Richard,

When in Microsoft Word press insert+V for the JAWS Quick Settings dialog.

Down arrow to Tables and you should find three options. You can disable any of these, including table detection.

Is there a way to turn off Jaws' announcements of tables when reading documents?
I'm helping an elderly friend who receives a lot of interesting articles that have been copied from a web site, then saved in Word.
When reading, Jaws announces the Table with so many rows and columns.
Is it possible to turn that off so it just reads the text?
Thanks,
Richard
