Accessibility Information & Tips

  • Use the <caption> element with data (non-layout) tables to identify the table. Use the "summary" attribute for the <table> element to provide an overview of the purpose of the table or to explain how to navigate the table. The caption and summary text should not duplicate each other. Visit https://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG20-TECHS/H39 for more information.
