Using a Data Table in a Standard Table
When you tab to a data table in a standard table, you can navigate between the data cells using the Tab key. You use the element in the table cell (input field, checkbox, dropdown list, pushbutton etc.) the same way you use it elsewhere on the screen.
For JAWS users: When you tab to a data table, JAWS announces that you are entering a table, tells you how many rows the table has, tells you how many rows are currently displayed, and tells you how to skip the table.
When you tab into the column header row, JAWS announces that you are entering the header row. When you tab to a column header in the row, JAWS announces that it is a column header and tells you the name of the header. When you tab out of the column header row, JAWS announces that you are leaving the header row.
When you tab to a data cell, JAWS announces the cell contents (if any are available), tells you if input help is available (assuming this is an input field and input help is available), and lets you know if the cell is disabled (unavailable).
When you are on a data cell in the data table, you can use the JAWS virtual PC cursor to determine the column header for that data cell. To do so, while in the virtual PC cursor mode, press Alt + Ctrl + NumPad 5 .
When you tab out of the data table entirely, JAWS announces that you are leaving the table.
