Table Edit or Delete icons are not descriptive when using a screen reader.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Create a table.
  2. Configure the table with standard Edit and Delete icons.
  3. On the User portal, enable the JAWS screen reader.
  4. Create a few rows.
  5. Press Insert+F7 shortcut (links shortcut).

Root Cause

Field values were not created that met the user requirements.


Perform the following local-change: 
  1. Create a corresponding Helper Text field value for each icon.

  2. Customize the value to include the 'key' value used to identify the row.

  3. At run time, with JAWS enabled, press 'Insert+F7' to display the links on the page.

  4. To include the row number, include the {.pxListSubscript} in the field value.
