Accessibility features for HCL Docs

Accessibility features assist users who have a disability, such as restricted mobility or limited vision, to use information technology content successfully.

Overview

HCL Docs includes the following major accessibility features:
  • Keyboard-only operation
  • Operations that use a screen reader
  • Keys that are discernible by touch but do not activate just by touching them
  • Industry-standard devices for ports and connectors
  • The attachment of alternative input and output devices
  • Screen magnification
Note: When viewing .pdf files in HCL Docs, if you have accessibility requirements, download the file and then open it with a third-party application that supports PDF accessibility.

HCL Docs uses the latest W3C Standard, WAI-ARIA 1.0, to ensure compliance with US Section 508 and Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0. To take advantage of accessibility features, use the latest release of your screen reader and the latest web browser that is supported by HCL Docs.

The HCL Docs online product documentation in IBM® Knowledge Center is enabled for accessibility. The accessibility features of IBM Knowledge Center are described in the Accessibility section of the IBM Knowledge Center help.

Interface information

The HCL Docs user interfaces do not have content that flashes 2 - 55 times per second.

The HCL Docs web user interface relies on cascading style sheets to render content properly and to provide a usable experience. The application provides an equivalent way for low-vision users to use system display settings, including high-contrast mode. You can control font size by using the device or web browser settings.

The HCL Docs web user interface includes WAI-ARIA navigational landmarks that you can use to quickly navigate to functional areas in the application.
