Yes,  Is in office 365.  It is several tabs once you get into the advanced section, well over half a dozen, it will be there.

Open Excel.  Hit alt+f and arrow up to options.  Arrow down to advanced, tab to "edit directly in cells, and uncheck it by hitting space bar.  Tab to ok and hit enter.

Well here we go…like I said earlier you need to have the ex. Downloaded to your device, and then make sure all Microsoft programs I mean word outlook etc are not running.

 

It works with narrator, because the both are created by Microsoft.  LOL

Do you install from the web site or do you down the ex. From the site and then install.

 

Also be sure you have everything not running I mean all programs outlook and others.

 

If you already have 2020 downloaded you can run it again and have it do a repair.

It all depends on why you can't edit it.  If it is protected, you have to turn that off.  Another thing I've found that made things get really weird is if you accidentally have scroll lock turned on, in which case it might seem like you can't edit because moving the cursor around doesn't seem to do anything.

 

Do you get any messages about protection when you open the spreadsheet, have you pressed f6 to see what might be going on in the other areas?  Btw, what version of office are we talking about here?

You can do this by making changes in the Navigation Quick Key Manager. Unfortunately, there is not as much flexibility there as I would like.  You can only use letters and numbers, and there isn’t a lot of wiggle room because most are already used.

 

I’ll explain my personal setup.  Obviously, this works for me, may not work for you.

 

I seldom use the P key to navigate by paragraphs.  I use even less the I key to navigate from list item to list item.

 

So I have assigned Place Marker to P, thereby freeing up the unassigned Any Link key to be assigned to K.  though I may not need it, I assigned Paragraph to I. 

 

Once you assign Any Link to some letter or number, you can use it like any other quick key, and it is very nice to have.

Tab will go from link to link and of course Jaws Key + F7 pulls all links on a website into a list view which is sorted in alphabetical order.

Hi group,

 

Using Jaws 2019. I want to use a single key to go through web site links, whether visited or not. I faintly recall this mentioned on here at some point. If I could use the U and V plus another key to hit unvisited, visited and all links, respectively, I would love it. I’m sure there is a way to do this, I’m just not familiar with everything Jaws has under the hood. Thanks for your help!

 

Best,

Norma

Well here we go…like I said earlier you need to have the ex. Downloaded to your device, and then make sure all Microsoft programs I mean word outlook etc are not running.

 

It works with narrator, because the both are created by Microsoft.  LOL

If you already have 2020 downloaded you can run it again and have it do a repair.

It all depends on why you can't edit it.  If it is protected, you have to turn that off.  Another thing I've found that made things get really weird is if you accidentally have scroll lock turned on, in which case it might seem like you can't edit because moving the cursor around doesn't seem to do anything.

 

Do you get any messages about protection when you open the spreadsheet, have you pressed f6 to see what might be going on in the other areas?  Btw, what version of office are we talking about here?

I have had no problem editing a spreadsheet with any version of jaws.  Sounds like system specific issues or an improper setting in excel options.

I think it would be better to install Jaws 2018 and have it handy in case this happens again.

Should I completely uninstall jaws and reinstall?

 

Right now, I have to use narrator to edit this file.

It all depends on why you can't edit it.  If it is protected, you have to turn that off.  Another thing I've found that made things get really weird is if you accidentally have scroll lock turned on, in which case it might seem like you can't edit because moving the cursor around doesn't seem to do anything.

 

Do you get any messages about protection when you open the spreadsheet, have you pressed f6 to see what might be going on in the other areas?  Btw, what version of office are we talking about here?

Well, if you can edit with Narrator but not jaws, it might be time to call Freedom Scientific.  They might have the answer, or at least want to know the problem exists.

Well, have you ever been able to edit a spreadsheet?  Try opening a new blank workbook in excel and see if that works.  If it does, then something is either wrong with the spreadsheet you are trying to edit, or there is some setting or other that needs changed.

It all depends on why you can't edit it.  If it is protected, you have to turn that off.  Another thing I've found that made things get really weird is if you accidentally have scroll lock turned on, in which case it might seem like you can't edit because moving the cursor around doesn't seem to do anything.

 

Do you get any messages about protection when you open the spreadsheet, have you pressed f6 to see what might be going on in the other areas?  Btw, what version of office are we talking about here?

I have found that Jaws 2018 works better in my spread sheets than Jaws 2019 does.

I experience that same problem using 2019.
