JAWS Power Tip: How To Use Selection Mode On A Web Page To Select A Table

Released: 8/10/2023

Share to Facebook

JAWS for Windows Tips.

You can use F8 on a web page to select elements like entire tables.

This enables you to quickly select and copy information.

To Do This:

Press the navigation quick key T to navigate to the table on a web page.

JAWS announces the number of rows and columns along with column and row header information. Focus is in the first cell of the table.

To Select The Table:

1.) Move out of the table by pressing UP ARROW. JAWS reads, "table with 2 columns and 6 rows." This text is not visible on the screen, but JAWS gives it to you as informational content.

2.) Press F8 to select the table.

3.) Press CTRL+C to copy the table and its formatting, then paste it into a document. The table formatting and styles are maintained when copying and pasting with JAWS in the Chrome or Edge browsers, however the styles may need to be manually adjusted once they are brought into Word.

The Power of JAWS!
