I've also noticed that JAWS reads the entire contents of a cell
as one word if it's a phrase. I'f I'm entering multiple words in a
cell, I can still edit in the usual way provided that I don't hit
enter nor leave the cell.
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Editing works character by character when there is only one word,
however long, in the cell.
My workaround is to retype the cell contents, as it's usually only
one line and not too complicated.
This said, I would like to see VFO return editing to the normal
character by character mode in all Excel circumstances.

Yes, I have seen this exact thing
that you have described. It always happens when the
formula is long, and intermittent with all other cells.
When it happens, I do the following:
to edit the cell
home to get to begin of the cell contents.
to select all of the cell content. Note, you can try
Control+A instead of steps 2 and 3, but I have found
inconsistencies with its use.
the contents into a NotePad file.
the informtion from the NotePad.
the contents of the cell from within the cell or outside
the edit mode.
sure you are inside the blank cell. Use F2 if
the contents from the NotePad file into the cell.
Lengthy process, but you can get
the job done.
Using Win 1803 and latest Jaws
2018 I run into a strange situation when trying to edit
cell contents in excel within MS Office 2016
Whether the cell contains text or
a formula, some cells can be edited by dressing F2 and
then arrowing back and forth making necessary corrections.
However, other cells doing the same only reads the entire
cell contents when arrowing either way. No pattern or
consistency to this behavior. Have others experienced this
too? Any work arounds?
