Bug Description

When sharing a page or collection (/view/access.php), the row headers in the column are overly complex and confusing for people navigating using a screen reader.
Currently there are two rows of <th> cells with different information in each row and various blank cells. These should be combined into one single row with headings like "Accessible from:", "Accessible to:", and hidden header cells where appropriate (eg. "Editing buttons" for the last row)

Rearranged table headers in Edit access (Bug #1262487)

appropriate and added labels to the "Comments" checkboxes.
