Re: help with complex table

I cannot reproduce your experience. In NVDA 2017.3 and FF 55, your column/row headers are reading as intended. Keep in mind that NVDA will only announce the column or row header once after you enter a new column or row using the table navigation shortcuts (Control + Alt + Arrow keys). The idea is that once I'm in a column, I won't need to hear the header more than once because I already know which column I am in.

If you still feel like it doesn't work to your liking, then try the separate table or the headers/id approach.

Could anyone test the latest rendition of my complex table using Jaws? I can't get it to announce according to my expectations when using NVDA with either IE, Firefox, or Chrome. This may be user error?
