Re: Navigating tables in Chrome

If a table reads as you describe it is simply not properly designed/marked up. I have many websites where arrowing reads one cell of a table at a time, but if whoever designed the website treats one entire row as one cell then there isn’t anything that can be done about it except to try and contact the website administrator and ask if this can be fixed. It’s sort of like having headings and other design elements, if a website is designed without them it is not the fault of any screenreader.

Have you tried using the JAWS table navigation commands.  Insert plus space followed by the letter T for table.  You have to be in the table before you use the keystroke.  Then you can use the up and down arrow keys to navigate by row, and left and right arrow keys to move through the different columns.

Any ideas on how to better navigate items in tables on Chrome web sites.

Currently, arrowing up or down moves through each item in a row until the end of a row then goes to the next row.  If the table is large, this can take a good bit of time.

Tried using the control + windows key + j command to jump to the row and column coordinates, but does not seem to work in these tables.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
