360|Flex and Accessibility of ILOG Elixir charts

During this month we’ll be in San Jose for the 360|Flex, during the presentation we’ll talk about the accessibility of the Flex Framework and we’ll eplore how to create an accessible custom component.

The presentation will be on Flex and Accessibility with a practical demo of how to make ILOG Elixir component accessible for impaired users; the component we would like to work on is the OrgChart component on which we’ll implement a short description and a long one that is readable from the screen readers.

After the presentation we’ll publish for sure a lot of slides and practical samples.

    I have a question regarding web accessibility of Flex components. Does Flex chart support web accessibility? Is it possible to navigate different bars in chart using key board only?

    Yes it’s possible they support accessibility but I’m pretty sure that to extend the components in order to implement a full keyboard navigation handling the focus and the tab index of the nested elements.
