Accessibility Ambassadors: Creating Accessible Tables on the Web

May 28, 2021

One of the most talked-about aspects of digital accessibility is tables. Are they accessible? Should they be used? How do you do them right? Tables have been part of websites since the early days of the web, yet there is still a lot of confusion about when and how to use them.

This month the Ambassadors welcome back Kim Doberstein, formerly of OIT and now principal front end developer at Red Hat.

In this session, Kim will discuss how to implement tables for increased accessibility and usability. The session will have something for content providers, user interface designers, and developers.

Accessibility Ambassadors: Creating accessible tables on the web
Thursday, June 24, noon-1 p.m.

Registration for this session is required. Let us know if you are attending. Any accommodation requests should be made before June 10.
