Tabular information may be missing table markup

Issue/Question

Under the Accessibility Final Checks I receive the Potential Problem: Tabular information may be missing table markup.

Environment

  • Omni CMS

Cause

Potential problems are either code that may cause errors or possible errors that cannot be automatically checked and require human review.

Omni CMS Final Checks look over all the code on a page and detect accessibility issues that do not meet WCAG 2.0 (Level AA) standards. It has detected that the page possibly contains text that is emulating the look of a table, without using the correct table element. Tabular data is data that belongs in a table grouped into columns and rows.

Resolution

If you page contains data that should be a table it will need to be put into a Table element using the WYSIWYG. This does not apply to multi column layouts. Do not use tables to create columns for non tabular content, instead use the column snippets. If your page does not contain any tabular content this page check can be disregarded.

  1. Check out the page if it is not already.
  2. Click the  Edit tab.
  3. Click the  Edit Button on the content area where the text is located.
  4. Table to create columns and rows to house your data.
    Note: Add WKU styling to your table and create table headers to increase accessibility.
  5. Save the page.
  6. Click the Publish button to run the accessibility final check again.
