Re: Charts and Microsoft Excel 2016

This is directly from the NVDA user guide:
8.2.2. The Elements List
Similar to the web, NVDA has an Elements List for Microsoft Excel that allows you to list and access several different types of information. To access the Elements List in Excel, press NVDA+f7. The various types of information available in the Elements List are:
Charts: This lists all charts in the active worksheet. Selecting a chart and pressing enter or the Move to button focuses the chart for navigating and reading with the arrow keys.

Subject: [nvda] Charts and Microsoft Excel 2016


I am using Excel 2016 for a class I am taking this semester, and one of the workbooks we are using has a pie chart in it.

Does NVDA support reading these kinds of charts? If so, what needs to be done to enable the reading of them?

Also what types of charts, if any, does NVDA support the display of so that I can read the data contained in them?

I tried bringing up the elements list, and all I get is the spell check dialog box.

I cannot bring up browse mode either, pressing NVDA+Space does nothing.

This seems to only happen when charts are visible.

I am using the latest next snapshot of NVDA if this makes a difference.
If this works correctly in the official version, please let me know, and I'll switch back. I am hoping I do not have to resort to using another screen reader to complete this work.

Thanks in advance for any help you all can provide in this matter.
