Accessibility

By default, the standard UI controls include keyboard navigation inherited from Adobe Flex. For more information see Accessible components and containers in the Flex documentation.

In addition, you can create a more accessible UI by following these standards, which benefit accessibility:

  • The Actions Menu standard promotes consistent wording and ordering of menu items.
  • The Validation standard gives pointers for preventing conditions that are prone to error.
  • The Messages and Confirmations standard describes how to handle a user-initiated action that cannot be reversed.
  • The Progress Indicators standard describes how to provide feedback when users must wait.
  • The Icons standard shows toolbar and message icons.
  • The UI Text standard lists common terms and vocabulary.
  • The Links standard promotes proper language and style for hypertext.
  • The Help standard describes how to embed instructional text in the UI--keep it brief.
  • The Navigator standard describes the standard workflow.
