As web accessibility is an important aspect of applications, we continuously work towards ensuring Telerik UI components are compliant to the technical standards implied by WAI-ARIA, WCAG 2.1, and Section 508. In R3 2019 we improved accessibility for the Grid, Editor, and MultiColumnComobBox components.
To find our more about the importance of Accessibility and how it affects your applications, check out our whitepaper that we published earlier this year.

Along with building of new components and features, we are also continuously investing in updating and improving the documentation and demos that support your development work. We have also added a series of videos related to Getting Started with Telerik UI for ASP.NET Core.
