I'm having poor results with what I would think should be a simple enough task in creating an accessible table in Word2016. I'm wondering if someone who is a Word expert would contact me directly so I don't clutter up the list. Right now I cannot get the column headings to be read unless I go in to the JAWS settings and manually turn on the table markup. Then play with the row/column settings.

I'll reply publicly because the answer is easy. You only can mark the the
top row as headings in that version. You can't mark row headings. To mark
headings, you have to use the repeat header rows options under the table
layout tab.
