moderated Re: Reading visible text in a cell

thanks, Justin. F2 reads the full contents of the cell, whether it is visible on the screen or not. I want a command that reads only the 8 or so characters in the cell I am in, not the total contents that overflow behind the next cell.

It will say edit, and you can reas whatever is in the cell.

using the JAWS cursor to read the text on the screen is the only way that I'm aware of. if there's another way, I'd like to know as well.

The text "Wednesday is the middle of the week" has been entered into
cell a1 of a spreadsheet with default width of 8.11 points. It
overlaps, of course into at least the next two cells. How can I
determine what is actually displayed in a1? F2 reads all the text,
whether displayed or not. Routing JAWS to PC speaks
What else can I try?
