- Can I create accessible content and applications using Adobe Digital Enterprise Platform (ADEP) software?
Yes, Adobe Document Services Designer software has a number of features that support the creation of accessible content and applications, which are then rendered by the ADEP solution capabilities.
For each field object in a form, you can specify one of several settings for screen reader text. The Designer Accessibility palette is used to specify custom text for an object that a screen reader reads as a user interacts with a form. If custom screen reader text is available for the object, the screen reader will read the custom text and not the tool tip.
Designer allows form creators to specify how users using assistive technology will navigate through a form or tab through its fields in an efficient, meaningful way.
- Can people with disabilities use Designer?
Designer is compatible with assistive technology and has an extensive set of keyboard shortcuts. It honors the platform accessibility settings. Users with severe visual disabilities and certain mobility impairments will find it difficult or will be unable to use some Designer object drawing and placement features.
- What kind of forms can be made accessible with ADEP?
With Designer, you can create accessible PDF and HTML forms. The forms and templates created by Designer can be dynamically rendered as accessible interactive forms in PDF and HTML using ADEP capabilities.
- Does ADEP comply with applicable standards?
Proper use of the accessible authoring features in Designer allows authors to design forms that comply with government accessibility requirements for online forms, including Section 508 and World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) WCAG 1.0 Level AA guidelines.
For information regarding how ADEP enables government agencies to comply with the provisions of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act, refer to the Voluntary Product Accessibility Templates for the ADEP capabilities.
