MS Outlook 2007: unable to use spell checker #2070

When editing an email in Outlook 2007 and attempting to spell-check, the spell check dialogue comes up if there are errors, but I have no access to the word flagged. I hear grammatical error for every misspelled word. I can tab to the suggestions box and down-arrow through the list normally, but in no case can I see the original word, or the sentence/line the word is found in. Other controls work, but I am left having to guess what word is being flagged based on the suggestions list.

I see this has been classified as minor, fine but it is one of the lacks that keeps me from moving to NVDA full time. For business/professional emails, I need the capability to spell-check, in addition to other proofing I already do manually.

Coming back to this ticket...
I'm using Office 2010 and spell checker works as expected. Try using NVDA 2014.1 and see if it fixes this problem. Thanks.
