Enabling accessibility features in applications

Verify the version tags to ensure you are consuming the intended content or, complete the latest version.

Screen monitors provide a visual display of UI, but some users require an accessibility device that presents the UI in another manner. Accessibility support extends a UI for users with devices that interpret the UI. A common accessibility device is a screen reader (such as JAWS) for the blind, which describes a page of content orally. In Pega Platform™ applications, you can enable accessibility without reconfiguring the UI.

After completing this module, you should be able to:

Explain how accessibility improves the experience for users who need nontraditional interaction mediums
Describe the purpose of accessibility roles
Enable accessibility in an application by applying accessibility roles to UI elements
Use the Accessibility Inspector to identify accessibility issues
