Table with hidden first column

I have a table where visually I want to display a first column with row
numbers. At the same time, I want to hide that column from screen readers.
I don’t even want screen readers to announce it in its count of the number
of columns. Is there a method that will work for JAWS, NVDA, and VoiceOver?

JAWS likes aria-hidden=“true” but not other screen readers.
