Alert message

Spring 2019

1194.22(g): Row and column headers shall be identified for data tables.

1194.22(h): Markup shall be used to associate data cells and header cells for data tables that have two or more logical levels of row or column headers.

  • The issue: Data tables are designed for viewing; column and row headers can be discerned while reading data.

  • Accommodation is needed so that screen readers will announce headings as the user navigates a table.

  • Use positioning -first row and first column, TH cells, scope and/or headers/id.
