I am trying to make a document on Tax calculation accessible to a JAWS user. 
The Word document  has 10 worked examples the text of which is written in Word 
and the workings are included in Word but have been created in Excel and 
embedded within the Word document. JAWS is reading the embedded tables but the 
user has no control over the reading. I want the user to be able to click on 
the embedded spreadsheet so that it opens in Excel.

Does anyone know how to do this. I have checked the JAWS help file and googled 
with no luck.
