Re: reading cell content in Excel with Braille


Hi Ann:
That's very interesting! I've certainly noticed some odd behavior with Braille and Jaws with Office 2016 and Win 10. But my display still shows me the formula of a cell in Excel. What display are you using? I've used Excel with both a Focus Blue and a Brilliant Bi and am able to read the cell formula and contents.

Subject: reading cell content in Excel with Braille

Excel 2016, Jaws 2018 and 2019.

The amount in cell p6, calculated by a formula, is 101188. JAWS speaks this clearly, saying "101188, has formula." The Braille display, however, displays only "has formula". If I have JAWS set to speak cell contents and coordinates, p6 says "p 6", but not the content of the cell . Turning off the coordinates gives me 'has formula'. How do I make the display show me the stinkin' 101188 in the cell???
