With a fixed header, JAWS reads the grid as 2 separate tables



When using adaptive technologies (screen reader software) to navigate and understand the content of tables created from a repeat grid with a fixed header, the top header row is read as an individual table and the underlying column data is read as a distinct separate table.

Error Messages

Not Applicable.

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Configure a repeat grid with a fixed header.
  2. Turn on the JAWS screen reader software and launch a flow containing the created repeat grid.
  3. JAWS reads the grid as two separate tables - JAWS says “table end” after the last column header.

Root Cause

This issue was determined to be a product enhancement request.


An enhancement request, FDBK-15333, has been created for consideration by Pega Product Management.
