Hi,Palmer. Sorry it has taken longer than I wanted to get back to you on this.
A few years ago, I too was frustrated as an Excel user relying on a
screen reader; because all too often, Websites or individuals would
describe how to get things done in Excel solely through
visually-oriented suggestions about clicking and dragging or
activating this or that using the ribbon. But Microsoft always has
built a lot of keyboard shortcuts into its Office suite--it's just
that most people don't think to use them.
for a comprehensive set of these shortcut keys particular to Excel.
If you want to do something specific that seems difficult or that is
not listed here, contact me offline at email@example.com and I will
attempt to help you figure it out. I dpo not use Excel for
super-complex graphing or formula creation, but I have learned on the
fly how to interact with Office help instructions, how to work with
multiple sheets at a time and switch between worksheets, and how to
manipulate a worksheet to give me what I need at any given time.
There are the typical jaws help libraries you can get by typing jaws +
h, jaws + w, jaws + f1 twice quickly.
Also, here's a list of useful excel shortcuts:
