Re: Accessing cell content in Braille in Excel for Office 365
Louis and others,
The question is : is this a Microsoft or NVDA issue?
I did not want to mention the screen reader’s name here, but as you did, I don’t encounter the problem with JAWS when the checkbox is enabled.

Unchecking this box effects JAWS as well.
When the NVDA, or Microsoft, error is corrected, you can check this box, and your Excel editing will go faster.

Hello Louis and all,
Thank you for this tip, it works!
Does anyone know what this checkbox is for?
Why checking this box prevents NVDA from using braille in cells but not other screEn readers?
This problem comes up periodically. You can try unchecking the box which says “allow editing directly in cells”. In Excel 365, do this:
This is the same here.
It seems to work better with other screen readers.
May be I should test with former NVDA version to see when this bug has started.

In Excel with pressing f2, I can view cell contents in Braille but not use cursor to edit. I can use the Braille keyboard to edit but the Braille doesn't update until I get out of that edit field
