Re: excel and headers not working as intended
Hi,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
You also need to check the tables , which is the one just before the column and row.

Subject: [nvda] excel and headers not working as intended
I don't see anything describing my situation in recent conversations so
am starting a new thread.
I'm going through the NVDA excel training and have found that when
following the precise directions in the training, headers are not
reading as it says they should.
I have a set of cells with data. I go to the start of the row that I
want to use as column headers and press NVDA+shift+c.
NVDA announces A2 set as start of column headers. This is correct.
However that header is not read when I navigate through the table.
If I repeat the set column header hotkey, it says that the cell is
already set as the column header. If I press it twice rapidly it says
that the column header is removed.
Everything works as it should right up until I actually start navigating
the table data and do not hear headers spoken.
I am using NVDA 19.2, MS excel 1908 most recent build.
Has anyone else seen this problem? Am I missing something in settings? I
do have the table information checkbox for headers selected in the
document settings of NVDA.
If the instructions in the excel tutorial are missing a step it would be
good to correct that as well.
Thank you in advance for help troubleshooting this.
