Lesson 14. Styling a Data Table > Adding Accessibility Features to a Data Table

Adding Accessibility Features to a Data Table

There are a range of features that can be added to data tables to make them more accessible.

The summary attribute shown in Listing 14.2 should be used on complex data tables because it provides a clear description of what the table presents. It does not display on screens of current (standards-compliant) web browsers, but it can display on other web-browsing devices such as handhelds, cell phones, and so forth. The summary attribute is used as an orientation for people who use nonvisual devices.
