How A-Prompt Tester Program Works

Validating The 'TABLE' Element

Before the table can be evaluated for accessibility, the purpose of the table must be known. This dialog is used to ask the user for the table purpose.

The following areas are checked for accessibility in the TABLE element:

  1. Table must have a summary
  2. Data tables must have row or column headers
  3. Use markup to associate data cells and header cells in data tables that have two or more logical levels of row or column headers.
  4. Data tables should have abbreviations for long header names
  5. Layout tables should make sense when linearized
  6. Layout tables should not use structual markup (TH) for visual formatting
