Re: supressing announcement of row and column in a web table

If you mean by recognition, that using the letter t won’t work, it has nothing to do with that.  All such settings are for spoken announcements and all movement commands wwork as they did before.  For example, I can turn off if I turn off heading announcements and all movement by heading commands still work.

Thanks. I saw that item but thought it would disable the recognition of
tables, and I didn't want that, as I need to find the table and then
navigate my chosen column. Guess I should have just tried it first
rather than assuming.
