Bringing Everyone to the Table: An Open-Source Accessible Table Editor Web Component

Presented by Nikki Massaro Kauffman

“I love how my CMS lets users create accessible, responsive tables!” said no one, ever.

No matter how many things a WYSIWYG editor or an author interface gets right, we still don’t have a UI that helps novices create accessible tables… until now. This session will highlight the pain points of creating tables on the web, how I created the table-editor web component, and how you can use this open source project.
