E-508: Row Number Merged With Adjacent Cell Contents when Read Through Jaws (Doc ID 2022021.1)

With Accessibility mode turned on, looking at tables, column 1 is Row number.
The problem is, screen readers such as JAWS and NVDA are reading the contents of column 1 and column 2 as one string.
For example, in a Requisition on Row 1 Line 1, instead of reading "Row one" the screen reader says "Row one one". For Req Line 2 it reads "Row two two". This is an improvement. It used to read "Row eleven" on Row 1 Line 1 and "Row twenty-two" on Row 2 Line 2.
Another example on Requisition Lines, the screen reader gives conflicting information when it states the field's row number. Example: Req Line 1 Item field: screen reader says "row two column four item colon row one one edit blank". Is Req Line 1 on Row 1 or Row 2? The screen reader says both. This is more clear in my attached screen print, and even more clear if you run JAWS on a few tables with accessibility mode turned on.
