Re: Excel Column and Row Headings Read with Strange Voice

this was a new feature in JAWS 6.1.  Here is the related information from 
JAWS help.
New Voice for Table Headers

In Microsoft Word and Excel, JAWS now reads row and column headers for 
tables in a different voice. To change this voice, open the Set Options menu 
in Configuration
Manager and choose
Voice Aliases.
Select "HeaderVoice" and choose the Modify button.

Could it be the Speech and Sounds Manager and or Voice Aliases in Jaws
configuration manager for XL?
