The Kendo UI for Angular Grid 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.
Due to the rich feature set of the library and complexity of some components, the specific combination of configuration options may lead to inaccessible component rendering. Perform thorough testing on any modifications applied to the Kendo UI for Angular components to ensure that they continue to comply with the desired level of accessibility standards.
The following example demonstrates the accessibility compliance of the Grid component. Open the example in a new window to evaluate it with Axe Core or other accessibility tools.
The described level of compliance is achievable with the Ocean Blue A11y Accessibility Swatch.
WCAG 2.2 introduces new specifications for dragging movements. The Grid's functionalities dependent on drag actions include:
- Grouping hierarchy reordering.
- Column resizing.
- Column reordering.
- Row reordering. Check how to enable the row reordering functionality through context menu integration.
The following example demonstrates a Grid that is fully compliant with the latest WCAG 2.2 AA accessibility guidelines. You can further adjust the implemented logic for the drag alternatives to better align with the project requirements.
All relevant internal elements of the Grid component have the aria attributes and roles with their respective values, required for WCAG 2.2 compliance.
The Grid is compliant with the Section 508 requirements.
The tool used for Automated Testing is Axe Core.
