      Description

      JDK-8267388 implements accessibility of a Table in new a11y protocol, however it does not completely address the problem of cell navigation.

      Cells in a table are navigated via Tab/Shift+Tab. However, each time a particular cell is navigated VoiceOver announces the whole row. Yet it's possible to edit a cell via Space in which case VoiceOver announces the cell's content.

      It's suggested to investigate if the navigation problem can be resolved via implementing a Table a11y peer as NSAccessibilityGrid.
