Re: ExCell will not read current cell

Van Lant, Robin

It’s not a matter of pressing F2; there really is a bug.  It’s quite strange.  At home I’m using the latest JAWS 2019 and Excel 2010 and I have this issue and cannot edit directly in the cells.  Here at work I’m on the latest JAWS 2019 (same as at home) and using Excel 2016 with no issues editing in the cells.  Definitely a bug.

Have you tried hitting the F2 key to allow editing?


Love in Christ
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.
Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm.
Ephesians 6:12, 13

Hi all,


Just noticed that when in Microsoft ExCell, as I add information into a cell, then try to read what I have entered, Jaws not reading. If I attempt to back-space to delete what I know I’ve entered incorrectly, again, Jaws will not read what is being deleted. Any fixes out there with Windows 10, Office 2010 and latest Jaws 2019 version/update? If I move out of the cell and then back into the cell at question, it will then read and only at this time.


Sorry if I am repeating any problems previously submitted…
