Robert would know, he is a screenreader user. Both of these tables seem fine, but I think there would eventually be some confusion with the first table, since table headers seem to all have the same name.

Also, bulleted or numbered lists are no problem in a table.

Subject: [Athen] Table header and list

Hi everyone,

I have two questions I would like to ask the community.

First question:
Would having a table with the same header across majority of columns be an accessibility issue? Please see example table below.

BIO 100
BIO 300
Math 101
Math 250
BIO 101- BIO 102
BIO 200

Math 150

Or should the table be created in this manner following a heading explaining what the table is? Please keep in mind this will be created in a word document.


*BIO 100

*BIO 300

*Math 101

*Math 250

*BIO 101 - BIO 102

*BIO 200

*Math 100

*Math 150

Second question:
Would using a list in a table cell cause any issue?

Thank you in advance for your thoughts and inputs.
