Techniques for WCAG 2.0. The intent of this technique is to ensure that users can navigate through content in a logical order that is consistent with the meaning of the content.

Techniques for WCAG 2.0

Correct tab and reading order is typically accomplished using a tool for authoring PDF. For sighted users, the logical order of PDF content is also the visual order on the screen. For keyboard and assistive technology users, the tab order through content, including interactive elements (form fields and links), determines the order in which these users can navigate the content. The tab order must reflect the logical order of the document. Logical structure is created when a document is saved as tagged PDF. If the reading order is not correct, keyboard and assistive technology users may not be able to understand the content.

The simplest way to ensure correct reading order is to structure the document correctly in the authoring tool used to create the document, before conversion to tagged PDF. Form fields missing from the tagged content. WAI-ARIA - an introduction to accessible rich internet applications (… Using WCAG and ARIA for an accessible project. WAI-ARIA: Information & examples.

Multi-Modal Content Delivery for People with Cognitive Disabilities

Textual content can be provided in a variety of alternative modes / formats as described below. Ideally, people with cognitive disabilities should be able to choose that content is delivered in the mode they comprehend best. (This is an important component of the proposed Global Public Inclusive Infrastructure.) Text To Speech Text To Speech (TTS) is hardware and/or software that produces human speech by a device such as a computer. Many people with cognitive disabilities, such as Dyslexia, may have the capacity to use a screen reader for text to speech (TTS).

A common one is a TTS widget embedded in a website. The TTS should be limited to relevant content, and exclude such text as found in menus, footers, and advertisements. Video. Accessibility. Many Android users have different abilities that require them to interact with their Android devices in different ways.

Accessibility

These include users who have visual, physical or age-related limitations that prevent them from fully seeing or using a touchscreen, and users with hearing loss who may not be able to perceive audible information and alerts. Android provides accessibility features and services for helping these users navigate their devices more easily, including text-to-speech, haptic feedback, gesture navigation, trackball and directional-pad navigation. Android application developers can take advantage of these services to make their applications more accessible.

Android developers can also build their own accessibility services, which can provide enhanced usability features such as audio prompting, physical feedback, and alternative navigation modes.

WAI-ARIA Overview

Introduction WAI-ARIA, the Accessible Rich Internet Applications Suite, defines a way to make Web content and Web applications more accessible to people with disabilities. It especially helps with dynamic content and advanced user interface controls developed with Ajax, HTML, JavaScript, and related technologies. Currently certain functionality used in Web sites is not available to some users with disabilities, especially people who rely on screen readers and people who cannot use a mouse. This page describes the problems that WAI-ARIA addresses, and introduces the WAI-ARIA suite of technical documents. Making Ajax and Related Technologies Accessible Figure 1: Tree control Web sites are increasingly using more advanced and complex user interface controls, such as tree controls for Web site navigation like the example in Figure 1.
