Hello mkyre,

In terms of accessibility support and other major criteria of the section 508 concerning the Assistive Technology  - yes, RadControls for WPF are compliant. We are working on a detailed article and we will publish it some time next week. I will follow up here with more details.

All the best,

Hi Brian,

Ui for WPF provides built-in support for Microsoft UI Automation – the accessibility framework for Microsoft Windows, please check the UI Automation Support topic for more details on the matter.
Could you tell us which of our WPF controls are you using and have you experienced any concrete issues regarding their accessibility?

Looking forward to you reply.

Regards,
Yana

Thanks.

I don't have any issues to report. I was just looking for information on how accessibility is supported by the WPF tools.

I found the following page for WinForms that speaks directly to each of the 508 compliance criteria.

http://docs.telerik.com/devtools/winforms/section-508-compliance

Is there anything similar for the WPF stack?

Hello Brian,

I am afraid we do not have an official topic about Section 508 available.  Still, if you tell us which of the sections you're interested in and regarding which of our controls, we will be able to provide more information.
