By naming cells and data ranges, you can make your formulas much easier to understand in Excel 2016 (for example, cells that contain a pay rate could be named, “PayRate”). You can define a name for a cell range, function, constant, or table. Screen readers will announce the name of the cell or data range which makes the information easier to understand
Note: This topic assumes that JAWS users have turned off the Virtual Ribbon Menu feature.
