Hello,
That is good to know. If you don't mind, could you please tell me what
version of NVDA you are using so I can try and figure out why this is not
working for me.
Thanks,

Jeffrey

Hi,
it works for me as designed in Excel 2016. I press NVDA-F7, then I select
chart and then I press the move to button. I'm now placed on the chart and
use the curser keys to read x and y axis and all values.

Regards,
Ralf

Hello,

Thank you, but I already read that section in the user guide before
posting. as I said in my original message, I cannot get into either browse
mode or bring up the elements list when a chart is visible and in focus when
that sheet in the workbook is displayed.

Thanks,

Jeffrey

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.

Hello,

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.
