Using tables in documents with VoiceOver

Forum
macOS & Mac Apps

Hi,
I'm having a huge problem when it comes to managing tables within word documents on my Mac. I have to complete a document, which is entirely table based, however, VoiceOver simply cannot manage tables. I've tried 3 different word processors, Pages, Microsoft Office Word, and even LibreOffice. None were able to manage tables, LibreOffice didn't even manage to deal with VoiceOver, and completely crashed my Mac.
Does anyone know of an app that is capable of managing tables within documents?
Any help would be great,
Hubert.

I'm not sure exactly what kind of tables you're looking at, but have you tried numbers? It's Apple's Application for spreadsheets and things but it seems to handle tables better than pages in my experience

I've been sent a word document application form, and all the questions are in multiple tables, and the answers also have to be entered into the table.

Have you tried to interact with the table then try to navigate it?

Yes, I have tried interacting with the table, mostly, the navigation of the table is fine, however, I sometimes for some reason some how, manage to add extra rows or columns to a table, which I didn't want to add. However, the problem I seem to have, is sometimes some tables VoiceOver seems to miss out, and the text in-between tables, is sometimes missed out by VoiceOver.
