502.2.1 User Control of Accessibility Features

Not Applicable

The product is not platform software.

502.2.2 No Disruption of Accessibility Features

Supports with Exceptions

The product does not disrupt most platform accessibility features; however, the high contrast desktop theme features offered by Windows do not perform sufficiently on the product. Many of the icons used for image buttons are not visible when a Windows High Contrast theme is applied, including the buttons on the vertical left-hand navigation bar, the toolbar icons shown below the menu bar, the linked CSS and JavaScript file tabs, and the minimize, maximize, and close controls.

The product does not disrupt equivalent features provided on the macOS platform, including Zoom, Invert Color, and Enhanced Contrast.

502.3 Accessibility Services

See 502.3.1-502.3.14

 

502.3.1 Object Information

Does Not Support

Most core functions of the product contain functional components which lack role, state, or accessible name information.

Most interactive elements on the “Work” tab of the Welcome screen are not sufficiently described. Controls do not provide programmatic roles or states, and image buttons do not provide descriptive labels. The Categories list found in the “Preferences” dialog is incorrectly described as a “tree view”, without announcing the selected value in the list. As previously stated in 1.3.1 Info and Relationships, on the Highlighting category of the “Preferences” dialog, the edit input fields and check box controls do not provide programmatic labels.

502.3.2 Modification of Object Information

Supports with Exceptions

In most cases, these states and properties can be modified by assistive technology. Exceptions include the toggle buttons displayed on the left-hand navigation bar which cannot be modified by the keyboard. The check box controls displayed in the Extract Category of the “Preferences” dialog cannot be modified without a pointing device.

502.3.3 Row, Column, and Headers

Does Not Support

In a few cases, the product displays elements arranged visually in rows and columns which cannot be programmatically determined by assistive technologies. As previously stated in 1.3.1 Info and Relationships, the “Recents” table on the “Work” tab of the Welcome screen and the “Extract” category of the “Preferences” dialog window do not provide programmatically determinable rows, columns, or column headers.

502.3.4 Values

Supports with Exceptions

The values of most input controls in the product are programmatically determinable; however, some values are not. The Categories list provided on the “Preferences” dialog does not provide the currently selected programmatically. Similar issues with these list views may be observed on the File Types category and the Linting category.

502.3.5 Modification of Values

Supports

When the value of an input control in the product can be modified by users in general, the value can be modified by assistive technology.

502.3.6 Label Relationships

Supports with Exceptions

Most form fields in the product provide an associated programmatic label; however, as previously stated in 1.3.1 Info and Relationships, input fields and checkbox controls are not associated to the visible labels to the left of the fields. Screen reader software does not provide a meaningful or informative label for these input fields.

502.3.7 Hierarchical Relationships

Supports with Exceptions

Some tree view controls, such as those used for browsing the file system and browsing the DOM in the right-hand side panels, provide sufficient text alternatives for the elements in the tree view. However, as previously stated in 1.3.1 Info and Relationships, the hierarchal relationships shown visually in the HTML on the code view do not effectively communicate the same hierarchy in a non-visual manner.

502.3.8 Text

Does Not Support

The text displayed in the code view of this product cannot be programmatically determined by assistive technologies. Screen reader software does not provide accurate audio feedback or does not provide any audio feedback while traversing the text.

502.3.9 Modification of Text

Supports

The text content of text input controls in the product can be modified by assistive technology.

502.3.10 List of Actions

Supports with Exceptions

Most actionable controls provide a common role, such as “button”, which informs the user what actions are available. As previously stated in 502.3.1 Object Information , some actionable controls do not provide a programmatic role nor a list of actions.

502.3.11 Actions on Objects

Supports with Exceptions

Most actionable controls can be activated by assistive technology; however, some controls either lack programmatic roles or are not exposed to assistive technologies altogether cannot be activated by alternative input methods.

502.3.12 Focus Cursor

Supports with Exceptions

Some controls in the product can gain focus, but do not indicate the focus location visually.

As previously stated in 2.4.7 Focus Visible, focus is not highly visible on the menu bar and submenu items. On the “Work” tab of the Welcome screen, the Search image button and user profile image icon also do not provide any visible indication of focus.

The Code View does not provide a clearly visible indication of the text insertion cursor while the opening and closing HTML tags are highlighted.

502.3.13 Modification of Focus Cursor

Supports

When a user can focus or change selection state of a control in the product via keyboard, then the focus or selection state can also be changed programmatically.

Non-standard keyboard commands are provided for moving focus between the displayed windows, including the opened documents tabs and right-hand side panels.

