1.3.1 Information and Relationships

TABLE 1
  • HR: Concern over complexity of wording of TABLE 1
  • CD: You need to have one or the other, it is a complicated rule
  • JG: We are using the similar wording as in FAE but including the scope option
  • Rule is OK

TABLE 2T
  • JG: Similar to current FAE
  • HR: Does JAWS use captions?
  • MR: Yes jaws supports caption, if there is both summary and caption it will use caption
  • NH: Why do we include aria labeling
  • JG: It would be more complicated rules to keep track of caption element and summary attribute in the code
  • HR: What if the author provides text to describing the content of the table
  • JG: ARIA described by
  • NH and HR: It seems to make sense to leave them in

TABLE 3
  • HR: I need more information, I rarely see useful summary
  • JG: Do we need this rule
  • MR: The rule makes sense, people should not hear the same thing twice
  • NH: What additional information do we need to support people understanding the rules
  • JG: WCAG has examples and we can create new best practices on how to create effective captions and effective summaries

TABLE 4
  • JG: This is more a recommendation than a violation, I updated the table

TABLE 5
  • JG: This rule is a recommendation when there is only 1 data table on the page

TABLE 6
  • JG: When there is more than one data table it becomes a violation

TABLE 7
  • MR: I don’t think we can ever require a summary
  • NH: I agree
  • JG: Summary is not dependent on the number of data tables on a page
  • ACTION: Delete table 7 and make TABLE 6 not dependent on the number of tables

TABLE 8 and TABLE 9
  • JG: These are teh same rules we have in FAE

TABLE 10
  • JG: Is ok as a recommendation
