Accessibility

Referentials

OpenDataSoft uses two referentials’ guidelines at AA levels for Accessibility:

Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)

We also follow Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Standards for Accessible Design in order to improve access to information for people with disabilities.

Since the ADA encourages self-regulation of accessibility standards and doesn’t define the regulations, organizations are encouraged to use the WCAG 2.0 level AA guidelines.

Therefore, the OpenDataSoft public facing content is ADA compliant because it follows WCAG 2.0 - AA.

We also have a Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT) accessible on demand.

What does OpenDataSoft do for accessibility?

Here are a few examples of what the OpenDataSoft platform implements to improve accessibility:

  • The decorative elements have WAI-ARIA attributes to avoid text-to-speech triggering
  • The images are tagged with alt attributes and meaningful titles
  • The links are tagged with a meaningful description
  • All of the user interface elements are navigable with a keyboard (including tabs and tabular data)
  • When using different languages, elements are properly tagged to ensure a better text-to-speech
  • The modal windows have appropriate focus and focus cycling
