Core Skills: Tables
There are two types of tables: layout and data. Layout tables are uses to place data within a document or webpage. There is no represented relationship within the content of the layout table. A data table shows the relationship between two or more items.
Accessible tables are simple, have header rows, and include a table summary. By creating accessible tables, screen reader users are able to read the table contents in a linear fashion.
