I’m using Microsoft 365 and the latest JAWS. Whenever I leave an Excel spreadsheet and then return to it my focus is always on the last cell I was in. I’ve never set anything for this to occur, but it always does. Good luck.
As I explained in my initial email, I have accessibility settings (control+alt+Z) enabled
My question wasn’t about how to read cell information, but rather how to jump to the end of the data or alternatively, how to have focus land on the last row of data when opening the Google sheet or refreshing the same document.
IN any event, someone else on another list was able to provide an answer on at least how to jump to the last row of data by invoking the pass through keyboard command (insert+3)then control+down arrow.
It would still be nice to know how to have a sheet always open on the last row of data, but I guess that’s more a general Google docs question and not necessarily a screen reader one.
You need to enable google keyboard support by hitting ctrl - alt - z
Then turn off jaws browse mode insert - z
Thats where you can read all the cell or info on google sheet.
Below is the website where google list all of the keyboard shortcut

Subject: How to navigate to the end of data in a Google spreadsheet with Jaws?
Does anyone know how to jump to the end of the data in a Google docs spread sheet with Jaws or if it is even possible?
The Excel commands with the end/home plus the different arrow keys don’t appear to work. I have both the accessibility and Braille display settings enabled as well as the use similar
commands as in other spread sheet programs or whatever it’s called.
I’ve poked around in the list of keystroke commands (including for navigation) also in settings and didn’t find anything either.
Ideally, I’d like for focus to land on the last row with data as this spread sheet in particular is always being updated. Indeed, when viewing a Google spreadsheet with VoiceOver
on the iPhone, focus is always on the last row of data when opening the document, but working with a spreadsheet or reviewing information this way at least for me, isn’t efficient enough to make it the primary means in which I wish to work.
For the record, I’m using the most current versions of Jaws 2021 and Edge.
