having such if blocks in all tests regarding horizontal navigation feels like the parametrization isn't quite complete, IMO: the test method shouldn't need to worry, instead just call semantic horizontal navigation methods.

A simple change would be to extract that differentiation into a dedicated method, like f.i. forward/backward, test would get simpler (and make it easier to add those that are missing :)

    public void testForwardFocus() {
        sm.select(0, col0);
        // current
        //if (orientation == NodeOrientation.LEFT_TO_RIGHT) {
        //    keyboard.doRightArrowPress(KeyModifier.getShortcutKey());
        //} else {
        //    keyboard.doLeftArrowPress(KeyModifier.getShortcutKey());
        // extracted
        assertTrue("selected cell must still be selected", sm.isSelected(0, col0));
        assertFalse("next cell must not be selected", sm.isSelected(0, col1));
        TablePosition focusedCell = fm.getFocusedCell();
        assertEquals("focused cell must moved to next", col1, focusedCell.getTableColumn());
     * Orientation-aware horizontal navigation with arrow keys.
     * @param modifiers the modifiers to use on keyboard
    protected void forward(KeyModifier... modifiers) {
        if (orientation == NodeOrientation.LEFT_TO_RIGHT) {
        } else {
