Hi all,

I am experimenting with tables accessibility and using the "id" and
"headers" attributes to link row and colum headers to specific cells in a
complex table (more than 1 header row/column).

I have found different resources online explaining me what the result would
be when produced by a screen reader for blind people. I have already tried
some popular screen readers like Jaws, but I have not yet found one online
that actually presents the information in this new format. Various
references say that a "future" screen reader might read it as presented.

Is there already a screen reader available (free trial, download) that
actually presents the information in this 'new way', so I can test if my
code is correct, and "experience the difference" ? Or is this still
something that belongs to science fiction ;-)

Thanks for your help.
