Kendo Editor - Table Wizard accessibility settings for headers needed

We would like the Kendo editor to provide more wysiwyg settings on headers in order to maintain accessibility standards for users. We need tables to default to data tables and not layout tables to meet accessibility checker standards.

When using the Kendo editor in Sitefinity, checking the "Associate cells with headers" box, nothing happens and I am not sure what steps need to be taken to associate them since that is the only setting in the table wizard that mentions headers. The only way to create headers is to go into the HTML and add them, this is not ideal for our users to have to do. This also creates an accessibility concern since all tables created default to layout tables versus data tables (in third-party accessibility checker), even when the table should be marked as a data table.


We need this MVC wysiwyg editor to fully function like it's webforms counterpart.  As newer users to Sitefinity we were encouraged/directed to use MVC as the product was transitioning to this model from webforms.  Unfortunately, not all of the tools transitioned to MVC retained all the functionality of their webform counterpart.

Hello Richard,

Thank you for logging this feature request. We will consider adding support for header table elements to the Editor's Table Wizard.
