The JAWS training materials has a couple of tutorials on Excel, one illustrating the speaking of row and column titles using the bookmark feature of the Excel application.

I have been working on this and my original instructions, with some slight modifications, do work (or do for me with JAWS 2019 and Excel 2016).   That being said, there are multiple ways to accomplish what's being sought and I really have no idea how most who can't actually see a spreadsheet deal with across row or down column selection.

One can select a range of cells, then define it as a Title Row (which is the titles of the respective columns that row is above), and the same for a Title Column, and define it that way.  Or one can simply select the first cell of the title row/column, and use a special Excel Keyword for the name followed by dot dot (with no spaces) and the designation of the cell that ends the series (which will be a cell to the right if it's a Title Row or a cell below if it's a Title Column).

There also exists the option of using an Excel table in the spreadsheet, too, and that can be very convenient for dealing with needs for insertion of additional rows and things like Total rows, which can just slide on down (or up, if rows are deleted) and the formulae handle this seamlessly.

How do you, here, set this sort of thing up, and how do you go about multi-selection of ranges in a single row or column.  Knowing about common selection methods used for blocks of cells would be interesting, too.

I've never had a client where I was working with them doing heavy duty work with Excel spreadsheet creation or modification.  Most of the work was about accessing existing spreadsheets, which is an entirely different kettle of fish.  That's how the stuff related to designating titles came about, because it becomes rather hellish to know where you are in a complex Excel table if you are distracted, or need to shift focus to something else, and come back in without knowing the row/column you're working with and what it represents.

What Russell describes also works just fine, if you don't highlight the
column or row and use the application menu and select "Insert..." you
get
the same dialogue as you get with control + NumPad Plus which is you get
a
little menu and you can select to Insert an entire column or entire
row.
Control + Shift + = also gets you that same menu
You can also use the ribbon shortcut Alt + H followed by I and C for
column

or R for row.
Just Alt + H followed by I gets you to the insert menu where you can
also
insert a sheet (S).
Alt + H followed by D gets you to the equivalent delete menu.

Hi George,

If you wish to insert a new column, place your cursor in the column to
the
right of where you wish to insert the new column. Select the column you
are

in by pressing CTRL + spacebar. Jaws will say "Selected entire column".
Now

press the applications key and arrow down to "Insert" and press
enter. A new

blank column will be inserted to the left of the column you were in.

If you wish to insert a new blank row, place the cursor in the row
below

by pressing

Shift + spacebar. Jaws will say "Selected entire row". Now press the

If you wish to edit a formula, or see what the formula is, move to the

Hope this helps.

Hola!

I am using the latest versions of Win10 and Office (not 365) on my
DeskTop
and I have a couple of questions, if I may:

1. How can I Insert a new vertical Column between the existing
horizontal
Rows,

2. How can I Copy and then Edit the existing Formulas?

I knew how to accomplish these actions within the old Excel program,
but
cannot figure it out with the Ribbons. I know how to navigate the
Ribbons
to some degree, but can't identify the Insert New Column and Edit
Formulas
items.

Thanks in advance.

Can you also press the application key (shift+f10) and bring up the context
menu to insert a row or column?

There are quite a few ways to skin a cat so to speak in most Microsoft
programs.
What Russell describes also works just fine, if you don't highlight the
column or row and use the application menu and select "Insert..." you get
the same dialogue as you get with control + NumPad Plus which is you get a
little menu and you can select to Insert an entire column or entire row.
Control + Shift + = also gets you that same menu
You can also use the ribbon shortcut Alt + H followed by I and C for column
or R for row.
Just Alt + H followed by I gets you to the insert menu where you can also
insert a sheet (S).
Alt + H followed by D gets you to the equivalent delete menu.

Hi George,

If you wish to insert a new column, place your cursor in the column to the
right of where you wish to insert the new column. Select the column you are
in by pressing CTRL + spacebar. Jaws will say "Selected entire column". Now
press the applications key and arrow down to "Insert" and press enter. A new
blank column will be inserted to the left of the column you were in.

If you wish to insert a new blank row, place the cursor in the row below
where you wish the new row to be inserted. Select the entire row by pressing
Shift + spacebar. Jaws will say "Selected entire row". Now press the
applications key and arrow down to "Insert" and press enter. A new blank row
will be inserted above the row you were in.

If you wish to edit a formula, or see what the formula is, move to the cell
with the formula and press F2. This will place you in edit mode and you can
read the formula and make any changes you want.

Hope this helps.

Russell

Hi Sieghard,

Yes, if you go to Save As and save the workbook with a new name, the defined cell names are saved to the new workbook.

I wonder if you go to "Name Manager", under the Formula tab, press CTRL+ right arrow and you should land on "Name Manager", and from there delete any names you have defined, and then define all your cell names again? I wonder if there are names defined already that might be causing things not to work as they ought to?

What you want can be done easily manually by first creating copies of

Then, place your cursor in the cell of the first sheet where you want

Pardon my error, that last technique is the "when I only want it during
this session" method
with JAWS. This is how to set them in the
spreadsheet itself such that JAWS will recognize their existence and
announce them whenever you open a specific spreadsheet:

Assigning a Title Row (Column Titles) and/or Title Column (Row Titles)
in Excel

You can assign column and row titles in Excel.
These are nice because they always work with Excel and are saved to the
workbook. There's no risk of losing a setting in your screen reader.

