It may be something else together with the FN key.

On a normal keyboard you have to tap it twice quickly to toggle it on or off and yes, that was a great recommendation, it just happened to me the other day, but it’s such an automatic fix that I didn’t even think of it.

You should be able to put JAWS in keyboard help mode by pressing Insert + 1 on the number row and then tap each key to locate the scroll lock key. I'm pretty sure all laptops should have one. Keyboard help is a toggle so you can turn it off with another Insert + 1.

I don't know that I have one. 

I'm on an HP laptop. 

If I don't have that particular key, how would I emulate it?

Check your scroll lock key, that'll do it every time.  Make sure it is off and then relaunch excel.

Hi everyone,


Today, Excel stopped reading cells to me entirely. I’m able to use commands such as find, but it wont read anything in the cells once whatever I’m finding is actually found. Any ideas what’s going on?  I’m only having this problem in Excel btw, Word and Outlook work just fine and I don’t use any of the other products in the suite to test them out.
