Re: Kendo UI spreadsheets

There is an example at https://demos.telerik.com/kendo-ui/spreadsheet/index. I had a look at the code, which is best described as "pure filth". There is precisely zero semantic structure and the spreadsheet is completely unusable with a screen reader. It's just a mess of div elements and JavaScript, and there are not even any ARIA attributes to try and make any sense of it.

I don't know if this is just a terrible implementation, but I can't find any others.

Subject: [WebAIM] Kendo UI spreadsheets

I am working with a team that is looking at Kendo UI spreadsheets to incorporate on a site. Does anyone had experience or insight on the accessibility of Kendo UI?
Thank you
