Skeleton Accessibility

Out of the box, the Kendo UI for Vue Skeleton provides extensive accessibility support and enables users with disabilities to acquire complete control over its features.

The Skeleton is compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.2 AAA 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 Skeleton component does not have accessibility on its own as it is only visual indicator and should be integrated within an element that refers to the loading state. When integrated on a page, you might:

  • use aria-busy attribute to illustrate that the focusable element is loading
  • use role="alert" to announce the loading

Section 508

The Skeleton is fully compliant with the Section 508 requirements.


The Skeleton 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.
