i have updated it again to add a case of vertical reading order table 
with th only

and here the result for Jaws 8.0 and Firevox

for Jaws 8.0 with win XP and IE7 :
- when non empty summary or caption or th is present it make it switch 
to table mode.
- caption and summary is read by default
- it's doesn't gives the cell association by default in any case, it 
give it when you ask to read the current cell information with ctrl alt 5
- all the case work the same (even with th only) except the juicystudio 
example where the cell association is good only in the case of use of 

for Firevox with win XP and firefox :
- when there is no th it's say that the table can be a layout table when 
you ask more information about the table.
- caption and summary is read by default and when no summary is present 
it say it clearly by default
- table with vertical reading order only make good association between 
cell and th even without any attribute and it say it directly with no 
need to ask for more information about the current cell
- cell in table with vertical reading order need a specific query for 
more information about the current cell to have the cell association given.
- cell with both reading order : it gives the vertical association by 
default and both with the query for more information
- complex table and juicy studio example go totally wrong in every case 
and the wrong is the same in every case, in every case it gives the top 
and left th value with the query for more information and the top th 
value by default

i will ask jaws 6 and maybe 4 to some friend of mine
