Melissa,

Freedom Scientific has a page on navigating to and through tables with JAWS and MAGic. While it's not the same as what people actually do, it does tell you what they tell users to do.

Subject: [WebAIM] Reading tables in JAWS

Hi all,

I'm trying to better understand how JAWS users read tables. I have my own expectations of what I think JAWS should do, however, these are based on how I view the Web as a sighted user. Any insight as to how actual users of JAWS software scan and read tables is greatly appreciated, as are any links to additional information. (Note that I have reviewed the WebAIM information, WCAG 2.0, various YouTube videos, and a few other random sites.)

Thank you in advance,

Melissa
