Hi,

 

I just reinstalled jaws from scratch, and still have the same issue.

 

How do I check this other editing thing?

 

Thanks,

 

Jessica

Well here we go…like I said earlier you need to have the ex. Downloaded to your device, and then make sure all Microsoft programs I mean word outlook etc are not running.

 

It works with narrator, because the both are created by Microsoft.  LOL

I wonder if the problem might be the editing in cell option in advanced is turned on.  I know that has caused some problems in the past, but it didn't seem to on my current install.

Do you install from the web site or do you down the ex. From the site and then install.

 

Also be sure you have everything not running I mean all programs outlook and others.

 

If you already have 2020 downloaded you can run it again and have it do a repair.

Hi,

I was using jaws2019.

 

I could also install NVDA, which I may do.

 

Thanks,

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.

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,
