    Hi Telerik Team,

    I have the below RadGrid with Detail Table. It's column headers are not readable by the 508 compliance tools (like NVDA). Can you please suggest what can i do so the tool reads the column headers?

    The tool should read the Indicator column as Indicator (HeaderText )


    <telerik:GridTableView Name="detail1" DataKeyNames="ProdId" Width="95%" BorderStyle="Solid" BorderWidth="1px" HorizontalAlign="Center">
            <telerik:GridBoundColumn UniqueName="Indicator" HeaderText="Indicator" HeaderButtonType="TextButton" DataField="prodId" />

    As you can see in the following link (testing the hierarchical RadGrid with WAVE), the headers of the detail tables are compliant with Section 508, and Level AA of the WCAG 2.0 Guidelines:
    As for the readers, you should enable WAI-ARIA support by setting the EnableAriaSupport property to "true".

    Hope this helps.
