Guidance and tips for creating and maintaining your content

Working with Tables

  • Use tables mainly to display data that fits well into rows and columns.
  • Add table headers to describe the contents of the table columns. (Table Properties>Headers.)
  • Add table caption and summary to provide more information about the table for screen reader to pick it up.
  • Avoid spanned rows as screen readers may not properly parse them.
