Re: NVDA not reading column headings in Excel tables

Lars Holm Sørensen <lhs@...>

Hi Brian


Yes I am aware of this method to define column and row headings. I just do not understand why this method is necessary for having column headings announced in a simple table in Excel. Both Jaws and Narrater (I think) will announce Excel table column headings without first manually defining them.


Anyway thanks a lot for your reply Brian.
