Rowheader Role

Previous Rowgroup role

To form a logical relation between the headers and the corresponding data in data tables <th> tags are used. These <th> tags are supported with HTML scope attribute. scope=”row” form a relation between row header and its corresponding data. In certain scenarios use of <th scope=”row”> might not be possible. Usage of role=”rowheader” helps in these situations. Role=”columnheader” does the same functionality for <th scope=”col”>. Screen readers such as JAWS and NVDA recognize the columnheader (role) and rowheader(role).
