Thanks for all the great tips.  The shift+ctl+B does list the starting cell
and its contents in the JAWS virtual viewer, a very nice touch.


Secondly, I was able to use the "Zoom" button and the "Ins+Pagedown" keys to
gain information regarding the page to be printed and the total number of
pages in the document.


One thing I have not been able to accomplish thus far is to use the JAWS
cursor to actually read the print preview display of the spreadsheet as I
did in Excel 2003.  It is not needed most of the time, but sometimes it
enables me to determine exactly how some things line up and appear relative
to each other on the actual print preview display.


Thanks.  Ron

Don't have 2010 but note that in 2007 in the print preview pressing
insert+numpad 3 will read "Preview: Page 1 of x zoom in".

Sorry I don't know about Excel 2010. Have you made sure that the window is

While I used Excel 2003, I was always able to have full access with the JAWS
cursor to the Print Preview display and could look at the status line on the
bottom to see which page I was displaying and the total number of pages (eg
2 of 4).

Now that I am using Excel 2010, I cannot access any of the print preview
display or the page numbers. I was told by a sighted individual that the
print preview display is in a separate window, usually at the right, but I
have not been able to navigate there at all.

Has anyone had better luck accessing the Print Preview display under Excel
in MicroSoft Office 2010?
