If you create the chart as a new sheet (step 4 of the chart wizard),
then when you move to that page the Data menu will have been replaced
with a Chart menu. Some changes can be done from that menu; background
colours can be changed from the Format menu. No configuration changes
need be made to JAWS.

Subject: working with Excel and Jaws

We are trying to make changes to a bar graph we created inside Excel,
but Jaws won't allow us to make any changes.  
I am a sighted helper for a student and I can see that when we turn off
Jaws I can make the changes to the graph, such as background color,
legends, etc.  
How do we configure Jaws so that the student can do this part of the
work herself without sighted help? All she gets from Jaws is a
description of the graph, but no options to make changes.
