Edd Sowden embarks on an epic accessibility journey where he tries to understand why changing the display property of a table has an impact on its semantic meaning.

A couple of notes that I found interesting here:

  • In the future we might be able to use <table role="table"> as a useful hack for overriding those style changes and preserving accessibility.
  • The accessibility tab in Chrome‚Äôs web inspector can be enabled with ‘Developer Tools experiments’ and turning on ‘Accessibility Inspection’.
