Re: accessible spreadsheet program using NVDA

Dan Beaver

I have been trying to use Libreoffice and have found that spreadsheets are not that accessible. I can't read the contents of cells without hittingh f2 and putting the cell in edit mode. I wouldn't exactly call that accessible. There are other accessibility issues too but I'll not go through all of them at this time.

been taken out of commission and gathering dust somewhere you can request
that Microsoft re-activate the number of licenses that match the number of
"no longer operational" machines.

You could probably call Microsoft's Disability Services to get
assistance with this if your situation matches what I've mentioned above.
