The Gantt is accessible by screen readers and provides WAI-ARIA support.

WAI-ARIA Support

The component sections follow the WAI-ARIA Authoring Practices for implementing the keyboard navigation for its component roles - treegrid for the TreeList part, and tree for the Timeline, and is tested against the popular screen readers.

The keyboard navigation feature of the Kendo UI Gantt for Angular is disabled by default. For more information on how to enable it, refer to the article on keyboard navigation.

Section 508

The Gantt is compliant with the Section 508 requirements.


The following issues are related to the WAI-ARIA support limitations of browsers and screen readers:

  • JAWS Screen Reader, prior to version 2018 will not read column headers. Instead it will only read the column index.
