Hi Tom

 

Check out this official tutorial from the Freedom Scientific team. It's dated, but still relevant. The great thing about doing it this way is that the header information is saved in the Excel file. Therefore, if you share it with someone else, it will still work regardless of the screen reader they’re using.

 

Column and Row Headers in Excel with JAWS and MAGic (freedomscientific.com)

 

Note that if you only have one data region on a sheet, you don’t have to specify a cell range. The headers will simply continue as you add more row/column data.

 

All the best.

Hi,

 

Using: Jaws 22, Win 10 and Excell 2013

 

 

How can Jaws be set up so column and row headings will be spoken when arrowing across or up/down a Excel spread sheet?

 

 

Thanks
