[Athen] question re Excel and accessible html

Hi Norm, I guess I don't understand what the problem is. Excel gives you two
choices - a single file web page and a standard htm/html page. I tried
both, and both saved as perfectly respectable web tables. Maybe the problem
is Jaws? These web pages read just fine with Window-Eyes. I have Jaws but
don't know how to navigate web tables with Jaws. If somebody will tell me
how, I'll try it.

Subject: [Athen] question re Excel and accessible html

I am trying to find a way that a faculty member not knowing a html authoring
tool can save a spreadsheet in an html format a screen reader can use. Just
saving as html JAWS seems to treat it as if it were just one long column.

I tried to paste it into Dreamweaver to see if it would do something down
and dirty. I got the html but no better than saving to html from excel

Any ideas??
