I think the X is a common convention. Remember, a sighted person just has an X to go on same as a blind person using a screen reader would.

Subject: [WebAIM] symptom table

Hi folks, need your opinion/input please :)

We have a table in an article where there are "X"s in the cells where a symptom applies to one condition or another - you can see it here:

Is it OK to leave these as X, or would it be best to change them to yes/no or use a label or something?? We want to make sure this thing makes sense.
