I am battling with some tables on a site. The site is for holiday rentals of apartments, and there is an availability calender which shows availability for a date by color. This site was my first attempt at a general web site rather than IE specific, data driven, non standards system I have been working on for a few years.
There is a new version of the site I am working on and this site I want to be fully accessible. Now I do not want to lose the calender, however by its nature it is large, won't linearize well (at all!), but provides easy to see information for standard browser access.
The page in question is here
On this page there is an alternate look at the data giving periods free and prices. Again large but will linearize okay, and I plan to make this easier to understand but hope to keep the same format type.
How can I provide a good alternative to a calender? Is the price table good enough?
Will strike via CSS work at some level to provide non color alternatives?
How can I point effectively from a non-accessible table to an accessible format?
Can I still keep aiming for AAA if I have a set of tables that are impossible for a screen reader to cope with?
All help here is appreciated.
