TPG have been involved with Flex accessibility since the first release and our developers have worked directly on the latest Flex component library (Spark), adding accessibility properties and testing output. We have worked with Adobe to provide white papers and webinars and have delivered training courses to software companies and web teams. With this expertise we can support any project or team no matter where they are in the development process.
As well as covering general accessibility criteria, such as alternate text descriptions, use of color etc., our Flex courses deal with issues specific to Flex and how to resolve them. Topics include:
Overview and compliance with standards (Section 508, WCAG 2.0 etc.)
- Labels and descriptions
- Keyboard support
- Tab order
- Information for controls
- Error handling
- Modifying custom controls
- User selected font sizes and color settings
Training is delivered in the form of instruction and hands-on modules. Hands-on modules usually involve testing Flex applications using testing tools and assistive technologies (such as screen readers) to identify issues and discuss solutions. There is also time set aside for attendees to ask the instructor specific questions about problems they have or their particular projects.
