Re: JAWS 13 and Excel


Yes, the fix is that you have to assign new keystrokes to those scripts.
They changed the keystroke to something involving table mode. Look in the
Keyboard Manager for Excel and you will see those new keystrokes. If you
don't like them like I didn't like them then you can change them back to
what they once were, like I did. I also reassigned the keystrokes to read
the row headers.

Just something FS did to "help" us but really "hindered" us, in my opinion.
They could easily have provided two sets of keys to these scripts.

BTW I assigned Ctrl+Shift+1, 2, 3, 4 for the Column headers and Alt+Ctrl+1,
2, 3, 4 to the Row headers. This was to avoid conflict with the Quick Access
Tools that I always use, that are Alt+1, 2, 3, etc.

Hi All,

I have just installed JAWS 13, and I notice when using Excel 14
that the alt + 1, 2, 3, etc key strokes do not anounce the column
headings in the rows indicated. Does anyone know of a fix? Thanks so much!
