The following examples illustrate how No Vision or Low Vision users access table fields.
- Selection (multi, single, and disjoint)—To select multiple columns, use the "select" link. The first column selected is the primary selection. To move from cell to cell in a row, use the JAWS Ctrl+Alt+Down Arrow command. To go to a specific cell, press CTRL+J. You can also tab because tabbing goes to each link. You must select each row. There is no shortcut key to make multiple selections with one keystroke. Use the JAWS HTML table commands to help users access links for faster selection.
- Restarting a selection after selections have been made—To remove all selections and make the row the primary selection, use the "single click" active link.
- Clearing or selecting all in a table field—To access the Select All and DeSelect All links, go to the Select column. Note: If the table is no select, these links are not available. If the table is single select, Select All is not available.
- Hearing which row is selected—Go to a cell in the select column and read the contents.
- Contiguous selection—No equivalent exists for quickly selecting contiguous rows. You must go to each row and select it.
