Re: New JAWS 2018 user Excel Question for keystrokes to read column headings and row titles

Ann Byrne

In the JAWS training materials under the help menu, there are instructions for teaching JAWS to read row and column titles using the bookmark feature of Excel itself. Setting the titles via this feature means that if you copy the workbook, or do save-as to create a new workbook, the settings come along. If you use the insert+ctrl+alt+r or c, you create a separate JAWS file which does not move to another copy of the workbook. So if you email it to your accountant, or she emails it to you, the settings stay in the creator's JAWS; whereas if you use the bookmark feature, the settings come along.
