Category: SAP UX

This is a collaborative document to share knowledge and lessons learned re Accessibility in the community SAP Fiori.

By Fiori we mean: relating to Fiori design and development, SAPUI5 and OPENUI5 apps.

By Accessibility we mean relating to features that support:

  • People with permanent disabilities
  • People with temporary disabilities
  • People as they age, e.g. mature workforce
  • People with contextual disabilities - i.e. by choice or context choose to access technology as if disabled, such as working without hands when driving a car, using a smartphone with only one hand, etc.
  • People who by preference like to use technologies in different ways, e.g. pinch zoom, Siri & other voice assistants
  • Assistive devices and software - such as Screen Readers, Screen Magnifiers, Eye Tracking Navigation, Text-to-Speech, Speech-to-Text, Speech Recognition, Gesture Recognition, etc.

Assistive devices and software:

  • may be used by or designed for anyone, e.g. Siri in Apple iPhones, Dragon Naturally Speaking for Speech Recognition
  • are often essential for people with certain specific disabilities, e.g. JAWS Screen Readers for the vision impaired