502.3.14 Event Notification

Supports with Exceptions

In most cases, when components in the product change their programmatic states and values the changes are available to assistive technology; however, toggle button controls and options on the Welcome screen show a visible selected state that is not available to assistive technologies. Similarly, changes in available controls on a dialog are not available to assistive technology, including the list box elements on the “Create New” dialog and the “Preferences” dialog.

502.4 Platform Accessibility Features

Not Applicable

The product is not platform software.

503 Applications

503.1 General. Applications shall conform to 503.

Criteria Conformance Level Remarks and Explanations

503.2 User Preferences

Supports with Exceptions

The product permits most platform user preferences; however, the high contrast desktop theme features offered by Windows do not perform sufficiently on the product. Many of the icons used for image buttons are not visible when a Windows High Contrast theme is applied, including the buttons on the vertical left-hand navigation bar, the toolbar icons shown below the menu bar, the linked CSS and JavaScript file tabs, and the minimize, maximize, and close controls.

The product permits the equivalent user preferences provided on the macOS platform.

503.3 Alternative User Interfaces

Not Applicable

The product does not function as an assistive technology.

503.4 User Controls for Captions and Audio Description

504.2.2 PDF Export

Not Applicable

The product does not include functionality for exporting PDF files.

504.3 Prompts

Does Not Support

The product provides functionality for authors to run reports on sites to help identify missing alt attributes and untitled documents; however, this functionality is not comprehensive enough to assist authors in meeting the WCAG 2.0 guidelines.

The product provides tag editor windows for authors to add attributes necessary for accessibility. When an image is inserted and the tag editor is displayed, no indication is made to inform authors that it is necessary to provide a valid alt attribute to ensure accessibility.

504.4 Templates

Supports with Exceptions

The product provides templates to assist authors in the creation of content.  Authors can ensure the WCAG 2.0 level A and AA requirements are satisfied. Templates make use of ARIA landmarks and structural heading markup.

However, the templates provided by the product fall short of the WCAG 2.0 level A and AA requirements. Some templates do not set a default language for the document, do not provide valid labels for Search input edit fields, and lack explicit column headers for data tables.

Criteria Conformance Level Remarks and Explanations

11.2.1 Software success criteria (excluding closed functionality)

See WCAG 2.0 section

See information in WCAG section

11.2.2 Software success criteria (closed functionality)

Not Applicable

 

11.3.2.3 Use of accessibility services

Supports

The product uses documented accessibility services within the user interface.

11.3.2.4 Assistive technology

Not Applicable

The product is not assistive technology.

11.3.2.5 Object information

Does Not Support

Most core functions of the product contain functional components which lack role, state, or accessible name information.

Most interactive elements on the “Work” tab of the Welcome screen are not sufficiently described. Controls do not provide programmatic roles or states, and image buttons do not provide descriptive labels. The Categories list found in the “Preferences” dialog is incorrectly described as a “tree view”, without announcing the selected value in the list. As previously stated in 1.3.1 Info and Relationships, on the “Highlighting” category of the “Preferences” dialog, the edit input fields and check box controls do not provide programmatic labels.

11.3.2.6 Row, column, and headers

Does Not Support

In a few cases, the product displays elements arranged visually in rows and columns which cannot be programmatically determined by assistive technologies. As previously stated in 1.3.1 Info and Relationships, the “Recents” table on the “Work” tab of the Welcome screen, and the “Extract” category of the Preferences dialog window do not provide programmatically determinable rows, columns, or column headers.

11.3.2.7 Values

Supports with Exceptions

The values of most input controls in the product are programmatically determinable; however, some values are not. The Categories list provided on the “Preferences” dialog does not provide the currently selected programmatically. Similar issues with these list views may be observed on the File Types category and the Linting category.

11.3.2.8 Label relationships

Supports with Exceptions

Most form fields in the product provide an associated programmatic label; however, as previously stated in 1.3.1 Info and Relationships, input fields and checkbox controls are not associated to the visible labels to the left of the fields. Screen reader software does not provide a meaningful or informative label for these input fields.

11.3.2.9 Parent-child relationships

Supports with Exceptions

Some tree view controls, such as those used for browsing the file system and browsing the DOM in the right-hand side panels, provide sufficient text alternatives for the elements in the tree view. However, as previously stated in 1.3.1 Info and Relationships,  the parent child relationships shown visually in the HTML on the code view do not effectively communicate the same relationships in a non-visual manner.

