The viewers are a little difficult to find - here's how to find them.
 
Go to: http://www.microsoft.com/office/downloads/default.htm
<http://www.microsoft.com/office/downloads/default.htm> , which is the
downloads site for Microsoft Office. Click on the icon for the software you
want (Word, Excel, and so on).
 
That will take you to the download center, which loads a form, with the
product you last clicked on selected in the form. De-select the options
"Add-ins" and "Updates", and select "Converters and Viewers".
 
That loads the list of viewers and converters for that title in the Office
Suite.

Subject: [w3c] Accessibility of Excel docs?


Hello All:
 
Thanks for the information on the tables, everyone was most helpful! 
 
Now, I'm wondering about Excel spreadsheets.  I've been told that
downloadable reader exists for Excel, but I cannot find it.  Does one exist?
Is it accessible? Other than an HTML equivalent, is there another method of
making these documents accessible?
 
Thanks.
