You are going to need text

* either visible as in
  <th>Sum:</th>
* or invisible as in 
  <td><span class="off-screen">Sum:</span> <span
class="double-underscore">1234</span></td>
* or - if the sum happens to be an active element - with title, aria-label,
aria-describedby or similar, i.e.
<button title="Sum">1234</button>
