Selecting Cells in Table

Bhavya shah
 

Dear all,

The current scenario is that I am on a standard table on a webpage
displayed by Firefox. I am seeking to select multiple cells of a
specific column.
1 Shift+Ctrl+Alt+arrow keys don't produce any effect.
* Shift +Ctrl+arrow keys keep selecting the subsequent cell, i.e. the
next cell in the same row as opposed to the next cell in the column.
I would appreciate any methods or tricks to accomplish what I am trying to do.

Thanks.

Hi Bhavya,

Did this used to work?  I must admit I couldn't remember - I just tried in Word (365) and the current version of Firefox with both NVDA 2019.3.1 and 2019.2.1 and while I can navigate tables with control+alt+arrows, I can't add shift to select cells.  You could create an issue for this.
