Incorrect Keystroke in Excel Training


Rob
 

In section 3.7
"Adding Headers"
an incorrect keystroke is given.
The text states:

To set the column containing row headers, move to the first cell that contains a row heading. Next, press NVDA+control+r. In the plant example, column A contains the name of the plant in each row. Setting this as the row headers means NVDA reads the name of each plant while navigating down the rows.

This keystroke is incorrect. the paragraph should read:

To set the column containing row headers, move to the first cell that contains a row heading. Next, press NVDA+shift+r. In the plant example, column A contains the name of the plant in each row. Setting this as the row headers means NVDA reads the name of each plant while navigating down the rows.

The text should be corrected, or should have an erata page at leats, with this information.

Who put this training out? That's not very good if the mistake wasn't found
by the trainer.

I agree that it's certainly preferable and desirable that mistakes never find their way into product manuals or tutorials and that is the goal of anybody who writes documentation. However, it's inevitable that errors do creep in from time to time. If we can let NV Access know they can certainly correct it and update the manual quickly. Compare that to the way we had to do things prior to electronic documentation when sheets were printed containing errors and what the corrections should be.

Hi Rob,

Thanks so much for pointing this out!  It's true that ideally any errors would be picked up prior to release, however at least with electronic material, making a correction like this is relatively easy to do.  I have fixed the master copy here and will repackage it so that as of shortly, anyone who downloads the material (either those who purchase it in the future, or those who have already purchased it who download it from now) will have the updated version.

Thank you again for picking up the error, and indeed, if you do come across anything else that doesn't look right, please do let me know!

Kind regards

Quentin.
