When reading content in Microsoft Word, NVDA only announces the existence of spelling errors. It should also announce the existence of grammar errors.

Ug. I'll reverse the duplicate.

I think grammar errors should be controlled by a separate Document formatting setting, as one might not want to have these reported, especially as computerised ideas of natural language grammar are subjective at best.

This has been reverted, as it caused intermittent (but frequent) crashes in Word (#5954). These crashes seem to be deep in Word itself - our code isn't anywhere to be seen - but obviously querying for gramma errors causes instability somehow.

@leonardder, @michaelDCurran is this something which could now be tried again? The code for MS Word underwent some changes recently and at least for UIA it would be worthy to try it at least.
