Accessibility - Screen Reader - Row and Column Headings

When using a screen reader (NVDA) to interact with a table in a public Power BI dashboard the screen reader is numbering the columns incorrectly. 

 

There are 3 columns in the table. The screen reader reads the first column as column 2, the second column as column 3, and the third column as column 4. 

 

A video of this issue has been uploaded to YouTube and can be viewed below:

Hi @jamie5,

 

You may refer to this official document: Creating accessible reports in Power BI - Power BI | Microsoft Docs to help you improve the screen reader experience.

Generally, turning on scan mode or browse mode off is recommended when using screen reader. In addition, you could switch to show data table, then you will get a screen reader friendly table.

Thank you @v-cazheng-msft!

 

While this is being investigated I have added alt text to refer users to switch to the show data table for a correct screen reading.
