Ok here is what I did.

I went into my jaws 2018 ENU folder, and copied the file Excel Classic, and pasted it in my jaws 2019 ENU folder, and now I don’t hear the coordinates.

Thanks Dave for giving me the name of the file.



Actually, I'm running Office 2007 and I can turn off the cell coordinates just fine. Yes, using the latest JAWS 2019 on a Windows 7 OS. I see that the scripts loaded with Excel is called "Excel Classic". Perhaps if you linked that script with your execution of Excel, you could revert back to not hearing the coordinates.

This started happening with the release of Jaws2019 when they said they were having Jaws handle the different MS Office versions separately instead of globally.

When I called Vispero supportabout the coordinates setting not working any longer in 2010, they told me that they no longer support any MS Office below 2013.


Keep Smiling!

Hey Gang.

I’m running jaws 2019, MS 2010, on a 64 bit laptop.

In my excel sheet I don’t want to hear any of the Coordinates. When I had jaws 2018, it worked, and hear is what I did for jaws 2019, but I still hear A1.

What can I do to shut them off?

Thanks Patti
