Well, not much else to say, but in many instances, there is little one can remember the relative locations in tables with, other than the numbers.
Its always been my dream to have a kind of dual focus toggle so I can actually be sure which box I'm ticking in table based forms etc.

This should be covered by #361, although that only works in Mozilla applications for now. If that is acceptable, we should close this as a duplicate. Otherwise, this ticket should be morphed to cover table headers in IE.

OK, obviously not had time to eveluate the effects in FF as yet, but yes, I kept it unspecific on browser as I wanted it in the two main ones. I'll add something to the short description.
I'm not sure if its a duplicate, I do try to search for common words etc before I raise one, but sometimes the words might be wrong!
Changed title from "Feature request. Be able to read column heading without moving current focus in large tables" to "Feature request. In IE/Firefox, Be able to read column heading without moving current focus in large tables"

Initial implementation in eb5888f. Much code borrowed from adobeAcrobat backend.
Remaining problems: breakage if table is mutated. Guessing could be better when no scope is provided.
Milestone changed from None to 2013.1

Table mutation breakage now fixed in b4e60a3.
Ignoring the scope issue for this ticket. If there are any basic tables found that suggest a better handling of undefined scope, a new ticket should be opened.

This needs a What's New entry.

[NVDA] #2824: Incorrect column headers in IE 8 on ticket system for nvda was raised a couple of days ago. If you go to the top of a ticket and come down the table you encounter first you can see what I am getting at in the ticket, and Firefox seems to cope properly.
