Section 1194.21 Software Applications and Operating Systems - Detail

Level of Support

Remarks & Explanations

(a) When software is designed to run on a system that has a keyboard, product functions shall be executable from a keyboard where the function itself or the result of performing a function can be discerned textually.

Supports

All GoReact functions can be accomplished from a keyboard.

(b) Applications shall not disrupt or disable activated features of other products that are identified as accessibility features, where those features are developed and documented according to industry standards. Applications also shall not disrupt or disable activated features of any operating system that are identified as accessibility features where the application programming interface for those accessibility features has been documented by the manufacturer of the operating system and is available to the product developer.

Supports

GoReact does not interfere with any accessibility features of operating systems or browsers.

(c) A well-defined on-screen indication of the current focus shall be provided that moves among interactive interface elements as the input focus changes. The focus shall be programmatically exposed so that Assistive Technology can track focus and focus changes.

Supports

GoReact uses default browser focus styles or enhanced styles which are compatible with the browser’s focus functions and Assistive Technology.

(d) Sufficient information about a user interface element including the identity, operation and state of the element shall be available to Assistive Technology. When an image represents a program element, the information conveyed by the image must also be available in text.

GoReact uses label and when necessary appropriate tag attributes such as aria labels to identify interactive elements

(e) When bitmap images are used to identify controls, status indicators, or other programmatic elements, the meaning assigned to those images shall be consistent throughout an application's performance.

Supports

The use of icons to depict interface elements is consistent throughout GoReact. If the icon does not also provide a text description alongside it, then an appropriate HTML attribute is used.

(f) Textual information shall be provided through operating system functions for displaying text. The minimum information that shall be made available is text content, text input caret location, and text attributes.

Supports

All textual information is provided through the web browser, and is independent of operating system.

(g) Applications shall not override user selected contrast and color selections and other individual display attributes.

Supports

GoReact does not override user settings.

(h) When animation is displayed, the information shall be displayable in at least one non-animated presentation mode at the option of the user.

Supports

GoReact animations display in a non-animated mode if browser animations are disabled.

(i) Color coding shall not be used as the only means of conveying information, indicating an action, prompting a response, or distinguishing a visual element.

Supports

GoReact does not use color alone to convey information. Other context is always available.

(j) When a product permits a user to adjust color and contrast settings, a variety of color selections capable of producing a range of contrast levels shall be provided.

N/A

The GoReact interface does not allow color or contrast setting adjustment.

(k) Software shall not use flashing or blinking text, objects, or other elements having a flash or blink frequency greater than 2 Hz and lower than 55 Hz.

Supports

GoReact does not use flashing or blinking text, objects, or other elements.

(l) When electronic forms are used, the form shall allow people using Assistive Technology to access the information, field elements, and functionality required for completion and submission of the form, including all directions and cues.

Supports

All forms in GoReact work with screen readers and keyboard controls.

     

Section 1194.22 Web-based Intranet and Internet information and Applications - Detail

Level of Support

Remarks & Explanations

(a) A text equivalent for every non-text element shall be provided (e.g., via "alt", "longdesc", or in element content).

Supports

All images in the GoReact user interface have alt-text descriptions.

(b) Equivalent alternatives for any multimedia presentation shall be synchronized with the presentation.

Supports

The GoReact video player supports closed captioning, and caption files may be uploaded by instructors to accompany their posted video material.

(c) Web pages shall be designed so that all information conveyed with color is also available without color, for example from context or markup.

Supports

GoReact does not use color alone to convey information. At a minimum, differentiating tooltips are available.

(d) Documents shall be organized so they are readable without requiring an associated style sheet.

Supports

GoReact only supports standard document types such as PDF which are readable without a style sheet.

(e) Redundant text links shall be provided for each active region of a server-side image map.

N/A

GoReact does not use server-side image maps.

(f) Client-side image maps shall be provided instead of server-side image maps except where the regions cannot be defined with an available geometric shape.

N/A

GoReact does not use server-side image maps.

(g) Row and column headers shall be identified for data tables.

Supports

Data tables contain descriptive row and column headers.

(h) Markup shall be used to associate data cells and header cells for data tables that have two or more logical levels of row or column headers.

Supports

GoReact data tables with two or more logical levels of row or column headers are marked up for row and column headers.

(i) Frames shall be titled with text that facilitates frame identification and navigation

Supports

GoReact does not make use of frames, and other screen areas are properly titled.

(j) Pages shall be designed to avoid causing the screen to flicker with a frequency greater than 2 Hz and lower than 55 Hz.

Supports

GoReact does not cause the screen to flicker with a frequency greater than 2 Hz or lower than 55 Hz.

(k) A text-only page, with equivalent information or functionality, shall be provided to make a web site comply with the provisions of this part, when compliance cannot be accomplished in any other way. The content of the text-only page shall be updated whenever the primary page changes.

Supports

GoReact is compliant with the provisions of this part, so a text-only version is not needed.

(l) When pages utilize scripting languages to display content, or to create interface elements, the information provided by the script shall be identified with functional text that can be read by Assistive Technology.

Supports

GoReact uses modern HTLM5 techniques and WAI-ARIA to provide feedback from interactive elements and to allow functionality with screen readers and keyboard controls.

(m) When a web page requires that an applet, plug-in or other application be present on the client system to interpret page content, the page must provide a link to a plug-in or applet that complies with 1194.21(a) through (l).

Supports

GoReact requires Adobe Flash plug-in for default recording functionality, and provides a link to it. Users can also upload their own multimedia content such as PDF files. Users uploading such content are responsible for communicating system or program requirements for accessing the multimedia content.

(n) When electronic forms are designed to be completed on-line, the form shall allow people using Assistive Technology to access the information, field elements, and functionality required for completion and submission of the form, including all directions and cues.

Supports

All forms in GoReact work with screen readers and keyboard controls.

(o) A method shall be provided that permits users to skip repetitive navigation links.

Supports

GoReact has a "skip navigation" link at the top of every page that bypasses navigation links and jumps to the main content of the page.
