    Accessible RadEditor used by the Royal National Institute of Blind People

    RadFormDecorator –Skinned Radio Buttons, Checkboxes, Focus Dots and Accessibility

The focus dots that appear upon tabbing on a clickable HTML element (a, input, button, checkbox, radiobutton, etc) is a visual clue showing that the element is accessible via the keyboard or other device facilitating its manipulation.

    Accessibility and RadEditor

    The following blog post was written together with Rumen Jekov, who is the most experienced support officer at Telerik and has been supporting RadEditor for a number of years now. If you are a RadEditor user, and you contact us, chances are you will be receiving an answer from him. The blog post discusses the accessibility features of RadEditor.

    Telerik RadGrid Section 508 Compliance

    Ever wonder how to make a pageable & sortable grid Section 508 compliant? Well with RadGrid this is trivial task! The tricky part is to tell the grid to not render or require any JavaScript on the page: 1. Inherit from RadGrid and override three methods:     public class MyGrid : RadGrid     {         public MyGrid()         {             //         }         protected override void RegisterScriptControl()         {             // do not register as ScriptControl         }        ...
