How to get, “AAA” in your web design

AAA = Accessibility, Accommodation and Aesthetics

When we build web interfaces we should be creative, and try to accommodate the needs of every user keeping in mind accessibility aspect for everyone.

As frontend developers we must take into consideration of various types of screens and sizes such that the results of our work is as responsive as possible. Fulfilling that expectation may cause some problems, especially when we try to display a sizeable amount of data into a narrow mobile phone screen.

Most widely asked question by developers & designers is,

Data tables can be quite wide, and necessarily so, a single row of data needs to be kept together to make any sense in a table.

Jokes apart, but today we will look at 5 common solutions to handle data tables on small screens such as smartphones or tablets in vertical mode — let’s begin!
