Hello Ramesh,


When you hear unknown, try hitting the left alt key twice in rapid succession. This usually makes NVDA speak the contents of the cell.


You mention pressing the carriage return after editing the cell. Pressing Enter will close the cell, stop editing and drop the cursor down to the next row in the same column.

Try pressing home and see if this moves to the beginning of the edited cell and speaks the first word. If that works, then press right and left arrow keys to move forward and back along the contents of the cell character by character.


Does this help?


All the best,

Dear Louis

I have done this trick already.
But did not work for me.

Hello Ramesh,


This problem comes up periodically.  You can try unchecking the box which says “allow editing directly in cells”.  In Excel 365, do this:

Open an Excel spreadsheet. 

Type alt + f. Up arrow to options, hit enter. Down arrow to advanced. Tab until you find the box which says “allow editing directly in cells. Uncheck that box. Shift + Tab until you reach OK. Hit enter.
