    When you make a grid scrollable it appears to create 2 tables one for the head and one for the body. This causes the WAVE tool to see the body table as a layout table, which can cause issues for screen readers. Is anyone able to confirm that making a grid scrollable still confirms with WCAG AA standard?


    Thank you

    Hello Jack,


    This might happen if you have Frozen Columns, Virtual or Endless Scrolling enabled. It shouldn't happen with regular scrolling.

    Could you open the following live sample and verify that?
