moderated Re: excel with jaws

Van Lant, Robin

I can replicate what you are talking about.  If a group of cells with content is selected and then I hit either Control key, Excel opens some sort of small pop-up with options in it.  I hear JAWS say, ”Tab‑ Analysis Lens Formatting Tab‑ selected range”.  If you hit escape, the pop-up goes away, still leaving the cells selected, and you can do what you needed to do.  I only get this if I press Control alone. If I press Control and Shift together or another command that requires the Control plus another key, it does not occur. 


Hope this helps.
