Re: Reading parts of the cursor's line

For malformed HTML tables you can use my BrowserNav add-on to navigate up and down within current column - e.g. it allows you to find vertically aligned blocks of text that are not properly marked as HTML table.

I knew about the feature in JAWS but I never understood what it would be used for.  Where would it be used?
 
Also, NVDA needs a way, I only saw this ability in the old ASAP DOS screen-reader, to define a column so you can move with the up and down arrow keys or use read to end and only have a certain column of the screen read.  Let's say you have a document with three columns and you want to arrow through one column from top to bottom.  This can't be done now.  It would be useful in some documents and it would be useful on some web sites where tables are laid out visually to look like tables but have no formatting to tell a screen-reader that a table exists.

Then you want my addon.
It's not on the addon site, but should do what you want.
