Nvda 2019.1.1 has just been released to fix
this issue with excel 2007
Try updating nvda chances that this new
release will fix this issue
Using Windows 10 pro 64, NVDA 19.1, MS
I'm having trouble running Excel with
NVDA. With NVDA running, Excel
will only flash and stop; reverting to the
previous screen. If Excel is
already running, NVDA will not start.
Excel runs properly with JAWS
demo; runs, but not usably with Narrator.
I have used this combination (NVDA and
Excel) successfully for many
months. Perhaps I should go back to an
earlier version of NVDA. See my
note (below) posted on another list.
Anybody, thanks for ideas.
Trying different screen readers:
1. With NVDA, I get the results I described
in my message above.
2. With Narrator, Pressing enter on the
desktop shortcut, I get two or
three clicks and revert to the previously
running application. Pressing
the spacebar will start Excel, but no
useful information is read.
3. With JAWS (40 minute demo), Excel comes
up and allows normal
functioning: data entry, reading cells,
opening and saving file.
It appears to me that this is caused by an
interaction with the screen
I probably could get done what I need to in
less than forty minutes but
it sure is inconvenient. Maybe something
to ask the NVAccess folks.
