Name of Product: Oracle Documents Cloud Service: Desktop 16.3

Last Updated: 27-Oct-2016

This VPAT applies to only versions 16.3 through 17.0. It does not apply to any versions of Oracle Documents Cloud Service: Desktop after this.
This VPAT has been superseded by Oracle Documents Cloud Service: Desktop 17.1

The Oracle Document desktop client enables synchronization of files and folders between the Oracle Documents Cloud server and the local file system.  The application user interfaces are native to the OS, and supports Windows and Mac.  The main application window lists folders that are available for synchronization as well as folders that are currently being synchronized with the local desktop.  There is a menu bar for accessing features of the application, along with a context menu in the list for accessing folder specific features, such as starting or stopping the synchronization of a folder.  The list supports multiple selection, sorting and filtering.

The application will continue to run in the background when the main application window is closed.  There is a system tray icon for accessing features and for opening the main application window. 

All synchronized folders are downloaded to a My Oracle Documents folder on the local file system.  The application adds a menu item to the local file system menu for all files and folders under the My Oracle Documents folder so that synchronization properties and features can be accessed directly from the file system. On Windows, icon overlays are also used on file and folder icons to provide a quick visual indication of the state of synchronized files and folders.  This information is also available from the properties dialog.

As the user interface is native to the OS, the accessibility features are all those supported by the OS.  These include keyboard accessibility, keyboard shortcuts, high contrast mode, large fonts and screen reader support.

This document describes the extent to which the product conforms to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 'A' and 'AA' levels as described at http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG20/, and the applicable U.S. Section 508 standards, subject to Oracle's interpretation of those standards and the remarks in this document.

Criteria
Supporting Features
Remarks (e.g., definition, equivalent facilitation, scope of support provided)
1.1.1 Non-text Content: All non-text content that is presented to the user has a text alternative that serves the equivalent purpose, except for the situations listed below. (Level A)
  • Controls, Input: If non-text content is a control or accepts user input, then it has a name that describes its purpose. (Refer to Guideline 4.1 for additional requirements for controls and content that accepts user input.)
  • Time-Based Media: If non-text content is time-based media, then text alternatives at least provide descriptive identification of the non-text content. (Refer to Guideline 1.2 for additional requirements for media.)
  • Test: If non-text content is a test or exercise that would be invalid if presented in text, then text alternatives at least provide descriptive identification of the non-text content.
  • Sensory: If non-text content is primarily intended to create a specific sensory experience, then text alternatives at least provide descriptive identification of the non-text content.
  • CAPTCHA: If the purpose of non-text content is to confirm that content is being accessed by a person rather than a computer, then text alternatives that identify and describe the purpose of the non-text content are provided, and alternative forms of CAPTCHA using output modes for different types of sensory perception are provided to accommodate different disabilities.
  • Decoration, Formatting, Invisible: If non-text content is pure decoration, is used only for visual formatting, or is not presented to users, then it is implemented in a way that it can be ignored by assistive technology.
Product has been developed to conform to this standard subject to the remarks on the right. The product was tested for:

  • Text summary or alternative is provided for time-based media
  • Non-text characters are not used or have meaningful alternative text
  • CAPTCHAs are not used

Exceptions:

  • Windows Explorer folder icon overlays used to indicate sync status do not have a text alternative but their meaning is provided in a text format in the Sync Status dialog available through the context menu on every synced folder and file (Bug 16984922).
  • Decorative images in the InstallShield based installer are read out by screen readers (Bug 16969952).
 
1.2.1 Audio-only and Video-only (Prerecorded): For prerecorded audio-only and prerecorded video-only media, the following are true, except when the audio or video is a media alternative for text and is clearly labeled as such: (Level A)
  • Prerecorded Audio-only: An alternative for time-based media is provided that presents equivalent information for prerecorded audio-only content.

  • Prerecorded Video-only: Either an alternative for time-based media or an audio track is provided that presents equivalent information for prerecorded video-only content.

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

There is no prerecorded audio or video content in the product

1.2.2 Captions (Prerecorded): Captions are provided for all prerecorded audio content in synchronized media, except when the media is a media alternative for text and is clearly labeled as such. (Level A) Product has been developed to conform to this standard subject to the remarks on the right.

No Pre-recorded video content is being used

1.2.3 Audio Description or Media Alternative (Prerecorded): An alternative for time-based media or audio description of the prerecorded video content is provided for synchronized media, except when the media is a media alternative for text and is clearly labeled as such. (Level A) Product has been developed to conform to this standard subject to the remarks on the right.

