When editing text, i find it really useful to use CTRL+DELETE to delete the word at the cursor location.
This is more intuitive than CTRL+BACKSPACE since NVDA announces the word following the cursor (and not the word before), .
When using CTRL+BACKSPACE i get vocal feedback that the word was deleted but unfortunately this feedback is missing when using CTRL+DELETE.
If possible to add the same vocal notification for CTRL+DELETE it will be great...

Download the nvda extension global plugin and have a look at how the author impliments this. Google nvda modules nvda.fr and make sure you translate the page.
Backspace erases the character at the left of the system caret and NVDA reports the erased character.
Delete erases the character at the right of the system caret and NVDA reports the character to the immediate right of the deleted character.
Ctrl+Backspace deletes the word at the left of the system caret and NVDA reports the erased word.
However, the bug is that when Ctrl+Delete is pressed, and it erases the word to the right of the system caret, NVDA remains silent. A user would ideally expect to hear the word present at the immediate right of the deleted word when Ctrl+Delete is pressed for consistency as well as functionality.
