Ignite UI


igNumericEditor Accessibility Compliance

igNumericEditor Accessibility Compliance

All of the Ignite UI™ controls and components comply with Section 508, Subpart 1194.22 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. Table 1 contains the specific rules of Subpart 1194.22 that pertain to the control. Also detailed is how the igNumericEditor control complies with each rule.

To meet the requirements each accessibility rule, in some cases, you may need to interact with the control by to setting a specific property, but in other cases the control does the work for you.

Note: As jQuery controls are client-only, some of the rules are not supported and are marked as limitations.

Table 1: Section 508 compliance description

Rules How We Comply with Rules
(c) Using client side events, the user can change attributes of any of the control's DOM element reflecting the current state.
(d) The control's markup is readable without the associated style sheet because it’s a client-side control and depends on the CSS rules.
(l) When the control's scripts are changing the page markup, the new created content complies with the screen reader due to the attributes described in rule (c).
(n) Keyboard Navigation (igNumericEditor)

Note: If the tabindex option is not specified - tabindex equal to -1 is rendered as an attribute to the input element.
