Tiled WCAG

Follow

Tiled wants to help create engaging microapps for all users. Many aspects of a microapp’s accessibility are determined by the designers of a microapp, but we work to make both microapps and our own interface accessible where possible. 

We know that for many users, compliance with WCAG and Section 508 are of great importance, so we have provided a breakdown of how our technology can be used in accordance with WCAG guidelines where possible. We are always open to hearing customer needs and seeing where we can improve. To see how we address these standards, please refer to our documentation below or reach out with any questions.

Microapp Builder Accessibility 

 

Microapps

Guideline Tiled Response
Perceivable  
Guildeline 1.1: Text alternatives We currently do not provide mechanisms to add alt text, titles, and descriptions to images used in microapps, but this is something we hope to provide in the future. 
Guideline 1.2:  Time-based media Your designer is responsible to ensure your microapps meet this guideline.
Guideline 1.3: Adaptable Your designer is responsible to ensure your microapps meet this guideline.
Guideline 1.4: Distinguishable Your designer is responsible to ensure your microapps meet this guideline.

 

Operable  
Guideline 2.1: Keyboard Accessible We currently offer several keyboard control mechanisms, including next and previous page navigation. In the future, we plan to offer additional tools for navigation using a keyboard and a screenreader and functionality to set role and navigation priorities for interactive elements within microapps.
Guideline 2.2: Enough Time Your designer is responsible to ensure your microapps meet this guideline.
Guideline 2.3: Seizures and Physical Reactions Your designer is responsible to ensure your microapps meet this guideline.
Guideline 2.4: Navigable Your designer is responsible to ensure your microapps meet this guideline.

 

Understandable  
Guideline 3.1: Readable Your designer is responsible to ensure your microapps meet this guideline.
Guideline 3.2: Predictable Tiled microapps have a loading screen to provide clear feedback on the loading process. Interactive elements within microapps behave in expected ways (ie, clicking, scrolling, swiping, etc). Interface predictability is the responsibility of the designer of the microapp. 
Guideline 3.3: Input Assistance Your designer is responsible to ensure your microapps meet this guideline.

 

Robust  
Guideline 4.1: Compatible We currently do not provide mechanisms to add alt text, titles, and descriptions to images used in microapps, but this is something we hope to provide in the future. Doing this would allow assistive technologies to understand the content in a microapp.

  

 

Microapp Builder

Guideline Tiled Response
Perceivable  
Guildeline 1.1: Text alternatives We currently do not provide alt text, titles, and descriptions to all elements within the microapp builder, but this is an option we hope to provide in the future.
Guideline 1.2:  Time-based media Our builder requires user action to display and hide contextual information and processes, so the user is in control of time spent with all information presented.
Guideline 1.3: Adaptable Our builder scales responsively to fit the user's current browser viewport. 
Guideline 1.4: Distinguishable Navigation, overlays, controls, and other builder elements are clearly delineated for easy use.

 

Operable  
Guideline 2.1: Keyboard Accessible Keyboard controls for the Tiled builder are in progress. Availability will be updated here.
Guideline 2.2: Enough Time Our builder requires user action to display and hide contextual information and processes, so the user is in control of time spent with all information presented.
Guideline 2.3: Seizures and Physical Reactions All transitions, contextual interfaces, and elements in the Tiled builder are designed in a clear manner so they are not jarring or startling. 
Guideline 2.4: Navigable Our interface is designed to clearly delineate the purpose of each element and indicate the edit modes and tools engaged.

 

Understandable  
Guideline 3.1: Readable All interactive elements in the Tiled builder have accompanying text and often icons to clearly communicate utility.
Guideline 3.2: Predictable Elements in the Tiled builder are designed to behave in a predictable fashion that would be expected to a typical web user. Items can be selected and edited in contextual menus and condition-specific interfaces. 
Guideline 3.3: Input Assistance Suggestions push users to correct minor missing and useful items. In the event of potentially error-prone configuration, the builder will reject changes and provide clear messaging regarding these rejections.

 

Robust  
Guideline 4.1: Compatible We do not currently provide alt text, titles, and descriptions for assistive technologies within the builder, but this is something we hope to provide in the future.
