moderated Re: Using excel with Jaws question

Chris Chaffin

Sorry, but still trying to figure out exactly what you are asking to do in Excel.

If you have one or multiple rows that you are switching between, then you could look into using Monitor cells. You can designate up to 10 cells as monitor cells. After designating a cell as a monitor cell, you then can have Jaws say what is in that cell no matter where you are on the worksheet, and you can also choose to move to one or multiple monitor cells if you want. All Jaws keystrokes dealing with monitor cells can be accessed by pressing Jaws key + the letter H.

If you are wanting to just return to the previous cell that you were at, there is not a particular keystroke for this. You can use f5 or control + G to bring up the Go to dialog box. You can then type in the cell you want to move to, or tab once for a list of prior cells to move to.

Hopefully this was of some help.

Hi folks:


I would like to know if there is a key board command when one is in excel to due the following


  1. You have a column of information that is thousand of lines in length. This column is sorted.
  2. Is there a key command that one can issue that will jump the focus  down the column  to where the information that the focus was on before issuing the command changes.


Thanks have a good and safe day everyone
