Custom configuration options for accessibility
Pega Platform provides an expanding framework for building an accessible user interface. While the accessibility features are designed to cover most use cases out-of-the-box, you can also change their default settings to match your particular business needs.
This approach provides greater flexibility when building an UI, but requires additional maintenance, and might not be optimal for users who rely on assistive technology.
What to do next: Discover more about customizing accessible solutions in the following articles:
- Managing the main content of your application
Define the primary content of your portal to ensure that users who rely on assistive technology can navigate your application with less effort.
- Setting the navigation menu to permanently expanded
Create a better experience for users of assistive technologies by keeping the main navigation menu permanently expanded.
- Assigning WAI-ARIA roles to a Dynamic Layout
Make your application more accessible to users with disabilities by adding semantic information about the role of a layout on a page. When you define the role of a layout in your UI, you provide screen reader users with the information that they require to successfully navigate your application.
- Setting PDF file versions
Align the format of the files in your application with the needs of your business. Use this setting to define what type of PDF files your application generates, and manage the tradeoffs between better accessibility (PDF/UA standard) and stability in long-term storage (PDFA/1-b standard).
- Setting initial focus to the assignment title
Provide users who rely on screen readers with a more context-sensitive user experience by configuring the application to focus on the form title first.
