Re: cells in Excel not reading after a cell is typed in
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I’m not sure if this applies to Excel 365 but it does in my Excel 2007 version. In the Excel options, advanced category, the first field in the dialog is a check box entitled:
“After pressing enter, move selection”
If this box is checked the combo box following it can be set to Up, Down, Left, Right and when pressing enter after typing into a cell,focus is moved accordingly and the cell you have just left does not get read out, it just announces the co-ordinates of the cell focus has moved to.
If the check box is left unchecked, the related combo box is greyed out. Pressing enter will announce the data just entered, the co-ordinates of the cell and focus remains in the cell

Try typing nvda-tab and see if the cursor is in the cell or the editing region. For me, after hitting return when inputting data into a cell, the focus went back from the editor panel to the cell and I heard “cell C7” when I hit insert-tab. If instead you hear “edit cell edit focused” type escape and it should tell you the cell coordinates.

After typing into a cell, we press enter to exit the cell. After we've exited from a cell, it reads cell contents, but no column and row information. It read column and row information before we edited anything. After we have edited a cell, it no longer reads the column and row information, as I'm sure it should.
