Toggle Accessibility Inspector doesn't show accessibility issues



When using the Toggle Accessibility Inspector, issues related to the Pega out-of-the-box (OOTB) properties or features display instead of Accessibility issues on the section created.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Create a Section or UI.
  2. Execute the Toggle Accessibility Inspector.

Root Cause

This behavior is as per Pega product  design.


Here's the explanation for the reported behavior:

The Accessibility tool is based onSsemantic HTML. The quick win in Semantic HTML is to use a structure of headings and paragraphs for the content. This is because, screen reader users tend to use the headings of a document as SignPosts to locate the required content. This definitive structure is enforced by the tool.

In this use case, most of the OOTB sections use dynamic layouts which do not have a header. The semantic HTML structure enforces the use of headers for these layouts. However, adding a header for each of the dynamic layouts is cumbersome and is not required when the content in the layout has definitive tags and labels. Hence, these are warnings which can be ignored. The custom sections which contains dynamic layouts without headers display a warning. This is not specific to only the out-of-the-box sections.
