How did you get JAWS to announce the column headers while reading row 2?

If you really got it to do that, then that would solve my frustration.

Hi Paul.  I tried the table using JAWS for Windows 3.5 and found that it
worked pretty well.  I used the Control+Alt+arrows and was able to move
across row 2 with automatic announcement of the column headers from row one.
It was a bit unusual in that each cell of row 2 appeared to contain two
links one after another, but JAWS indicated each of these links separately
and led me to understand that they were bundled together in the cell.

Cheers,
