Hi Jean. I agree with you but I’ve just had a very nice little breakthrough. I was struggling to edit text in eBay item descriptions using both Internet Explorer and Firefox and I thought I’d just try Chrome not expecting anything great. I was pleasantly surprised to find that it actually worked beautifully.
I wish I could just use 1 browser for everything but it’s nice to know that I can find a solution even if I do have to switch browsers occasionally. Better than nothing. )

Subject: Re: [nvda] Cannot Read Table Cells in a particular website using Chrome
Someone suggested turning on notification of tables. I assume the person was referring to the setting in document presentation. I'm saying that, as far as I know, that setting has nothing to do with how tables are read when you are in a table. all commands should work no matter how that setting Is set. My understanding and experience is that that setting controls whether tables are announced when you enter them but it has nothing to do with how tables are read. That's how other settings work. I have heading announcements off but I can move to all headings using the movement commands for this purpose. as far as I know, all such commands only control whether NVDA announces structures and have no effect on whether you can work with them.
Your problemn is probably one more lack of accessibility in Chrome. Chrome has come a long way but it is still not fully accessible and after all these years, there really is no excuse.

Hi. Thanks for the suggestion. I will try that. Jean, I'm not entirely sure what you're asking. I know when I get to a table because NVDA tells me, it just will not move around the cells using the appropriate keystrokes.
