Complicated tables and forms question

Hi all - New to the listserv and I've searched through the archive and
couldn't find my answer.

I have a series of text form fields inside a data table with both column
and row headings. How do you label each field in this case? Someone
suggested I place a 'title' tag on each text input and this seemed the
best solution. But I couldn't get JAWS 3.7 to read the titles (which I
realize this is a 3 year old version of JAWS and this may be the
problem). If most screen readers will sufficiently read the title tag,
then I will go with that.

Simply doing my scope=row and scope=col on my column and row headers is
not giving me sufficient labeling of each field.

Any advice would be GREATLY appreciated!

Lainie
