from None to 2011.2

Nope, not caused by that. Has existed most likely since 2a3e558.
I'm very tempted to take that code out (the code that does that expand to word, expand to textEdit, is it before the start) if so expand to textEdit and collapse. It was added to fix some weird issue when at the end of some edit fields... but I can't reproduce that problem, and all that code has changed majorly since. It also speeds things up some what if its taken out.
Note that its also currently sometimes causing other content outside the edit field to be read when moving by line in some textAreas.

I had this problem today when updating some tickets. Yes, also the reading bits outside the edit area also happened as well. Bit flakey. Maybe you should remove the code and give it some extended testing .

Fixed in c94b81d. However, there is a possibility this could bring back another bug (not ticketed it seems) to do with the caret when at the end of an edit field it seems as though its before the start. 2a3e558
State: closed
