Although my understanding is that one can set a given column and row as a header that Voiceover will announce in Numbers, this doesn't seem to be possible in Excel 2016. Has anyone had success with this? A spreadsheet is useless unless one knows which row and column one is in by its label.
In Excel, vo+R and +C don't work well: the row number is announced, but column just dings at me.
There's a Microsoft document about how to make Excel spreadsheets accessible for screen readers, and this document says to create a table out of a range of cells, making sure the first row are marked as headers. Tried it, and not only is this very confusing, it didn't work. The Table tab on the ribbon also seems not to behave as I'd expect.
I'm pretty new to Voiceover on the Mac, so tell me if I'm missing something. Anybody think this would be scriptable, so that the user could set, say, row one and column 3 as the headers to either read on demand or else announce on movement?
I can see this being an issue where Microsoft could blame Apple for not having the functionality that Jaws and NVDA do, while Apple could just as easily blame Microsoft for not disclosing standard header information to the OS the way Numbers does; either way, nothing would get done.
Again, I hope I'm just missing it. Thanks in advance.
