Section 1194.21 Software Applications and Operating Systems - Detail Voluntary Product Accessibility Template

Criteria

Supporting Features

Remarks and explanations

(a) When software is designed to run on a system that has a keyboard, product functions shall be executable from a keyboard where the function itself or the result of performing a function can be discerned textually.

Partially Supported

Main usability of QuickField is related to graphical presentation of the physical fields, and control of the current view with Mouse.
But all features of QuickField are accessible without Graphical User Interface, using ActiveField Application Programming Interface, so it is possible to control QuickField and access the results in text mode using MS Office macros, or any other programming system which may be operated in text-only mode.

(b) Applications shall not disrupt or disable activated features of other products that are identified as accessibility features, where those features are developed and documented according to industry standards. Applications also shall not disrupt or disable activated features of any operating system that are identified as accessibility features where the application programming interface for those accessibility features has been documented by the manufacturer of the operating system and is available to the product developer.

Supported

No features of any other products or operating systems are disrupted or disabled by QuickField

(c) A well-defined on-screen indication of the current focus shall be provided that moves among interactive interface elements as the input focus changes. The focus shall be programmatically exposed so that Assistive Technology can track focus and focus changes.

Partially supported

On-screen indication of the current focus is well defined, however, exposure of the focus changes to the Assistive Technology elements is not always supported because it is useless to track focus by Assistive Technology means when it is located within the field picture, which is the main output of QuickField.

(d) Sufficient information about a user interface element including the identity, operation and state of the element shall be available to Assistive Technology. When an image represents a program element, the information conveyed by the image must also be available in text.

Partially Supported

All information available through icons and graphical user interface elements in QuickField is also available as text through a tooltip. However, access of the Assistive Technology to the identity, operation and state of elements is not always supported because the main output of QuickField - graphical field presentation - cannot be delivered to users by any alternative means without general loss of quality and accuracy.

(e) When bitmap images are used to identify controls, status indicators, or other programmatic elements, the meaning assigned to those images shall be consistent throughout an application's performance.

Supported

Bitmap images, such as icons and tool buttons, are used in a completely consistent manner throughout QuickField.

(f) Textual information shall be provided through operating system functions for displaying text. The minimum information that shall be made available is text content, text input caret location, and text attributes.

Supported

Standard operating system functions are used to output text by QuickField.

(g) Applications shall not override user selected contrast and color selections and other individual display attributes.

Supported

User-defined settings are fully respected by QuickField.

(h) When animation is displayed, the information shall be displayable in at least one non-animated presentation mode at the option of the user.

Supported

Animations are used only in tutorials, and fully correspond to the text information presented in Help and User Manual.

(i) Color coding shall not be used as the only means of conveying information, indicating an action, prompting a response, or distinguishing a visual element.

Supported

Information presented as color-coded field maps may be obtained in form of plots or local field data display which does not use color coding.

(j) When a product permits a user to adjust color and contrast settings, a variety of color selections capable of producing a range of contrast levels shall be provided

Supported

For color maps in QuickField the color grade number and range may be selected by user.

(k) Software shall not use flashing or blinking text, objects, or other elements having a flash or blink frequency greater than 2 Hz and lower than 55 Hz.

Supported

QuickField does not use flashing or blinking text at any time.

(l) When electronic forms are used, the form shall allow people using Assistive Technology to access the information, field elements, and functionality required for completion and submission of the form, including all directions and cues.

Not applicable

Electronic forms are not used in QuickField.

Supported

Hearing is not required for QuickField use.

(d) Where audio information is important for the use of a product, at least one mode of operation and information retrieval shall be provided in an enhanced auditory fashion, or support for assistive hearing devices shall be provided.

Not applicable

Hearing is not required for QuickField use.

(e) At least one mode of operation and information retrieval that does not require user speech shall be provided, or support for Assistive Technology used by people with disabilities shall be provided.

Supported
