Responsive tables are a tricky business, especially when it comes to accessibility.However, I think I’ve found a better solution than we initially had.
I’ve added a new style to the table gutenblock, called ‘responsive table’.This isn’t default, because it wouldn’t play nice with tables that don’t have headers, such as on the contacts page.However, for a table similar to the example attached, it should work well even on mobile.The first screenshot shows the desktop view, and the second the mobile view.The rows convert into columns and, when there are too many rows to fit within the screen, they scroll across instead, whilst the table headers remain in place.My screenshot shows the table partially scrolled.
As mentioned, this will only work for tables with a <thead>, which the gutenblock doesn’t support creating yet.However, if you convert a table from HTML to the table block, it will import a thead correctly. They can also be manually added via the code view for the block.
In addition, because screen readers would ordinarily not be able to read a table whose layout has been modified, I’ve added a11y labelling to tables, so that the semantics are maintained.
