Notes:

Criteria Conformance Level Remarks and Explanations

302.1 Without Vision

Software: Does Not Support

Authored Content (HTML): Does Not Support

Authored Content (PDF): Does Not Support

Software: The product provides users without vision some accessible names and some keyboard supported elements. However, a number of issues will prevent users without vision from fully using the product, like the inability to switch keyboard focus between panes

Authored Content (HTML): The content wrapper for HTML authored content will provide users without vision some controls to interact with; however, as noted in 1.3.1 Info and Relationships, 2.1.1 Keyboard, and 4.1.2 Name, Role, Value, core functionality is missing from authored content.

Authored Content (PDF): Authored content contains images exclusively, and PDF content is not tagged. Both of these will prevent users without vision from fully using authored content.

Authored content does not provide assistive technologies typically used by users without vision information on what content is interactive within a document. Additionally, all of the content is flattened into a single exposed image, preventing users from accessing the content, overall.

302.2 With Limited Vision

Software: Does Not Support

Authored Content (HTML): Supports with Exceptions

Authored Content (PDF): Does Not Support

Software: Users with limited vision can use some of the product’s features. However, a number of potential issues will be encountered, including:

  • A number of low color contrast areas are noted within the application, primarily for highlighted or currently active elements.
  • The UI for XD, with the exception of the initial screen to open projects, does not conform to Windows High Contrast mode.

Authored Content (HTML): Users with limited vision will be able to use most features of authored content but may face some difficulties. The content wrapper contains a visual indication of focus; however, as noted in 2.1.1 Keyboard, not all interactive content receives keyboard focus. Authors can design content to ensure that sufficient color contrast is met for test. Within the content wrapper, no images of text are used, but any text on artboards will become converted to an image of text within authored content.

Authored Content (PDF): Authored content will pose challenges for users with limited vision to use. While authors can design content to meet color contrast requirements, all text is presented as an image of text.

302.3 Without Perception of Color

Software: Supports

Authored Content (HTML): Supports

Authored Content (PDF): Supports

Software: Color is never used as the sole means of indicating information within the product.

Some generated content contains or uses colors that a visually impaired user cannot perceive, but hex values and other non-color means will identify these if a user opens the relevant panes.

Authored Content (HTML): Users without the perception of color will be able to interact with the content wrapper. Authored content appears as an image, but authors can create content that does not rely on color perception.

Authored Content (PDF): Authors can create content that does not rely on color perception.

302.4 Without Hearing

302.7 With Limited Manipulation

Software: Does Not Support

Authored Content (HTML): Does Not Support

Authored Content (PDF): Does Not Support

Software: Users with limited manipulation using the keyboard exclusively to interact with the product will encounter difficulties. Users of speech recognition software will encounter less issues, but may face problems calling controls by name.

Authored Content (HTML): Users with limited manipulation that use either the keyboard exclusively or speech recognition software to interact with authored content will encounter difficulties due to a lack of programmatically defined information within authored content.

Authored Content (PDF): Users with limited manipulation that use either the keyboard exclusively or speech recognition software to interact with authored content will encounter difficulties due to a lack of programmatically defined information within authored content.

302.8 With Limited Reach and Strength

Software: Supports with Exceptions

Authored Content (HTML): Supports with Exceptions

Authored Content (PDF): Supports with Exceptions

Software: Users with limited reach using a mouse or pointer device will be able to access all content. However, as noted within sections on limited manipulation, users of the keyboard or speech recognition software may find issues interacting with content.

302.9 With Limited Language, Cognitive, and Learning Abilities

Software: Supports

Authored Content (HTML): Supports

Authored Content (PDF): Supports

Software: A number of features are incorporated to ensure that a mode is usable by individuals with limited language, cognitive and learning abilities.

Icons used to describe most controls are provided with tooltips to ensure that users who would prefer reading words, rather than seeing icons, are aware what an icon’s function is.

Similarly, content is designed to be as predictable to as possible. Navigation is laid out in a consistent manner, and wherever possible, components for similar functions are reused.

Authored Content (HTML): Authors can design authored content in such a way that it will be usable by individuals with limited language, cognitive, and learning abilities. The content wrapper contains icons as well as tooltip text for most controls, which will assist users with limited language abilities.

Authored Content (PDF): Authors can design authored content in such a way that it will be usable by individuals with limited language, cognitive, and learning abilities.
