moderated JAWS not reading titles in Excel


Gene Warner
 

Hi everyone!

I had JAWS doing this without any problems, then it just stopped doing it.

In Excel I define my column titles by selecting the range of cells that have the titles in them. Then I right click (or press the application key), then I find the define name option and select it, I then put in the name "columntitles" and press enter. I have check the quick settings and the "Monitor Cell Titles Read" is checked. But JAWS does not read the column titles. What am I missing?

Thanks!

In JAWS quick settings, be sure that "define name column and row titles override" is turned off.
