If it's a simple spreadsheet, you can copy it and paste it into a Word
table. Not sure how well that would work with JAWS for this user, but you
can also go from Word to HTML or even out to Braille with Duxbury.

Good luck!

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??
