Re: Automatic Column and Row Header Reading
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
You need to tell NVDA where the headers are for it to read them. Press NVDA+shift+c to set column headers and NVDA+shift+r to set row headers. Note that you need to be in the first cell you want headers read.
11.2.1 of the NVDA user guide mentions that NVDA is able to
automatically announce appropriate row and column headers when
navigating around Excel worksheets.
I used to be able to achieve this but it doesn't appear to work
for me any more, and indeed as of NVDA 2019.3.
The cell coordinates just appear to read as usual, rather than
reading any additional cell references.
I have enabled the Report Table row / column headers option in
NVDA's Document Formatting settings.
y duCan anybodyplicate or suggest anything? This is highly
likely to be user error.
