Re: Excel not speaking the first digit when a number is entered

Van Lant, Robin

Wow, I haven't seen any of this behavior in Excel. There are certainly configuration differences with whether users have JAWS set to read contents, cell coordinates, or both, but this is different. Wish I had an idea for you. Maybe temporarily use JAWS default settings to see if the issue is resolved. Use the layered command of JAWS key spacebar, then z.

Subject: Excel not speaking the first digit when a number is entered

Excel 2016; JAWS 2019, windows 10.

When I type a number into a cel and press tab, JAWS speaks all the
digits except the first one. So '23' becomes '3', "2003'
becomes "003", '2203' becomes '203', and so on. Am I the only one
experiencing this?
