iPhone 5S On The Web: Getting VoiceOver to Read Table Header Cells Along With Table Data Cells

iOS & iPadOS

I'm a new IOS user, and I'm used to screen readers on a PC, and that's what prompted this question. On the web, when you navigate across table cells, the screen reader also reads table header cells. Assuming that you are looking at a properly coded web table, how do you get VoiceOver to read the table header cells along with the table data cells?

Hi Jim,

I avoid browsing currently in IOS8, but I think the tables issue with Voiceover not reading correctly is a bug. We can only expect some kind of a fix at some stage.
Best wishes,
