Jaws does not read anything but the top line, like it's stuck.
I can open Libra Office Calc and no such issues with Jaws 2019.
Or I can close Jaws 2019 and open 2018 and MS Excel works fine.

If you don’t mind sharing, what issues were you having with Office 2000 excel with the  newer version of Jaws?

I use Jaws 2019 with Excel in Office 2016 at work every day and have no major issues. I don’t mess around with charts, graphs, et cetera, just routine data entry, and it works fine.

I am sorry, Glen, but your statement that Jaws 2019 does not work with Excel is absolutely incorrect. I virtually live in Excel when I am working and I haven’t used anything but Jaws 2019 since it came out, in fact, well before then since I am on the Jaws Beta list.

You might need to keep an older copy of Jaws installed for that program.

I still use Office 2000, because it does all I need it to do, and Jaws 2019 does not work with Excel, but earlier versions do.

I’ve heard that access 2007 is the latest version that works well with Jaws?  Is this true?  Is the accessibility problem in the inputting of data and reading the fields, or in designing your data base?

How does Access work with NBDA?

Does anyone use a data base that works well with Jaws?  If so, which one?

Thanks much.