To add column and row title names:
* Focus on the first cell in the row or column or at the first
cell where the title row and title column intersect
* Open the Name dialog:


i. Open the Formula ribbon (ALT-M)


ii. Activate the “Define Nameâ€&#65533; command (M)


iii. Within the drop-down list, activate “Define Nameâ€&#65533;


iv. The “New Nameâ€&#65533; dialog opens



Focus is placed in the name field. Within the name field, you can name
the focused cell or selected range of cells. In this case, we’re
naming the column or row title:
* Name the cell using the following rules

i. Start the range name with the label
that tells Excel you’re creating a title range
* Title – This tells Excel the column and row that intersect at
the active cell are a title row and column
* ColumnTitle – This tells Excel the focused column contains the
titles for the rows within the range
* RowTitle – this tells Excel the focused row contains titles for
thee columns in the range

ii. Add a name for the range
* Title_WidgetSales
* ColumnTitle_WidgetSales
* RowTitle_WidgetSales

iii.
Optional - Add the last cell in the range preceded by two periods
* Use this when you have multiple regions in a worksheet
* Title_WidgetSales..J25
* ColumTitle_WidgetSales..h32
* RowTitle_WidgetSales..r12
* Remember the cell address referenced is the last cell in the
range for which you are creating titles

The next field in the dialog sets the scope for the name. this is a
combo box. Use UP and DOWN ARROW to choose from between:
* Workbook - the title Is unique and can’t be used elsewhere in
a workbook
* A Specific Worksheet - the name can be used elsewhere in a
workbook

You can add a comment for the named cell or region, this is strictly
for your personal reference and doesn’t affect the echo of the column
or row title name

The last field references the cell name or range of selected cells
you’re naming. You can leave this field alone.

Activate the OK button to save the name and close the dialog.

Save the workbook and the titles are permanently saved and will work on
any computer.

If you have titles set to echo in JAWS, the titles will echo and you
won’t lose the settings.

I find the easiest shortcut for inserting new rows and columns is Control + NumPad Plus, it will ask you if you want to insert a new row or a new column, Insert + NumPad Minus allows you to delete a column or row.
As for copying, all you have to do is press Control + C on a cell containing a formula.

First I have to get it to work in the first place. For some reason I can’t get automatic readings of row and column headings to work using this method at all.

I already have a template of this workbook set up and I usually just open it each time a new month starts and then use F12 to save it but giving it the name of the month.

For example, my template is Sales Summary and I then save it, for example, as Sales Summary June 2019.

I wouldn’t mind setting up the row and column title reading on each sheet separately if I could just get it to work.

Hi Sieghard,

 

I’m not able to set this up by defining a name on a worksheet and then copying that sheet multiple times. Even if I set the scope to the worksheet rather than the workbook, Jaws doesn’t read column or row headings on the next sheets.

 

What you want can be done easily manually by first creating copies of your first sheet 31 times, one sheet for each day of the month. Then, place your cursor in the cell of the first sheet where you want to define the name, press the applications key, up arrow to “Define name…” and press enter. Type “Title” if you wish both column and row headings to be read by Jaws and press enter. Now, move to sheet two and do the same, except this time type “Title2” as the name. Continue doing this on subsequent sheets, each time increasing the number after “Title”. Note that there is no space between “Title” and the number.

 

Not sure if this helps or if you wanted a more automatic method, but I can’t seem to do it any other way. I even tried grouping the sheets and then defining a name, but this doesn’t work.

 

Cheers,

 

Russell

Hi Brian,

 

I attached a little sample spreadsheet I made. I thought I followed your steps to set it up so Jaws will read the column and row titles, but I can’t get it to work, what am I doing wrong?

Pardon my error, that last technique is the "when I only want it during this session" method with JAWS.   This is how to set them in the spreadsheet itself such that JAWS will recognize their existence and announce them whenever you open a specific spreadsheet:

Assigning a Title Row (Column Titles) and/or Title Column (Row Titles) in Excel

You can assign column and row titles in Excel. These are nice because they always work with Excel and are saved to the workbook. There's no risk of losing a setting in your screen reader.

To add column and row title names:

    1. Focus on the first cell in the row or column or at the first cell where the title row and title column intersect
    2. Open the Name dialog:

                                                               i.      Open the Formula ribbon (ALT-M)

                                                             ii.      Activate the “Define Name” command (M)

                                                           iii.      Within the drop-down list, activate “Define Name”

                                                           iv.      The “New Name” dialog opens

 

Focus is placed in the name field. Within the name field, you can name the focused cell or selected range of cells. In this case, we’re naming the column or row title:

    1. Name the cell using the following rules

                           i.  Start the range name with the label that tells Excel you’re creating a title range

        1. Title – This tells Excel the column and row that intersect at the active cell are a title row and column
        2. ColumnTitle – This tells Excel the focused column contains the titles for the rows within the range
        3. RowTitle – this tells Excel the focused row contains titles for the columns in the range

                            ii.      Add a name for the range

        1. Title_WidgetSales
        2. ColumnTitle_WidgetSales
        3. RowTitle_WidgetSales

                              iii.      Optional - Add the last cell in the range preceded by two periods

        1. Use this when you have multiple regions in a worksheet
        2. Title_WidgetSales..J25
        3. ColumTitle_WidgetSales..h32
        4. RowTitle_WidgetSales..r12
        5. Remember the cell address referenced is the last cell in the range for which you are creating titles

The next field in the dialog sets the scope for the name. this is a combo box. Use UP and DOWN ARROW to choose from between:

  • Workbook - the title Is unique and can’t be used elsewhere in a workbook
  • A Specific Worksheet - the name can be used elsewhere in a workbook

You can add a comment for the named cell or region, this is strictly for your personal reference and doesn’t affect the echo of the column or row title name

The last field references the cell name or range of selected cells you’re naming. You can leave this field alone.

Activate the OK button to save the name and close the dialog.

Save the workbook and the titles are permanently saved and will work on any computer.

If you have titles set to echo in JAWS, the titles will echo and you won’t lose the settings.

If you use save-as for the new sheets, it works.
