I suggest to add support for selecting text in areas Windows Live applications in Eclipse in Textpad, in Eudora, in Australian e-tax and bars in Microsoft Excel formulas.
Blocking #1917, #2691, #2946

Eclipse uses IAccessible2, so text selection is already supported there.
Changes:
Changed title from "Added support for selecting text in areas Windows Live applications in Eclipse in Textpad, in Eudora, in Australian e-tax and bars in Microsoft Excel formulas." to "Support text selection in display model"
Milestone changed from 2010.2 to None

(In #2691) This is because the editable text control used by Eudora is non-standard and doesn't support standard accessibility APIs, so we have to fall back to display model.

this ticket should announce what's being selected in excel. right?
when i want to modify a cell by pressing f2, and selecting some chars/numbers, NVDA doesn't announce what i'm selecting.
i use office 2010

It doesn't work in Excel. We're not sure why, but NVDA can't seem to detect any change to the colour of the text when it's selected. We can only guess that Excel uses some non-standard/strange way to highlight the selected text that we don't know how to detect.
