Oracle Accessibility Conformance Report

VPAT® Version 2.0 - October 2017

Name of Product:

Oracle Business Intelligence Mobile 11.1.1.9

Product Description:

The Oracle Business Intelligence Mobile offering provides the ability to discover and consume business intelligence content that has been authored and assembled in Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition. It is available as both a universal Apple iOS based mobile application that runs on the Apple iPad and iPhone device delivered through the Apple iTunes store as well as a mobile App for Android available from the Google Play app store. The application provides an easy-to-use, secure, intuitive, and multi-touch, gestural interface for users to access and interact with business intelligence content such as analyses and dashboards. It also allows users to browse a catalog of business intelligence objects, selecting available reports or dashboards and displaying the output of this content on their mobile devices. Users can save Business Intelligence content on their devices for offline viewing as well as share their analysis with other users via email.The Oracle Business Intelligence Mobile applications do not allow for the creation of content from mobile devices. Business intelligence content is created by other products such as Oracle Business Intelligence Interactive Dashboards, Oracle Business Intelligence Answers and Oracle Scorecard and Strategy Management following which the content is made available thorough mobile applications. Content creators and authors making use of these products must follow the accessibility best practices which can be found in the Accessibility Index of the Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition Users Guide.

Notes:

This VPAT does not cover the following Product areas:

  • PDF documentation

Accessibility can be switched on by enabling the "VoiceOver", "Zoom", or "White on Black" options in the "Accessibility" screen under the "General" settings of the iOS device.

Further information is also available at "iPad: Configuring accessibility features (including VoiceOver and Zoom)" http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4064

Accessibility options for Android devices can be enabled through the Settings, General, Accessibility options area. Options include Vision, Hearing, Physical and Motion, Recognition, System and Services. The TalkBack and Invert color settings were primarily used as part of the testing for the Oracle Business Intelligence Mobile Application for Android.

Evaluation Methods Used:

Oracle's policy is to design, develop and test both products and documentation to be accessible. The recommended styles of testing for accessibility include: (i) algorithmic automated tests, (ii) human judgement tests such as tool-assisted tests, visual inspection and manual operation, and (iii) testing with assistive technology by people with and without disabilities. Additional information about Oracle's accessibility program is available on http://www.oracle.com/us/corporate/accessibility/index.html
