In resent years accessibility lawsuits have have been increasing in
number. This has resulted in law changes worldwide. In many countries
employers, state and local governments are required by law to make their
services and/or tools provided to employees and public accessible to
ensure that people are not discriminated against on the basis of
disability. This does not exclude software solutions.
I thought to take a minute to mention some of the accessibility
features that LWCM 70 Authoring Portlet has to support a more accessible
and usable UI interface.
Tab are now aria enabled and screen readers can announce their status (selected or not)
Furthermore Information, Warning and Error messages are automatically notifying screen reader users as they appear rather that the user having to find the messages and read them.
These are just some of the features that LWCM has in an effort to continue supporting People with Disability (PwD)
