Fair enough, but if there is no way for Jaws to speak this information automatically when you move to a cell with a comment, there should definitely be a keystroke to make Jaws speak it.

the below is correct, and also if the mouse is hovered over that little red indication a tooltip pops up displaying the contents of the note to a sighted user.

To the sighted I think it just shows a little red triangle to click on to read it, and has no affect on the workings of the spread sheet.

Does the comment then exist along wigth the numeric datum or formula?  Does it have any effect on the processing of the datum?

Hi Brian,

 

Dave’s write, if you use the application key you can arrow to insert comment and hit enter.

Type your comment and hit enter.

Then, I believe you can tab to the next cell or arrow down, etc.

To bring up a list of cells with comments, its control+shift+apostrophe.

 

I do not know if there is a setting to have Jaws automatically read the comments.

 

HTH,

Richard

Excel not only has data but occasionally one needs to make a note about the data. How would I do this in excel?
