I have had no problem editing a spreadsheet with any version of jaws.  Sounds like system specific issues or an improper setting in excel options.

My spreadsheets work in Libra office with J 2019, but if I want to use Excel, I have to drop to J 2018.

Hi,

I was using jaws2019.

 

I could also install NVDA, which I may do.

 

Thanks,

 

Jessica

I think it would be better to install Jaws 2018 and have it handy in case this happens again.

,

No, still didn’t work.

 

Should I completely uninstall jaws and reinstall?

 

Right now, I have to use narrator to edit this file.

 

Thanks,

 

Jessica

Did you try hitting escape when it opens up?

I know that in word, that allows editing.

Hi,

No, it is private.

 

How do I know what setting needs to be changed?

I,

 

No messages, using office 365 and jaws2020.

 

I’ll try fnf6.

For me, f6 by itself its mute.

 

Thanks,

 

Jessica

It all depends on why you can't edit it.  If it is protected, you have to turn that off.  Another thing I've found that made things get really weird is if you accidentally have scroll lock turned on, in which case it might seem like you can't edit because moving the cursor around doesn't seem to do anything.

 

Do you get any messages about protection when you open the spreadsheet, have you pressed f6 to see what might be going on in the other areas?  Btw, what version of office are we talking about here?

I have found that Jaws 2018 works better in my spread sheets than Jaws 2019 does.

I experience that same problem using 2019.

Hi,

 

I have a spreadsheet that I need ot edit.

 

However, jaws won’t read where I am.

 

What do I do?

 

Thanks,
