    Hello Jan,

    Concerning Web Accessibility, Spark UI is flexible and allows for adjustments to accommodate multiple aspects of users’ needs. Some examples of this are: Controls can be sized larger, developers can control the tab indices, and the Icons we use allow for manual techniques to adjust for accessibility (http://fontawesome.io/accessibility/).

    There are lots of technologies that assist web browsing, and are usually implemented based on users’ needs. Multiple parts of Web Accessibility depend upon how the developer designs the User Interface. To have a UI address ‘all’ user needs, there must be specific needs and the assisting software must be accounted for (e.g. Auditory software to read the Web Page). If there are specific needs that your customer requires be addressed, please elaborate.


    Best Regards,

    Salient Support

    Our customer asked for statements of compatibility with accessibility standards, such as WCAG. It seems to be a hot topic around the world, also in the US. Any thoughts about this?

    Rgds, Jan

    Hi Jan,

    Accessibility per your references will be available sometime over the next year. This is part of the collaboration we will be doing with IBM to bluewash the product. We do not have a specific date for when this will be available yet. However, given the scope and complexity, I would expect it is at least three to six months out.
