Shield UI, a leading software component vendor, has just announced that their latest release includes improved accessibility support.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The team has taken a very important step in upgrading the Shield UI framework to conform to the most-recent WAI-ARIA 1.1 technical specification, thus improving the accessibility and interoperability of web content and applications. This functionality provides developers with out-of-the-box support for writing applications suitable for users with disabilities, who rely on assistive technologies like screen readers. Another powerful feature of the library is that most Shield UI widgets have built-in keyboard navigation, which is a crucial aspect of the interaction between users and web applications. This allows users to switch focus to and from a UI component and use different access keys for performing specific widget functions. More information about each widget can be found in the online examples section, located at: ( https://demos.shieldui.com )
