Associating header and data cells in a complex table using colgroup and rowgroup values

Recommended Posts

Hi,While testing the table (pls see below) in Jaws, noticed that Jaws didn't recognize the Header 2 and the cells related to this header.Do I have to treat this table as a complex table with headers and ids?Before, I was pretty sure that rowgroup and colgroup values should help improve accessibility in this kind of tables. Maybe, it is because different screen reader tools work differently.PLs advice.Thank you!<table><caption>Table's caption</caption><tr> <th scope="col">Header 1</th> <th scope="col">Header 2</th> </tr> <tr> <th scope="rowgroup" colspan="2">Header row 1</th> </tr> <tr> <td>Cell 1-1</td> <td>Cell 1-2</td> </tr> <tr> <th scope="rowgroup" colspan="2">Header row 2</th> </tr> <tr> <td>Cell 2-1</td> <td>Cell 2-2</td> </tr> <tr> <th scope="rowgroup" colspan="2">Header row 3</th> </tr> <tr> <td>Cell 3-1</td> <td>Cell 3-2</td> </tr></table>
