Re: Incorrect Keystroke in Excel Training

I agree that it's certainly preferable and desirable that mistakes never find their way into product manuals or tutorials and that is the goal of anybody who writes documentation. However, it's inevitable that errors do creep in from time to time. If we can let NV Access know they can certainly correct it and update the manual quickly. Compare that to the way we had to do things prior to electronic documentation when sheets were printed containing errors and what the corrections should be.

Subject: [nvda] Incorrect Keystroke in Excel Training

In section 3.7
"Adding Headers"
an incorrect keystroke is given.
The text states:

To set the column containing row headers, move to the first cell that
contains a row heading. Next, press NVDA+control+r. In the plant example,
column A contains the name of the plant in each row. Setting this as the row
headers means NVDA reads the name of each plant while navigating down the
rows.

This keystroke is incorrect. the paragraph should read:

To set the column containing row headers, move to the first cell that
contains a row heading. Next, press NVDA+shift+r. In the plant example,
column A contains the name of the plant in each row. Setting this as the row
headers means NVDA reads the name of each plant while navigating down the
rows.

The text should be corrected, or should have an erata page at leats, with
this information.
