    Script for finding data tables?

    Hello,

    We have a site that has thousands of pages and tables are a big component. We use both layout tables and data tables. We want to replace all of our data tables with tables that are accessible to screen readers. This includes using <caption>, <th>, headers and id attributes, etc.

    Is there a script that will go through all of our pages automatically, and then come up with some kind of summary or list of the pages that are using data tables?

    Thanks.

    You would need a scraping script, which would then store the table information in a database, and could then perform tasks with that data, such as averages, summaries, etc.

    I don't knows of any that will do this specifically though I'm afraid. Maybe look into Yahoo Pipes and it's competitors.
