Hi Vinod,

One of the biggest issues in Excel occurs when text is spread over more than
one cell. You can get around it by merging cells but that is not necessary
or desirable in several cases. The way to check for this overlapping text is
to arrow from cell to cell. If you hear text of the previous cell when you
arrow to the next cell, you could have an overlapping text issue.

Other listers have already explained how to get around this. In Jaws version
9, there are options that automatically indicate if the text in a cell has
overshot the cell's capacity.

Other than that, ensure that you give accurate column headings, maintain
font and color consistancy and ensure that your work sheets are correctly
labeled. By default, Excel inserts 3 sheets in every new workbook. You can
change this number to be whatever you want. Please delete blank sheets from
workbooks. This will help make things clearer to readers.

Do let me know if you have any specific questions.