No Pre-recorded video is being used

There is no live audio content in the product

1.2.5 Audio Description (Prerecorded): Audio description is provided for all prerecorded video content in synchronized media. (Level AA) Product has been developed to conform to this standard subject to the remarks on the right.

There is no prerecorded video content in the product

1.3.1 Info and Relationships: Information, structure, and relationships conveyed through presentation can be programmatically determined or are available in text. (Level A) Product has been developed to conform to this standard subject to the remarks on the right. The product was tested for:
  • User interface component labels are associated with the fields they are labeling via the LabelFor and LabeledBy relations
  • Headings are marked as such with a Group relation from the header to the items beneath the header
  • Lists are contained within a List component
  • Tables are contained within a Table component, implement the AccessibleTable interface, provide an AccessibleSummary, and contain include row and column headers where appropriate

Exceptions:

  • Headings are not properly marked up on login page (Bug 22294270)

 

1.3.2 Meaningful Sequence: When the sequence in which content is presented affects its meaning, a correct reading sequence can be programmatically determined. (Level A) Product has been developed to conform to this standard subject to the remarks on the right.

The product was tested for:

  • The accessibility hierarchy is logical

Exceptions:

  • Toaster style notification pop-ups are not accessible by screen readers, user can receive same notifications via email (Bug 23129294).
  • When clicking on a notification in the Windows 10 notification center the Keyboard and screen reader focus is not set to be within the newly opened IE session (Bug 23152160).
  • When optimizing the local content storage using the ‘Optimize’ feature, screen reader focus does not jump to the live Optimization status. In order to access the status a workaround for screen reader users is to re-read the entire dialog from the top(Bug 19001699).
  • When multiple sync problems are reported in the Problems dialog the top half of the dialog lists all the problems found and the bottom half of the dialog provides a short description about the selected problem. Currently, screen reader focus does not move directly from a highlighted problem to its description below but moves through all the listed problems before landing on the description of the last problem. A workaround for screen reader users is to TAB to the Problems list and use the ARROW keys to move to a specific problem then TAB out of the Problems list and into the Description pane. (Bug 16954530).
1.3.3 Sensory Characteristics: Instructions provided for understanding and operating content do not rely solely on sensory characteristics of components such as shape, size, visual location, orientation, or sound. (Level A)

1.4.1 Use of Color: Color is not used as the only visual means of conveying information, indicating an action, prompting a response, or distinguishing a visual element. (Level A)
Note: This success criterion addresses color perception specifically. Other forms of perception are covered in Guideline 1.3 including programmatic access to color and other visual presentation coding.
Product has been developed to conform to this standard subject to the remarks on the right.

The product was tested for:

  • Information conveyed by color is available in alternative formats, such as shape, text, font weight
  • Information conveyed by color has a contrast ratio of at least 3:1

Exceptions:

  • In login screen if bad credentials are provided an error message is displayed using a red font color but no other means are used to highlight the error. (Bug 22293738)
1.4.2 Audio Control: If any audio on a Web page plays automatically for more than 3 seconds, either a mechanism is available to pause or stop the audio, or a mechanism is available to control audio volume independently from the overall system volume level. (Level A)
Note: Since any content that does not meet this success criterion can interfere with a user's ability to use the whole page, all content on the Web page (whether or not it is used to meet other success criteria) must meet this success criterion. See Conformance Requirement 5: Non-Interference.
Product has been developed to conform to this standard subject to the remarks on the right.

The product was tested for:

  • No automatically playing audio is used
1.4.3 Contrast (Minimum): The visual presentation of text and images of text has a contrast ratio of at least 4.5:1, except for the following: (Level AA)

Exceptions:

  • Parts of the Windows Installer wizard do not honor the high contrast settings of the OS.(bug 16990776)
  • There is no visible focus indicator on the “Launch Oracle Documents” check box on the last page of the Windows Installer wizard. (Bug 16975466)
  • Within a folder or file Sync Status dialog if you tab through the controls to the Option button only a very faint blue highlight on either sides of the Options button is seen. This is only an issue in high contrast mode. (bug 17282596).
1.4.4 Resize text: Except for captions and images of text, text can be resized without assistive technology up to 200 percent without loss of content or functionality. (Level AA) Product has been developed to conform to this standard subject to the remarks on the right.

The product was tested for:

  • Text (and application) resizes up to 200% using the platform's built-in magnifier or zoom feature

 

1.4.5 Images of Text: If the technologies being used can achieve the visual presentation, text is used to convey information rather than images of text except for the following: (Level AA)
  • Customizable: The image of text can be visually customized to the user's requirements;
  • Essential: A particular presentation of text is essential to the information being conveyed.
Note: Logotypes (text that is part of a logo or brand name) are considered essential.
Product has been developed to conform to this standard subject to the remarks on the right.

