How do you read ALT text in a table?

Kenny Dog <hurrikennyandopo@...>

Hi guys

I am putting together a basic tutorial on how to use Microsoft word.

I can insert a table etc but after I enter in the alt text for the table
when I come across it in the document it does not report the ALT text
that I have put in. When I go to check again the table properties the
ALT text is there along with the description. But when i go back to the
document it is not read out. Is there already a ticket for this? or is
there a new key stroke i do not know about.

I can give steps to recreate the problem if it has not been done
already. If a ticket has not be done and can be created, could some one
else do it i do not like the way it is now.

Any help would be great. By the way I am using microsoft word 2010 and
nvda 1016.2.1 and windows 10 .
