Re: excel problem

Here are the names of the cell headers:

Date systolic diastolic pulse

I told nvda that the date field was the header field.

When I go to todays date and I arrow to the next cell I hear the number 139 which was a prior cell content.  Also when I enter the new data it says it along with the ghost data.  I hope this helps.

Hi, Larry,

Id like to try to help.


Can you give us a real example and try to give a more complete description of the Excel  table?


Here are some questions to get started:

  1. Have you told NVDA which row or column is to be the header row?
  2. Exactly what number does Excel speak when you go to edit a new cell?
  3. Is the spoken number in the adjacent cell or somewhere else in the table?


All the best,

Hi All,


I am using the latest windows 10 and nvda.  I am using excel 2016. 

I created a spreadsheet to track my blood pressure but when I go to enter a number nvda speaks a prior number.  Is there a setting I need to change?  Also I have nvda set to announce headers but, it doesn’t do it.  Thanks for any help.
