ColorPicker Accessibility

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

The ColorPicker 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 ColorPicker popup contains in itself ColorGradient, ColorPalette, a UI to switch between them, and a button to reset its value. All the containing elements must implement their own specification apart from the ColorGradient element where some changes are required.
