Re: Slicers in Microsoft Excel.

Van Lant, Robin

I did a class once where they showed us slicers, but I have never had to use them.  This is probably a good instance for calling the Microsoft Accessibility hotline.   Same for the buttons.  I have seen when people create a macro in Excel and they can make a button to invoke the macros appear anywhere on the worksheet they want. I cannot imagine how to access that with speech, but you may be able to activate it by the regular macros menus, which is on the developer ribbon.

This is my first message here.


A friend has the problem of not being able to access what are called slicers, sometimes used in pivot tables, in Microsoft Excel. He writes:


Hi all,
Google has got me nowhere on this, so hoping some excel expert here can help

We have a lot of reports and dashboards built in excel at work. For filtering results, many of them use these visual sort of buttons called slicers.
Does anyone know if there is a way of accessing these slicers with a screen reader?
In addition, some have refresh buttons inside floating objects? Can I access those with screen readers?
