Table across 2-page spread

Hello, all. I have a few very large tables that span the two-page spread. So, the entire row crosses both pages. Works great for print publishing. However, when trying to remediate the PDF, no matter how I do the tags, NVDA will still only read one page at a time. So, it reads half the table on the first page and the second half on the second page... essentially reading only half a row, finishing that page, and then reading the other half of the rows on the second page. I ended up inserting a larger page size to hold the table in its entirety on one page in order for the table to be read properly and accessible online. I have one InDesign file/PDF for the printer and another PDF for online. Is there any way that I can override screenreaders to read the table in its entirety instead of page by page? Thanks!
