Re: How do you read ALT in a table?

Excellent. I seem to have had in mind that the table alt text was a new thing. If you've got it in Office 2010 it must just be that I hadn't noticed it earlier.

Thanks for that.I was guessing that the long description shortcut may be used, but not with the current version of NVDA.
I do have a master copy here from saturday i will give it a whirl with that, then put in the shortcut for it into the tutorial.
I just tryed it and when I now come across the table it will speak the table name for example school time table and when I do the long description with NVDA key + D it will speak out what I had put in there as in the description.
I usually look up to see what has been done in the master snapshot and have a bit of a play to see what to do, then write on how to use certain parts of it that may get used.
The stuff I am writing up is more the basic of using power point, excel and word with the copy of office I am using.
It should work on other versions if supported.

What we've done is read the alt "title" as you move onto the table, and the description is used as Long description (press NVDA+D in browse mode).
