By activating options in the Preferences dialog box, you'll be prompted to provide accessibility-related information for form objects, frames, media, images, and tables as each element is inserted in a page.
- Accessible tables can easily be added, as Dreamweaver can automatically add table header cells that are correctly marked up.
