column/row headers not reading in Excel 2013

Jenine Stanley <jenine@...>

I’ve had this issue since I think the last build, but am just now getting around to asking about it.


I use Excel 2013, Windows 10 latest public build and now NVDA 2019.1.


I use the command to set a column header, or row header but more often column header, and nothing happens. I’m using NVDA+shift+C.


This issue happens no matter the size of the spreadsheet. I’ve tried making it an official table first then choosing the column headers and that doesn’t seem to have an effect. Is there something that’s changed about Excel, a command or setting I need to change?

Otherwise, I love NVDA with Excel! Can’t say that loudly enough.
