Re: FW: [win10] Labeling tables with Nvda

Hi all.  I’ve just tested the below steps with both JAWS and NVDA.  I did this in MS Word 2013. 

 

1.1       Use the Bookmark Feature to Have Row and Column Headers Read for JAWS Users

 

You can make Microsoft Word table headers read automatically for JAWS and MAGic keyboard users by adding bookmarks to the table with certain phrases. This is an accessibility and usability feature of JAWS that uses the bookmark feature of Word. 

 

Open a table practice document to create row and column headers using the Bookmark feature in Microsoft Word.

 

1.2       To insert a Table in an MS Word document do the following:

 

1.     Place your Curser where you want the Table to appear. 

2.     Open the Insert Menu and Tab to Table and press Enter. 

3.     Using your Arrow keys move down and to the right to select the number of rows and columns for your Table, then press Enter to complete the task. 

 

2          Tables with both Row and Column Headers:

 

To make row and column headers in tables accessible to users of JAWS 6.0 or later, start Microsoft Word and open the document containing the table. 

 

2.1       If the table has both row and column headers:

 

list of 3 items

1. Place the insertion point in a cell where the row and column containing the headers meet.

2. Open the Insert menu (ALT+N) and choose Bookmark (K).

3. Type "Title" without the quotes and press ENTER.

list end

 

2.2       Tables with only Row Headers

1. Place the insertion point in any cell within the column containing the headers.

2. Open the Insert menu (ALT+N) and choose Bookmark (K).

3. Type "RowTitle" without the quotes and press ENTER.

 

2.3       Tables with only Column Headers

1. Place the insertion point in any cell within the row containing the headers.

2. Open the Insert menu (ALT+N) and choose Bookmark (K).

3. Type "ColumnTitle" without the quotes and press ENTER.

 

2.3.1     TIP: DO NOT PLACE A BOOKMARK IN EACH CELL THAT CONTAINS A HEADER. JAWS RECOGNIZES ALL CELLS IN THE MARKED ROW AND/OR COLUMN AS A HEADER. 

 

3          Documents with Multiple Tables

 

Microsoft Word does not allow two bookmarks to use the same name. If there is more than one table in your document, add a number or descriptive word to

the end of the bookmark text used to indicate headers. For example:

 

Title_1

RowTitle_Revenue

ColumnTitle_Expenses

Hey all

I hope you all are doing well.

 

Does anyone know how to label columns in tables so that NVDA reads the title of the cell? If that makes any since.

Thanks.

 

 

Thank you
