Thank you for your description of the key
Please don't spend any time on researching alt+e, I think I know
what the equivalent is.
Also thanks for the link. Setting my ribbon to English is not
something I want to do, as you said, it changes the key sequences
I am familiar with and it would also make communication with other
colleagues about Word more difficult. :)

For renaming a sheet:
Alt + H stands for 'Home' tab in the ribbon.
'O' stands for Format which is found under Cell styles
group which is a sub-group of Styles under Home.
'R' is for 'Rename Sheet' which will come down in the list
after activating the Format menu.
For moving, I have no idea what Alt + E is for, pressing
that hotkey just places me on the Home tab, I think probably
its tab is hidden right now in my ribbon. I will try to search
on that and come back if I am able to figure that out.
Alt + E generally contains commands to copy, paste, delete,

suggests that you can use Office in German language with just
the ribbon in English, maybe it will help you. Caution: Moving
to English ribbon will also change other shortcuts for you,
which you may already feel comfortable with in the German
Thank you for your reply, I'm glad to hear that it works.
Unfortunately, I can't work with your specified sequence
of keys, because my Windows and Office are in German, so
the key sequence would be different, too. Could you please
let me know what the keys stand for? Then I could look for
the respective sequence in my version of Office.

To rename a sheet use - Alt + H, O, R - commands in
specified sequence. A modal will open up, you can
provide a new name and hit Enter.
To move or duplicate, use Alt + E, M - you can
schoose to move current sheet ahead of any other
sheet, or check the checkbox to create a copy at any
Hope that helps.
When using JAWS or Narrator in Excel, once you
have opened a file, you can press f6 to see the
name of the current sheet, to see other sheets in
the file , rename it or select another sheet. When
using NVDA, pressing f6 does nothing.
Is there another way to get to the sheet list in
I use Office 365 and NVDA 2020.4.