The product was tested for:

  • Images of text are not used
2.1.1 Keyboard: All functionality of the content is operable through a keyboard interface without requiring specific timings for individual keystrokes, except where the underlying function requires input that depends on the path of the user's movement and not just the endpoints. (Level A)
Note 1: This exception relates to the underlying function, not the input technique. For example, if using handwriting to enter text, the input technique (handwriting) requires path-dependent input but the underlying function (text input) does not.
Note 2: This does not forbid and should not discourage providing mouse input or other input methods in addition to keyboard operation.
Product has been developed to conform to this standard subject to the remarks on the right.

The product is composed of components that have full keyboard operation implemented as documented in the Appendix A Keyboard Shortcuts, Mnemonics, and Other Keyboard Operations of the Java Look and Feel Design Guidelines. Where the product uses components developed after this document was published, those components use the WAI-ARIA Keyboard Bindings and Behaviors, or other keyboard operation as documented in the product documentation.

The product was tested for:

  • ability to perform functions from the keyboard only
  • logical movement of focus through the controls
  • proper operation of unique keystrokes, including those listed in the product documentation
  • ability to use the product with OS keyboard aids: StickyKeys and FilterKeys
Exceptions:
  • Toaster style notification pop-ups are not keyboard accessible (Bug 23128984)
  • On Mac, if the application is running windowless in the background the option to ‘Open Sync Manager’ is available only through an application menu in Menu Bar Extras.This menu is not currently keyboard accessible but can be accessed with VoiceOver (Bug 20160641)
  • If Federated SSO has been enabled the Keyboard focus within the sign in screen moves from the 'Sign In' button to the `Remember my choice' checkbox without putting focus on the `Company Sign In' button (Bug 23578902).
 
2.1.2 No Keyboard Trap: If keyboard focus can be moved to a component of the page using a keyboard interface, then focus can be moved away from that component using only a keyboard interface, and, if it requires more than unmodified arrow or tab keys or other standard exit methods, the user is advised of the method for moving focus away. (Level A)
Note: Since any content that does not meet this success criterion can interfere with a user's ability to use the whole page, all content on the Web page (whether it is used to meet other success criteria or not) must meet this success criterion. See Conformance Requirement 5: Non-Interference.
Product has been developed to conform to this standard subject to the remarks on the right.

The product was tested for:

  • Movement of focus through each control only using the keyboard, with no "keyboard trap" that prevents focus from moving away from any control
2.2.1 Timing Adjustable: For each time limit that is set by the content, at least one of the following is true: (Level A)
  • Turn off: The user is allowed to turn off the time limit before encountering it; or
  • Adjust: The user is allowed to adjust the time limit before encountering it over a wide range that is at least ten times the length of the default setting; or
  • Extend: The user is warned before time expires and given at least 20 seconds to extend the time limit with a simple action (for example, "press the space bar"), and the user is allowed to extend the time limit at least ten times; or
  • Real-time Exception: The time limit is a required part of a real-time event (for example, an auction), and no alternative to the time limit is possible; or
  • Essential Exception: The time limit is essential and extending it would invalidate the activity; or
  • 20 Hour Exception: The time limit is longer than 20 hours.
Note: This success criterion helps ensure that users can complete tasks without unexpected changes in content or context that are a result of a time limit. This success criterion should be considered in conjunction with Success Criterion 3.2.1, which puts limits on changes of content or context as a result of user action.
Product has been developed to conform to this standard subject to the remarks on the right.

The product was tested for:

  • Time limits are not used
2.2.2 Pause, Stop, Hide: For moving, blinking, scrolling, or auto-updating information, all of the following are true: (Level A)
  • Moving, blinking, scrolling: For any moving, blinking or scrolling information that (1) starts automatically, (2) lasts more than five seconds, and (3) is presented in parallel with other content, there is a mechanism for the user to pause, stop, or hide it unless the movement, blinking, or scrolling is part of an activity where it is essential; and
  • Auto-updating: For any auto-updating information that (1) starts automatically and (2) is presented in parallel with other content, there is a mechanism for the user to pause, stop, or hide it or to control the frequency of the update unless the auto-updating is part of an activity where it is essential.
Note 1: For requirements related to flickering or flashing content, refer to Guideline 2.3.
Note 2: Since any content that does not meet this success criterion can interfere with a user's ability to use the whole page, all content on the Web page (whether it is used to meet other success criteria or not) must meet this success criterion. See Conformance Requirement 5: Non-Interference.
Note 3: Content that is updated periodically by software or that is streamed to the user agent is not required to preserve or present information that is generated or received between the initiation of the pause and resuming presentation, as this may not be technically possible, and in many situations could be misleading to do so.
Note 4: An animation that occurs as part of a preload phase or similar situation can be considered essential if interaction cannot occur during that phase for all users and if not indicating progress could confuse users or cause them to think that content was frozen or broken.
Product has been developed to conform to this standard subject to the remarks on the right.

