Thanks for posting this.

I went and turned it into a Word docx file with a table.
As well as an Excel spreadsheet because I prefer to have this kind of information in a file.
You can grab them both in a zip file from my web site. The heading level 2, toward the bottom of my page is creatively titled, Win 10 Calculator keyboard commands.

where you live and you buy something for \$32.50 and you want to know
how much it is with the tax added.
Just type 32.5+7%, as soon as you type the % symbol which is Shift + 5
on the number row, you hear 2.275 which is what 7% on \$32.50 is, then
press enter and you hear the final result, 34.775 It really is pretty
simple, use the standard symbols like + - * and / to add, subtract,
multiply or divide, enter always gives you the result and escape
clears what you just typed.

There's one thing I can think of, add the cc column to the list.
Go to view and manage view and go to column add the cc field and you shift up or down, depending if you want o read it first or last or whichever you fancy

I tried it just now, its working but jaws is not reading it. NVDA and narrator all read fine.
I did go to outlook message list of jaws but didn't work. It might work for you

I recommend that one always source software from its maker's website, not third party hosting sites, many (not all, but many) of which are known to introduce loathsome bundling (among other nasties) with the software they host.

Brave, for any platform it runs on, can always be obtained from:  https://brave.com/download/

The page will detect what OS and bit-depth the machine you're visiting with is running, and give that as the default for the download button.  But, immediately after that are the links for versions that would be used on other platforms like 32-bit Windows, Linux, MacOS Intel, MacOS ARM, etc.

Marty,

I can't speak to what JAWS does or does not announce, but I can enter addresses in the mailing list one at a time using NVDA, and they will be announced if I jump back/up one item in the list after completing it.  These entries are combo boxes so you have to complete them, go to the next one, and go back to consistently get them to announce.

I cannot explain (or successfully accomplish) a drag with hover and drop with a screen reader.  Perhaps someone else can.  I have never had much luck with drag and drop using screen reader emulation regardless of the screen reader.  I don't even have a lot of luck with emulated left and right click working as "the real mouse button" for each does.
