Hi again,

Got it to work. Gary's reply led me to try various JAWS keys and I discovered 
that Jaws sees these as graphic so Ins + Z to switch on accelerator keys the G 
to cycle through graphics. Once at spreadsheet Jaws tells you that it's an 
embedded spreadsheet. To select its simply Shift + right arrow and right click 
gives you the context menu which inculdes an option "linked worksheet object" 
with sub-option "open link".

Quickest route is simply on arrow down to spreadsheet, select it by shift + 
right arrow then bring up context menu by right-click button (or by shift + 
f10) and then from context menu choose "linked worksheet object" with 
sub-option "open link".

That's great.

Thanks
Carol

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.