The product was tested for:

  • There is no moving, blinking or scrolling content

Exception:

  • The Sync status on the status bar at the bottom of the Sync Manager auto-updates in real time to show the user that some sync activity is occurring in the background.This activity may be triggered by the user changing local content or be triggered by a change on the server.(Bug 16892297)
2.3.1 Three Flashes or Below Threshold: Web pages do not contain anything that flashes more than three times in any one second period, or the flash is below the general flash and red flash thresholds. (Level A)
Note: Since any content that does not meet this success criterion can interfere with a user's ability to use the whole page, all content on the Web page (whether it is used to meet other success criteria or not) must meet this success criterion. See Conformance Requirement 5: Non-Interference.
Product has been developed to conform to this standard subject to the remarks on the right.

The product was tested for:

  • No portion of the screen flickers or flashes with a frequency between 2 Hz and 55 Hz

2.4.3 Focus Order: If a Web page can be navigated sequentially and the navigation sequences affect meaning or operation, focusable components receive focus in an order that preserves meaning and operability. (Level A) Product has been developed to conform to this standard subject to the remarks on the right.

The product was tested for:

Exceptions:

  • When optimizing the local content storage using the ‘Optimize’ feature, screen reader focus does not jump to the live Optimization status. In order to access the status a workaround for screen reader users is to re-read the entire dialog from the top(Bug 19001699).
  • When multiple sync problems are reported in the Problems dialog the top half of the dialog lists all the problems found and the bottom half of the dialog provides a short description about the selected problem. Currently, screen reader focus does not move directly from a highlighted problem to its description below but moves through all the listed problems before landing on the description of the last problem. A workaround for screen reader users is to TAB to the Problems list and use the ARROW keys to move to a specific problem then TAB out of the Problems list and into the Description pane. (Bug 16954530).
2.4.4 Link Purpose (In Context): The purpose of each link can be determined from the link text alone or from the link text together with its programmatically determined link context, except where the purpose of the link would be ambiguous to users in general. (Level A) Product has been developed to conform to this standard subject to the remarks on the right.

The product was tested for:

  • The text of links and their surrounding paragraph, list, table cell (with marked up table headers), is sufficient to describe their purpose
2.4.5 Multiple Ways: More than one way is available to locate a Web page within a set of Web pages except where the Web Page is the result of, or a step in, a process. (Level AA) Product has been developed to conform to this standard subject to the remarks on the right.

Oracle non-Web software products, including bundles and suites of software, do not behave as a set of software programs as the term is defined. Therefore this guideline does not apply.

2.4.6 Headings and Labels: Headings and labels describe topic or purpose. (Level AA) Product has been developed to conform to this standard subject to the remarks on the right.

The product was tested for:

  • Headers describe the topic or purpose of the content below them

(Level AA) Product has been developed to conform to this standard subject to the remarks on the right.

There is only one language shown in the app. There is no label where it differs from that of the application/platform.

 

3.2.1 On Focus: When any component receives focus, it does not initiate a change of context. (Level A) Product has been developed to conform to this standard subject to the remarks on the right.

The product was tested for:

  • When an element receives focus, it does not result in a substantial change to the user interface of the software, an additional change of keyboard focus, or the spawning of a new window
3.2.2 On Input: Changing the setting of any user interface component does not automatically cause a change of context unless the user has been advised of the behavior before using the component. (Level A) Product has been developed to conform to this standard subject to the remarks on the right.

The product was tested for:

  • Changes in the value of user interface components does not result in a substantial change to the user interface of the software, an additional change of keyboard focus, or the spawning of a new window
3.2.3 Consistent Navigation: Navigational mechanisms that are repeated on multiple Web pages within a set of Web pages occur in the same relative order each time they are repeated, unless a change is initiated by the user. (Level AA) Product has been developed to conform to this standard subject to the remarks on the right.

Oracle non-Web software products, including bundles and suites of software, do not behave as a set of software programs as the term is defined. Therefore this guideline does not apply.
