Hi All,

Good morning to all!

I have a question in terms of accessibility for a table with approx 10
columns and 1 main header column.

In order to show this table on mobile devices, I have used scrolling
feature, where the user can keep scrolling towards the right to view all
content. the first main header column is locked.

If you have a table with pretty good width, and users have to scroll
towards the right to view the content on mobile devices, will that be an
issue in terms of accessibility to meet  WCAG 2.0  success criteria?

I think this might not be a good approach in terms of usability and
accessibility, however, just wondering will this be breaking any WCAG S. C?

As usual, I honestly appreciate all expert feedback and thoughts for this
from members of this group.

Thank you so much!
