The company I work for develops survey systems for government clients. 
We've got loads of complex data table issues, as most of the survey forms 
are laid out in tabular format.

I'm working with one of our designers to create a sample data table/form 
that our developers can use as a model for retrofitting their systems. 
We're using techniques for associating row/column header and cell 
information recommended in the WCAG techniques document and the HTML 4.01 
spec, but JAWS 3.7 won't read the row and column headers (I've tried 
reformatting the table and ALT+CTRL+num 5). I've also tested the sample 
with HPR 3, which reads input titles in the table cells but not the header 
information itself.

If someone could take a look and tell us what we're missing, I'd really 
appreciate it:

Thank you,
Denise Koschmann
