Thanks for your support! I discovered that the cell co-oridnates option was off in my NVDA settings under document presentation.
All the best,

Subject: Re: [nvda] Alternatives to Excel
Bear in mind that I'm not a regular user of Calc.
First, it's important to go into NVDA's document settings and ensure that the option for cell coordinates is checked. This is also true for Excel and it ensures that NVDA reads the cell coordinates, such as B1, C2, etc.
In the past I remember having to occasionally move focus away from and then back to the spreadsheet. I usually did this by pressing the alt key twice.
Finally, I think that LibreOffice is now up to version 6.3 and so it might be worth installing that version to see if performance improves.
