Hi,
If this is possible, it would be great. If someone is reading an MS Word document, as we can with Excel, put the cursor in the top left corner of the current table and press a key to mark either the top row or the left column to read as though it were a row or column header. This would only work effectively in uniform tables: those whose rows have the same number of columns. If a document has multiple tables, we'd have to do this for each table, because currently we have no way to store information about each document and save the information we need to avoid having to re-create the information.

I believe you can specify that a table should have a header row and/or column in Microsoft Word. If I'm correct and we can detect this, there shouldn't be a need to explicitly define this with NVDA.

Hi, Unfortunately, Word does not pass table row header info to screen readers, and what you say doesn't cover header columns.