11.3.2.10 Text

Does Not Support

The text displayed in the code view of this product cannot be programmatically determined by assistive technologies. Screen reader software does not provide accurate audio feedback or does not provide any audible feedback at all while traversing the text.

11.3.2.11 List of available actions

Supports with Exceptions

Most actionable controls provide a common role, such as “button”, which informs the user what actions are available. As previously stated in 502.3.1 Object Information, some actionable controls do not provide a programmatic role nor a list of actions.

11.3.2.12 Execution of available actions

Supports with Exceptions

Most actionable controls can be activated by assistive technology; however, some controls that either lack programmatic roles or are not exposed to assistive technologies altogether cannot be activated by alternative input methods.

11.3.2.13 Tracking of focus and selection attributes

Supports with Exceptions

Some controls in the product can gain focus, but do not indicate the focus location visually.

As previously stated in 2.4.7 Focus Visible, focus is not highly visible on the menu bar and submenu items. On the “Work” tab of the Welcome screen, the Search image button and user profile image icon also do not provide any visible indication of focus.

The Code View does not provide a clearly visible indication of the text insertion cursor while the opening and closing HTML tags are highlighted.

11.3.2.14 Modification of focus and selection attributes

Supports

When a user can focus or change selection state of a control in the product via keyboard, then the focus or selection state can also be changed programmatically.

Non-standard keyboard commands are provided for moving focus between the displayed windows including the opened documents tabs and right-hand side panels.

11.3.2.15 Change notification

Supports with Exceptions

In most cases, when components in the product change their programmatic states and values the changes are available to assistive technology; however, toggle button controls and options on the Welcome screen show a visible selected state that is not available to assistive technologies. Similarly, changes in available controls on a dialog are not available to assistive technology, including the list box elements on the “Create New” dialog and the “Preferences” dialog.

11.3.2.16 Modifications of states and properties

Supports with Exceptions

In most cases, these states and properties can be modified by assistive technology. Exceptions include the toggle buttons displayed on the left-hand navigation bar that cannot be modified by the keyboard. The check box controls displayed in the Extract Category of the “Preferences” dialog cannot be modified without a pointing device.

11.3.2.17 Modifications of values and text

Supports

When the value or text of an input control in the product can be modified by users in general, the value can be modified by assistive technology.

11.4.1 User control of accessibility features

Not Applicable

The product is not platform software.

11.4.2 No disruption of accessibility features

Supports with Exceptions

The product does not disrupt most platform accessibility features; however, the high contrast desktop theme features offered by Windows do not perform sufficiently on the product. Many of the icons used for image buttons are not visible when a Windows High Contrast theme is applied including the buttons on the vertical left-hand navigation bar, the toolbar icons shown below the menu bar, the linked CSS and JavaScript file tabs, and the minimize, maximize, and close controls.

The product does not disrupt equivalent features provided on the macOS platform including Zoom, Invert Color, and Enhanced Contrast.

11.5 User preferences

Supports with Exceptions

The product permits most platform user preferences; however, the high contrast desktop theme features offered by Windows do not perform sufficiently on the product. Many of the icons used for image buttons are not visible when a Windows High Contrast theme is applied, including the buttons on the vertical left-hand navigation bar, the toolbar icons shown below the menu bar, the linked CSS and JavaScript file tabs, and the minimize, maximize, and close controls.

The product permits the equivalent user preferences provided on the macOS platform.

11.6.2 Accessible content creation (if not authoring tool, enter “not applicable”)

See WCAG 2.0 section

See information in WCAG section

11.6.3 Preservation of accessibility information in transformations

Supports

Authors can ensure the information required for accessibility is preserved to the extent the information is supported by the destination format while converting content from one format to another.

11.6.4 Repair assistance

Does Not Support

The product provides functionality for authors to run reports on sites to help identify missing alt attributes and untitled documents; however, this functionality is not comprehensive enough to assist authors in meeting the WCAG 2.0 guidelines.

The product provides tag editor windows for authors to add attributes necessary for accessibility. When an image is inserted and the tag editor is displayed, no indication is made to inform authors that it is necessary to provide a valid alt attribute to ensure accessibility.

11.6.5 Templates

Supports with Exceptions

The product provides templates to assist authors in the creation of content. Authors can ensure the WCAG 2.0 level A and AA requirements are satisfied. Templates make use of ARIA landmarks and structural heading markup.

However, the templates provided by the product fall short of the WCAG 2.0 level A and AA requirements. Some templates do not set a default language for the document, do not provide valid labels for Search input edit fields, and lack explicit column headers for data tables.
