Chapter 11. Creating Accessible Tables > Accessibility Issues for Data Tables

Accessibility Issues for Data Tables

Data tables also present accessibility challenges, and that’s what we’ll focus on in the rest of this chapter.

We consider data tables to be one of the most useful elements in a Web developer’s tool kit, even though they were, at one time, the source of many common barriers encountered by Internet users with disabilities. Recent versions of HTML (especially HTML 4.0) have introduced elements and attributes that make basic table structure more accessible and therefore more versatile and useful for all users. In this chapter, we quickly review table markup and then examine accessibility features. We also refer to the bus schedule problems we experienced in Chapter 5. After reading this chapter, you should be able to solve those problems and create data tables that work for a great many more users.
