[access-uk] Re: Excel Drop Down Lists

Hi John.

That works for some drop down boxes integrated into excel sheets but there is another use of drop down lists where there is a small graphical arrow in the cell and JAWS can't recognise this. Placing the JAWS cursor over the graphic with the help of a sighted colleague and then issuing a left mouse click will open the drop down list but otherwise, I haven't found any other way of activating this latter type of drop down.

Regards.

Hi Colin,

Just hold down the alt key and then down arrow. At least that is the key
sequence in JAWS.
