Re: Quick Question About Layout Tables


Jujube, layout tables are a very antiquated form of designing web
pages. They are now quite depricated, their function long ago having
been replaced by stylesheets.

This is *very* different from tabular data.

The option to announce layout tables is off by default in NVDA which further

Subject: [nvda] Quick Question About Layout Tables

Hi everyone,

I'm just curious about something. What exactly are layout tables and how are
they different from normal/regular tables? I've found them helpful for
making some tabular info on the web more accessible, but I'm curious as to
what they really are. Thanks.
