Drawer Accessibility

Out of the box, the Kendo React Drawer provides extensive accessibility support and enables users with disabilities to acquire complete control over its features.

The Drawer is compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.2 AA standards and Section 508 requirements, follows the Web Accessibility Initiative - Accessible Rich Internet Applications (WAI-ARIA) best practices for implementing the keyboard navigation for its component role, provides options for managing its focus and is tested against the most popular screen readers.


This section lists the selectors, attributes, and behavior patterns supported by the component and its composite elements, if any.

The Drawer component allows rendering a whole template inside of it. Thus, the accessibility roles are applied only when the built-in data-binding is used.

.k-drawer ulrole=menubarIndicates that the list of drawer items is a menubar.
aria-orientation=verticalIndicates that the orientation of the drawer is vertical.
.k-drawer-item:not(.k-drawer-separator)role=menuitemIndicates that the item of a drawer serves as a menuitem.
aria-labelThe drawer item requires an aria-label attribute when in mini mode and no content is rendered in the item. The aria-label points to the text field value of the item.
.k-drawer-item.k-drawer-separatorrole=separatorIndicates that the item of a drawer serves as a separator.

Section 508

The Drawer is fully compliant with the Section 508 requirements.


The Drawer has been extensively tested automatically with axe-core and manually with the most popular screen readers.

To report any accessibility issues, contact the team through the Telerik Support System.
