What accessibility features are available in Circuit?
Circuit includes accessibility features that make it easier for people with disabilities to efficiently and effectively communicate and collaborate with their teammates.
The following accessibility features are available in Circuit:
Circuit Web Client and Desktop App
Screen reader support: blind or visually impaired users rely on assistive technology such as screen readers to use their computers and follow the content on the screen. Circuit web client and Desktop App have been tested with screen readers such as JAWS and NVDA.
Keyboard-operable interface: enables expert users who prefer keyboard commands and people with motor or vision impairment who have difficulty in using a mouse to easily interact and navigate within Circuit and have direct access to all main Circuit functions using keyboard shortcuts. For more information about the keyboard shortcuts in Circuit, please refer to:
Keyboard shortcuts can be used to automate tasks in JAWS.
Visible keyboard focus: keyboard-only users and people with attention limitations need a clear focus indicator so that they can navigate easily through the interactive elements of Circuit (buttons, links, input fields, etc.). On the Circuit web client and Desktop App keyboard focus becomes visible when the accessibility setting Visible keyboard Indicator is enabled.
High contrast text: people with vision impairment and people with little or no color perception need more color contrast to make text easier to read on their device. On the Circuit web client and Desktop App, the contrast ratio between the text and its background complies with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0, Level AAA, so that the text can be read by people with moderately low vision (who do not use contrast-enhancing assistive technology). Furthermore, a horizontal line under a tab title or a vertical line to the right of a tab icon makes easier for people to distinguish the active tab from the inactive ones.
Circuit supports the WCAG, Level A standard.
Circuit iOS mobile client
VoiceOver support: Circuit iOS mobile client works with the built-in screen reader VoiceOver.
Dynamic Types and support: people with vision impairment may increase the preferred font size for readability. Circuit iOS mobile client responds to text size changes, which are made through the Settings app on their iOS device, and updates accordingly its user interface.
High contrast support: Circuit iOS mobile client respond to increase contrast setting, which is made through the Settings app on their iOS device, and updates accordingly its user interface.
