Subject: Re: [nvda] column/row headers not reading in Excel 2013
Sorry I wasn’t clear. You are correct in that when I press NVDA+Shift+c it says “Set A1 as column header. It does not read the headers when I navigate though and I will now go try your fix as I’m sure that’s what’s wrong here. I had a feeling it was a setting.
And this is why we love NVDA! Thanks.

When you say you are setting the column header with NVDA+control+c and nothing happens, do you mean NVDA reads nothing when you press NVDA+control+c to set the header, or it's not reading the header as you navigate around your spreadsheet?
When you press NVDA+control+c, NVDA should report: "Set A1 as start of column headers" (where I had the focus in A1 when I pressed the command). If that isn't being read, is the focus on a cell in Excel AND you are not editing the cell? If you have started typing something in the cell or pressed F2 to edit it, Excel will be in edit mode and you won't be able to set the header until you finish (enter) or cancel (escape) editing that cell.
If it's not reporting headers as you navigate, then press NVDA+control+d to open NVDA's document formatting settings, and be sure that "Row / Column headers" is checked (press alt+e until the focus jumps to that option).
