jaws supports it with ie 5.5 and above at least.  I do not remember when
jaws began supporting it but I know it is at least with version 4.5

WAICAG Checkpoints 5.5:
"Provide summaries for tables. [Priority 3]
For example, in HTML, use the 'summary' attribute of the TABLE element."

I am using the SUMMARY attribute, but I do not know of any user agents
supporting it...?
