Eursap’s Tip of the Week: SAP accessibility in the SAP Fiori launchpad
As we all know, the Fiori application is launched in a web browser. However, it has long been a priority of SAP to make the application as accessible to all, regardless of ability or disability.
As a result, all functionality and capabilities are specifically designed to cater for all users.
With this in mind, SAP have published an “Accessibility Guide”, which can be found here.
This document gives guidance to UI5 developers and application specialists when deciding upon standards to use for such areas as:
• Message handling
• Labelling of fields/areas on screens
• Landmarks (identification of sections of a page)
• Screen reader announcements
• Keyboard usage versus mouse usage
These areas can be especially useful when developing custom applications within the launchpad, to ensure that accessibility is front and centre of your solution.
I hope you find this useful! Stay tuned for another SAP Tip from Eursap next week.
