Subject: [WebAIM] Role= presentation for layout table

Have a layout which has role= presentation. But when using JAWS2019 with IE11. It is still being read as table with rows and columns.

But noticed that it is working fine when using NVDA with Firefox or JAWS17 with IE11.

Can anyone tell if that is a know issue with JAWS2019. Also, what robust solution can be implemented which works for all the screen reader users.
