Oh wonderful, Louis, thanks so much! That worked like a charm! Now I can edit cells as usual! Thanank you!
Now today’s problem is that when I’m in outlook, typing a message, NVDA freezes and I have to hit control-alt-N to get it back, and sometimes I lose the message I was typing. It worked fine till I had a guy from Microsoft accessibility yesterday who wanted to reinstall my NVDA to fix the Excel problem, and ever since then it’s done this. I even had to go back into Jaws to tyhpe a message today! But I haven’t given up yet.

For Excel, try this.
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.
As for the capitalization pitch indicator, I have noticed that some voices do not show the capitalization shift change. For this reason, in the Speech option, I have chosen One Core Voices, and I use Microsoft Zira.
That voice does give me a capitalization pitch change.
I promise this is the last question for today! But I notice that when I want to edit a cell in Excel, and hit F2, my braille display (a very old Focus 80) doesn’t track, and the cursor routing keys don’t work and my edits don’t show up until I hit enter. Do I have some setting wrong? Or is this a problem with NVDA and the Focus. Also, my capital alerts aren’t working, with no differentiation for capitalized letters, even though I have it set in settings to notify me with pitch of any capitalization changes.
I’ve been playing with this most of the day now, and I think I’m going off to read a book. I bet everyone’s breathing a sigh of relief!
