NVDA next-13701,967f1697, Win 10.14393.

NVDA does not switch languages when reading text in Wordpad. I did not notice this was a feature of Wordpad until very recently when I found out JAWS 18 does do this.

You can generate a file with multiple languages in Wordpad by typing with different keyboard layouts, but also some programs like ABBYY FineReader 12 generate properly formatted RTF's with tagged languages. Here's A simple one-liner example RTF which I can't attach to the ticket directly.

P2 because it will help multilingual users and I think it should be fairly easy to implement.

Technical: See ITextFont::GetLanguageID.
