table looks fine.
you set these three parameters in Document configuration in
the excel profile?:
- Open an Excel worksheet
to open the Excel profile;
- Press NVDA+Control+d
for Document settings;
- Check all of these
- Press control+shift +r
to set row headings.
those are all set, you should hear the row headings as
Thanks, everybody! I have a table like so:
If I go to A1 and hit NVDA-shift-c to set column headers, and
then arrow down to A2, all is well, I hear Jalla Jalla, which
is a track title, followed by A2. However, when I arrow right
to B2, I hear Frigg B2. It is my understanding now, and thanks
for the great explanation, that I *should* hear Frigg B2
I generated my table by making a CSV file from MP3Tag and
then importing that file into Excel, and then saving the
resulting worksheet, or workbook, or whatever it is. Could
that be the problem? To check I hit ctrl-n to make a new
thingy and did:
B1: more stuff
C1: still more stuff
Arrowing down and then right just gave me 4 B2, rather than 4
B2 more stuff, which is what I'd expect from the explanation.

One of the things that many have trouble wrapping their
heads around, and I include myself, is that column headings
reside in a ROW, and row headings reside in a COLUMN. And,
of course, depending on the format of the chart in question
it may have only column headings (in one row) or row
headings (in one column) but not both.
Cearbhall's example makes a perfectly wonderful illustration
of exactly why that is, and also is a marvelous explanation
of why what gets announced when it does depending on whether
you are moving across (which will make column headings
announced) versus down (which will get row headings
My thanks for distilling this so very well.
