You can now set column headers using NVDA+shift+c, but this is specific to screen readers. Word allows you to set the top row as a header row using the "Repeat as header row at the top of each page" check box on the Row tab of the Table Properties dialog. This is visible visually and is also tagged in exported PDF documents. NVDA should support this too.

Reading no longer breaks in MS Word tables where rows have been merged. Re #4510

When rows are merged it is impossible to access individual rows from the MS Word rows collection object. So therefore handle this when trying to search for the header row.
