Supporting Features
Remarks (e.g., definition, equivalent facilitation, scope of support provided)
1194.21(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. Product has been developed to conform to this standard subject to the remarks on the right.

For the web-based application and utilities with a GUI: the product was tested and has been found to be operable from the keyboard using access keys indicated with an underscore; the focus has been found to move logically.

For the utilities with CLI: a CLI interface is keyboard only by definition. There are no buttons or other graphical user interface and hence there is no focus.

There are currently 111 known open bugs regarding keyboard operation and focus. To the best of our judgement none of these bugs prevent the use of any primary function of the product using the keyboard.

 

1194.21(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. Product has been developed to conform to this standard subject to the remarks on the right.

For the web-based application and utilities with a GUI: the product was tested with Sticky Keys, Filter Keys, Toggle Keys, Sound Sentry and High Contrast. The product does not disrupt or disable these features. Please note that the web-based application includes its own High Contrast mode which should be used instead of the operating system's High Contrast mode, and also its own Zoom function which should be used instead of the operating system and browser's zoom functionality.

For the utilities with CLI: the utilities respect and do not change any of the operating system's accessibility features.

There are currently 43 known open bugs regarding the High Contrast mode and Zoom functionality. To the best of our judgement none of these bugs prevent the use of any primary function of the product.
