[techs] Table Summary Tests (111, 112, 113, 114, 203): 

In response to "but with JAWS the user can jump directly to any table on
the page by..." I must second Joe's response. There are many wonderful
things JAWS can do to work around content that is inaccessible. None of
that should affect the working group techniques. Otherwise, you are
targeting just JAWS and ignoring a whole world of users that rely on
standard techniques for accessibility. Don't create something based on
how one vendor's solution works.
