I have constructed a test workbook without any blank lines.
Still I cannot get NVDA to read the coordinates as it should. I
have tested with NVDA 2019 and 2017 with the same result, so I am
beginning to wonder whether there is some type of setting in Excel
itself which is causing this to happen.

Have you any blank columns separating
blocks of columns. If so, you would need to set the column
headings on the first cell in the heading row of each block to
make NVDA call out the column headings for that block.
Yep, I did that also, but still nothing appears to change. I
followed the example in the Excel with NVDA study material.

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
I used to be able to achieve this but it doesn't
appear to work for me any more, and indeed as of NVDA
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.
