Screen reader content
This article is for people with visual impairments who use a screen reader program with the Office products and is part of the Office Accessibility content set. For more general help, see Microsoft Support home.
Use Excel with your keyboard and a screen reader to give a descriptive title to each table in your worksheet. We have tested it with Narrator, JAWS, and NVDA, but it might work with other screen readers as long as they follow common accessibility standards and techniques. Use short titles to describe the information so that people who cannot see the data can understand what’s in the table.
Add a title to a table
Place the focus anywhere in the table.
Press Alt+J and then press A. You hear: “Properties, Table name, editing."
The focus moves to the Table Name: text field..
Type the table name.
Press Enter. The focus returns to the table.
