Re: JAWS and Excel - problem reading cells still exists

Yes, good suggestion, but I did not have to expand any column in the past.

I don’t know if this is the cause of your issue, but it may be worth looking at.
When I was still able to use ZoomText I learned that unless I expanded the width of a column I couldn’t see all the characters in the cell. Expanding that column would reveal that text I KNEW was there.

Hi all,

I hope others have different results, but I'm still experiencing the
problem of JAWS not being able to read text in cells within Excel when I press F2.

I have discovered that if I type 8 characters or less, I can press F2
and arrow through the letters and make my edits. If the cell contains
a word or words with more than 8 characters, and if I press F2, JAWS
cannot read the text inside the cell. It appears it's the number of
characters in a cell that trips up JAWS.

Hmm, for whatever reason it seems as though VFO is struggling to fix
this problem since it has existed for quite a bit of time and
different versions of JAWS.
