Oracle Accessibility Conformance Report

VPAT® Version 2.0 - October 2017

Name of Product:

ADF Faces Rich Client Components (output of JDeveloper), 11g R1 Fusion Apps updated3 Rel11

Product Description:

This VPAT only covers Application Development Framework (ADF) Faces Rich Client Components 11g R1 Fusion Apps Rel11, (output of Oracle JDeveloper 11g R1 Fusion Apps Rel11).   It does not cover the issues when developing native mobile apps or that are built on ADF Mobile Browser framework that uses Apache MyFaces Trinidad components.  Please also refer to the ADF Mobile VPAT for any application issues that were built on ADF Mobile Browser framework using Apache MyFaces Trinidad components and not on ADF Faces rich client components.  For the JDeveloper user environment, refer to the Oracle JDeveloper 11g R1 Fusion Apps Rel11 VPAT.

ADF is capable of rendering content as described below, when an application developer uses it according to guidance provided in the reference manual, and follows all other applicable accessibility standards and guidelines, and in conjunction with the following 3 runtime modes: To provide content that is optimized for screen reader users, then the "accessibility mode" option should be set to "screenReader" in the application's trinidad-config.xml file. To provide content that is optimized for users who leverage platform high-contrast capabilities, then the "accessibility-profile" option should be set to "high-contrast" in the trinidad-config.xml file. To view content in large font that works in conjunction with browser zoom, then the "large-fonts" option should be set in trinidad-config.xml file. These options can all be dynamically specified on a per-user basis. For more information, see the Apache Trinidad Developer's Guide. The information provided in this VPAT only applies when the relevant mode is enabled for each applicable technical standard.

Notes:

Configuring accessibility is done in the Trinidad.xml file. The system administrator will need to configure the file for screen reader support.

Level AA - Yes
Level AAA - No

WCAG 2.0 Report

Table 1 also documents conformance with:

  • Section 508: Chapter 5 - 501.1 Scope, 504.2 Content Creation or Editing, and Chapter 6 - 602.3 Electronic Support Documentation

Table 1: WCAG Conformance Criteria

Criteria
Conformance Level
Remarks and Explanations
1.1.1 Non-text Content (Level A)Supports with Exceptions

The product was tested for :

  • Images that convey information have meaningful alternative text using ALT
  • Images that are decorative are marked up using ALT=”” or CSS background images
  • Information shown in complex images such as charts is also available in an alternative textual form (e.g. a data table)
  • Titles for Objects and Applets are provided
  • Controls have an associated name
  • Text summary or alternative is provided for time-based media
  • Client-side image maps specify the ALT attribute on each AREA element.
  • CAPTCHAs are not used

Exceptions :

  1. Bug# 13414846 : In Screen Reader mode, Gauge components will render in PNG format and include a simple client-side image map with the ALT attribute set on each AREA element. This can sometimes cause screen reader technologies to read the underlying data multiple times. Furthermore, if the Gauge component is data-bound to a collection such that it renders a series of multiple gauges, then the resulting image map structure can be at odds with use of the Tab key to navigate through the resulting GaugeSet.
  2. Bug# 18170173: The screen reader labels do not have the complete information for the Browser Based Theme Editor (BBTE) section .
  3. Bug# 20383948: In the ADF table component, add an extra header that spans several columns and give this header a label and a tooltip. Now, when we run the workbook and give focus to the first cell of the extra header, the screenreader does not announce that the cell "has comment" (tooltip). Pressing "ALT+SHIFT+'" also does nothing. The workaround is to give keyboard focus to the cell that contains the label text for the extra header row. Press tab or right arrow until we hit the cell where the screeenreader reads "has comment". Now, pressing "ALT+SHIFT+'"  makes the screeenreader read the tooltip text.
