New to Kendo UI for Angular? Start a free 30-day trial


The Kendo UI for Angular Chart component is WCAG 2.2 AA and Section 508 compliant. The component also follows the WAI-ARIA best practices for implementing the keyboard navigation for its component role, and is tested against the popular screen readers.

Meeting some of the Success Criteria in WCAG 2.2 may require additional customization:

  • 1.4.3 Contrast (Minimum)

    The color of chart elements may need to be customized to meet the minimum required contrast level. Some Theme Swatches like the Ocean Blue A11y Accessibility Swatch meet and exceed this criteria.

  • 2.5.8: Target Size (Minimum)

    The size of Series Markers and the font size of Legend Items may need to be customized to meet the minimum size of 24x24px required by this criteria.

The following example demonstrates the accessibility compliance of the Chart component. Open the example in a new window to evaluate it with Axe Core or other accessibility tools.
