Re: JAWS and Excel

Thanks Nicole,
I tried the scroll lock key which didn't do anything I could tell. My next thought is maybe something on the VIEW menu inside Excel. I thnk I'm gonna start taking things apart here in preparation to reinstalling some stuff. There are more problems than just excel. So, here goes.

I think this is an Excel problem. Your first thing to try is to hit the
scroll lock key, as this can cause some problematic things to happen.

Don't know if this got through before:

Hi JAWS Folks,

I am using MS Office 2003 (Excel) on an XP Pro machine with JAWS 11 and
a powerbraille 80. All of a sudden, JAWS fails to read my Excel
worksheets. Moving from cell to cell makes no sound nor display.
Otherwise, JAWS is OK--though a bit slow.Would anyone have a clew what
I might have done and how to fix it? Should I look to JAWS or Office
for a fix?
