When i'm reading tables by cell, I'd like to tab from cell to cell. It would be great if NVDA could read the cell content. Microsoft Word selects the cell automaticly, so perhaps someone could ad a script that starts the ReportCurrentSelection script if I tabbing from cell to cell.

Maybe you could improove reading tables in Microsoft Word similar to Mozilla Firefox.

Tabbing in microsoft word tables helps the user to fill information or forms if needed in a faster way and it is already implemented by microsoft so we only need that NVDA speaks to us the content that exists in the selected cell.

yes moving among cells by tab is easier than moving by alt +ctrl+ arrow keys..
nvda speaks the cell content if we press insert+tab.
but it will be so heavy if i press shift plus tab. this means i will press shift plus tab then press insert plus tab again to know where iam.
and the blind person may press extra tab without being warned that he/she will add an extra row .
