Progress JavaScript UI Toolkit Bakes In Accessibility

Progress released an update of its Kendo UI JavaScript component toolset for building Web UI, adding new functionality while meeting the latest Web accessibility standard.

The company claimed Kendo UI is the only such product in its space to support Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1. That standard from the W3C Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) defines how to make Web content more accessible to people with disabilities including visual, auditory, physical, speech, cognitive, language, learning and neurological disabilities.

Progress said supporting such standards with out-of-the-box accessibility baked in relieves developers from the burden of writing more code to provide accessible UI.

"We exist to help the developer community develop modern apps with the best customer experience easily and quickly,” said Faris Sweis, SVP & general manager Developer Tooling Business. “Accessible apps are a requirement for digital experiences that can engage everyone, including those with disabilities. We are proud to be the first to provide support for these standards to make the creation of accessible apps easy.”

Progress said it supported the previous version of the standard and meets all criteria added with the WCAG 2.1 update.

The new Kendo UI R3 2018 release also added many new components and themes, providing new functionality for jQuery, Vue, React and Angular developers.

Progress, which acquired .NET tools specialist Telerik in 2014, offers the Kendo UI toolset individually or as part of the DevCraft suite of development products, which also includes Telerik .NET, reporting and productivity tools, and Visual Studio templates.
