Subject: [jaws-users] looking for two Excel keystrokes -- if they exist
There are two things I miss from using Window Eyes with Excel. I’m wondering if an equivalent exists in JAWS.
First, Is there a way, other than to arrow away and back, to have JAWS announce the current cell coordinates? This is particularly helpful when in the middle of typing a formula and I need to recall the current cell I’m in.
Second, I sometimes need to count a subset of rows or columns in a file. For example, today I was looking at a list of all employees and I just needed to count out the number in a particular team. With Window Eyes, I would start at the first cell and arrow down till the last one. By default, Window Eyes would announce the number of columns or cells selected, depending on which way I was moving. Is there some way to ask JAWS how many rows, columns or cells are currently highlighted? I tried reading the status line, but that didn’t’ seem to work.
Using JAWS 2019 latest build with Windows 10 and Excel 2016.
