If you are running JAWS 18 and above you would probably be better
served, unless you just want a one time read of your spreadsheet,
to use the Excel functionality that JAWS now recognizes.
Hit control/end to find the bottom right corner of your
spreadsheet. remember this cell address.
Place the PC cursor at the upper left intersection of your
Hit the applications key and arrow up a few slots to Define Name.
You can specify different headers for regions on your spreadsheet if you wish by naming the headers titleregion 1..n. Or you can use any name you wish so long as all names for regions are unique Mostly, though, you'll find simple spreadsheets with just one region. If so, type titleregion1..(ending cell address or greater (or your name for the region plus ..and end cell. and tab to the end and hit OK.
Your headers will be read AND can be saved with your spreadsheet.
The "Excel" way is now the only permanent way to save headers for JAWS-speak.
You can also go to define name by using the name manager in the
Formulas menu. You will need to use the name manager to revise or
to delete your named headers.
