Carol,
Try bringing up a list of links in MS Word with JAWS Key+F7, just as you would in a browser, and press Enter on the link. That worked for me when I put a link in Word to a spreadsheet on my computer.

Thank you both for your replies but sorry I should have explained it better. I do have the spreadsheet linked within Word and when I click on it, it opens in Excel, so it is working. But the problem is I can't find the keyboard equivalent to allow me to click on the spreadsheet. When I arrow down to it Jaws reads it. But as its an embedded linked object its not possible to navigate it as you would a table which is fine this is as I would expect but I don't know how to get it to open in Excel using JAWS. I can only open it by clicking on it with the mouse.

any ideas wellcome,

Thank you,
Carol

Carol,
I believe that you have to link 'the two files.  It may be that you
have to
do this at the time you copy the excel spreadsheet into Word.  Not sure
Hope
this helps..
Doug'
