Looking for input on what a best practice would be.
In one document, I have four long tables that are identical in structure and range from one to 10 pages. They come one after another at the end of one section of text. Typically I only repeat the table header columns, but it is easy to get lost visually without the caption/title repeating for each table. The author set up a repeating caption/title in a merged cell spanning the tables' 6 columns.
Do I keep the table title repeating with the table header columns and make it an artifact so it is not read with each column by a screen reader? Would a person using a screen reader be able to retrieve the table title/caption of the table being read in case they get confused about which table is being read?
FYI: The tables are very technical and describe internal-only database functions and data.
