Do you have the latest version of 2018--1804.26?

For me with Jaws 2018 when I press equals in a cell in excel, it says,
"edit, type in text". So, it does not tell me to type in a formula, but it
does tell me it is ready for editing. I then type in my formula.

Subject: Entering a formula in Excel with JAWS 2018

In JAWS 18 when I press '=' to begin a formula, JAWS says"Type in the
formula and press enter". In JAWS 2018 when I press "=", the '+'
appears to be accepted, but JAWS doesn't say anything. at all. Pressing
"=" a second time causes an error in the formula. The "=" keystroke is
accepted by Excel, but JAWS says nothing. Is there a setting I need to
change in order to get the information spoken???
