Content Accessibility Matters
As the creators of a highly popular WYSIWYG rich text editor, CKSource is no stranger to web standards. CKEditor is responsible for producing a good part of the HTML content online so it must always generate semantic markup. Web standards are what keep the Internet from chaos and accessibility plays an important role in defining how the Web is shaped. CKSource is proud of being fully committed to the cause and thus CKEditor complies with most important industry standards, recommendations and checklists, including:
- Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.0)
- Section 508 Amendment to the Rehabilitation Act of 1973
- IBM Web Accessibility Checklist
Accessibility Checker Is Here!
Accessibility Checker is an innovative solution that lets you inspect the accessibility level of content created in CKEditor and immediately solve any accessibility issues that are found.
It is built upon three key elements:
1) Intuitive user interface optimized for quick problem solving.
2) Flexibility allowing you to use the accessibility checking engine of your choice.
3) Quick Fix feature letting you fix common problems fully automatically.
All of this comes bundled with a tight integration with CKEditor.
You can enable Accessibility Checker by clicking the Check Accessibility () toolbar button. Once the button is clicked, Accessibility Checker will perform the content checking process. Typically it takes a fraction of a second. Depending on the result, Accessibility Checker will switch to checking mode or inform you that the document contains no accessibility issues. If any issues are found, use the Accessibility Checker panel to investigate and fix them - often with one click of a button!
