Tell Me

When you get this error, there are one or more tables in the course that do not have at least one row or column that was identified as the Header.

  1. View the table that needs headers selected by selecting “view the source of this issue.”
  2. Click the U FIX IT! Button.
  3. You will be provided with a drop menu where you can select whether The first row, The first column, or Both the first row and column to be turned into header cells.

  4. Once you've made your choice, click the Submit button and the Accessibility Checker (UDOIT) will apply the changes.

False Positives

If your table is meant to create a visual layout instead of organizing and conveying data, then you should ignore this result. The Header cell Cell Type should only be put on data tables.

Note: If possible, try to portray visual layout content without the use of tables.
