Figuring out formulas in Excel 2013 with Windows 10 & Jaws 17
Lauren Snyder
Hi:
Can someone tell me how to calculate formulas like sum in Excel 2013, Jaws 17 & Windows 10? I used to with Excel 2013, Jaws 14 & Windows 8, go to formulas tab and select insert function. I used to be able to tab through to hear my choices. I don’t hear that any more. By pressing on enter or something I somehow got it to calculate, but now Jaws just says the column & cell number and contains formula and doesn’t tell me what the answer is.
Please advise; thank you.
Sincerely,
Lauren

I set up a sheet with:
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
A1: 2 A2: 2 A3: =A1+A2 When I then move onto a3 jaws says "4 has formula a3" " And if I copy the cell (with ctrl+c) it copies the 4, not the formula.

Hi,
Excel 2016, JAWS 17, Windows 10 – no problems with summing.
Maybe the ribbon is minimized? Or the excel sheet or the Excel window is to small and JAWS can’t read the text?
Other possibilities are you have turned on „Show Formulas“ (options on ribbon) or automatic calculation is turned off in Excel options. Or the cell format is text.(application key, arrow to format, enter, ....)

I can answer one of those questions. The one about Show Formulas. There is a keystroke for this. It’s the control key plus the accent grave key. That’s the key to the left of the number one on the keyboard. It’s a toggle. Hit it once it shows formulas, hit it again it shows the values.

To turn on automatic calculations (by default it is on) Press alt+f Move with up arrow key to Options, open it, move with down arrow key to Formula tab. Then press TAB once There it is: checkbox automatic calculation. Mark it with space ant then enter to close the window
To maximize Excel program window Alt+space bar, arrow up to option Maximize, enter
Unfortunately i don’t know how to maximise the Excel sheet window.
