Elements List not appearing or functioning with MS-Word 2010 #5886
When I have a document (attached) open in MS-Word 2010 and NVDA 2016.1 is running in browse mode I cannot make the Elements List appear or function. When I hit INSERT+F7 the announcement for the elements list is made, but the dialog itself does not appear. Since the document is full of hyperlinks, and if memory serves links should be the first element radio button, even if the dialog is not visible I should be able to tab into the tree view of the links, but hitting TAB simply jumps to the "Filter by" edit box. Using left/right arrow when the elements dialog opens does absolutely nothing.
Just as a note, I am not experiencing the same issue in MS-Excel 2010. When I hit INSERT+F7 the elements list immediately appears and I can interact with it.
The tree view gets focus for me, but contains nothing.
Technical: We're getting this exception:
It looks like
at it as quickly as you have)!

I was able to reproduce this with the attached document, I have found that there is one hyperlink in the document causing a problem. Interestingly it is just the left parenthesis character in the following text that is considered a hyperlink by word (tested with word 2013) :
If you try to edit the hyperlink properties, it seems as if it has no address or display text.
Looking at the docx source for the phone number line above has this:
<w:r> <w:t xml:space="preserve">Phone: </w:t> </w:r> <w:r><w:tab/></w:r> <w:r w:rsidRPr="00B22258"> <w:rPr> <w:vanish/> </w:rPr> <w:br/> </w:r> <w:hyperlink w:tgtFrame="_parent" w:history="1"> <w:r w:rsidRPr="00B22258"> <w:rPr> <w:rStyle w:val="Hyperlink"/> <w:vanish/> </w:rPr> <w:t>Get Directions</w:t> </w:r> </w:hyperlink> </w:p> <w:p w:rsidR="00B22258" w:rsidRDefault="00B22258" w:rsidP="00DD2EAF"> <w:r w:rsidRPr="00B22258"> <w:t>(914) 242-8686</w:t> </w:r> <w:r> <w:t xml:space="preserve"> </w:t> </w:r> </w:p>
It makes it look like this problematic hyperlink is in fact between the tab and left parenthesis characters. The hyperlink is not visible in the document.
