Guidelines and design tips for accessible applications

Updated on September 14, 2020
Note: This article is not compatible with Pega Platform™ 8.1 and later.

The following list contains configuration guidelines and design tips developers should follow when building applications using existing Process Commander functionality intended to comply with accessibility standards.

  • Do not use px or px-fixed layouts — these layouts fix the width of windows and forms
  • Do not use inline styles — these styles fix fonts, colors and other style attributes
  • Do not use the deferred load feature
  • Avoid the use of AJAX-based displays — these typically require use of the mouse. Features to avoid include: conditional hide and show displays, onscreen calculations, and hover-over displays on worklists and harnesses
  • Avoid using multiple icons — initial focus will be placed on them and not on the first input field
  • Provide shortcut keys for frequently used buttons, fields, and actions
