Alt Tags for Tables

    Can you point me to some documentation that describes what an ALT tag is for a table? As far as I know, ALT tags are only available for images and are required because a screen reader can't tell what an image is. A table is made up of text and a screen reader can read through the table text.

    I did not take into consideration of the table being seen as text vs. image.  Thank you again for your timely response.

    In the mean time we have added a text section above the table for description.  I can double check we have to have it in the tagging to be accessible compliant, however if it will be read like all other text, we should be okay. 

    Have a great weekend!
