It will be very useful and helpful to add shortcut keys that can enable NVDA to read the title/header of the column and the row. For example, the user may be in the cell number c100 and he needs to remember the column title/header of the column c, it is not practical or fast enough for the user to keep going up and down to know the header specially if there is a kind of follow-up on something with somebody on the phone or the user is dealing with a sheet full of data.

in response to ticket#1519 that reporting the column/row title in excel
I have written an excel.py such that enable nvda having the hot keys to
report top 5 rows/left 5 columns of cells in excel. for example in cell
number G100 press alt+1 to report A100, press alt+2 to report B100, ...,
and alt+ctrl+1 to report G1, alt+ctrl+2 to report G2, ... etc.
Also i add a toggle key nvda+0 to enable nvda reporting excel cell
content on/off just for your Convenience.

In my opnion, no.
First, instead of NVDA sends the mssage:
"Cannot set headers. Please enable reporting of table headers in Document Formatting Settings"
why not set that automatically for the user?
2 - Allow the "set haders details" to be saved in NVDA for that specific file.
