Thanks, I will try this sometime.
The key combinations can be difficult sometimes.

1. Go to the row with your headers.
2. Press alt+m, then m. JAWS will say "define name, dot dot dot."
3. Press enter to get into the edit field.
4. To have JAWS speak row titles only, type "rowtitle" and press enter.
5. To have JAWS speak column titles only, type "columntitle" and press enter.
6. To have JAWS speak both row and column titles, type "title".

These are Word commands interpreted by JAWS, so if you save the workbook and move it, the titles move too. If you use save-as to create another worksheet, the titles move too. More detailed instructions are available in the JAWS training materials.
