Re: FW: Notes on NVDA and PowerPoint
I usually edit tables in Word or Excel and then get them into Powerpoint. If I must edit them in PowerPoint, I then use word by word navigation with the ctrl+left and right arrow and line by line navigation to move around in the table. The only way I know of is to be familiar with the content of the table so that you know what you are editing. I wish there was a better answer.

Good to hear your experience. I am relieved to find that your experience reflects my own.
I am particularly interested in the detail of navigating tables. As you say, column divisions are not echoed so:
1. How do you know when you are in one column or another?
2. Is there any way of knowing which column your active point is in?
3. What keystrokes are involved apart from those which you have already described?
All the best,

In terms of table navigation and editing:
1. I can read tables in slide show mode.
2. When in object navigation mode, reading of a table or editing a table is difficult because column seperators are not spoken. This used to happen even with Jaws version 16 I think.
3. I am on PowerPoint 2016 and whatever has been discussed so far is applicable to that version.
4. The tab and shift+tab are standard keystrokes. The same applies to f6 and shift+f6.
Has anyone had luck navigating tables in powerpoint? Table navigation does not work for me in powerpoint.
I have to resort to using tab to step through every cell.
