Take a look at the following notes to see if they'll help:
From: Brian Lee
For newspaper style columns the keystroke Alt+DownArrow key usually moves
focus to the top of the next column. However, JAWS uses Alt+DownArrow to
read a next sentence. If you use a pass through keystroke followed by
Alt+DownArrow focus will move to the top of the next column. You can use
JAWS key with the number 3 on the alphanumeric row of keys followed by
Alt+DownArrow key if you want to move to the top of the next column. If you
use Alt+UpArrow after using JAWS key with the number 3 focus should move to
the top of the previous column. If you want to read the information in a
different column on the same line you should use the JAWS cursor. Route
JAWS cursor to PC cursor and move a word right or left until you find some
text in a different column. Do a left mouse button click (if using a
desktop press the second key from the left on the top row of the number pad,
if using a laptop keyboard configuration then use the caps lock key with the
number 8 on the alphanumeric row of keys). Put PC cursor back on and focus
should be in the other column on the same row.
It is kind of complicated but I think these steps should work for you.

keystroke used to create text (or newspaper style) columns is:

If I am in the first column, and press, End,
Then the right arrow key, I move to the second column.
Then I press, End, again, and the right arrow key
And I am in the third column.
I can reverse this by pressing, Home,
Then the left arrow key
Seems a bit clumsy, but it helps me get at the information.
Take care. Mike. Dodgers, try again next year!
