Yes, but please keep in mind that not all of us
have the same screen reader nor even the latest version of the same screen reader.
Screen reader and screen reader version independence is at least as important as browser and browser version independence.
If universal design is indeed going to be universal, this must be kept in mind.

I appreciate the time that you (and others) took to detail the use of the
screen reader within tables. Apparently there is more to today's screen
readers than I had initially supposed. Which is VERY good news, by the way.
