Hi,
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.

Confirmed. To summarize:

  • 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.
