Blazor ColorPicker Accessibility

The Telerik UI for Blazor ColorPicker component is WCAG 2.1 AA and Section 508 compliant. The component also follows the WAI-ARIA best practices for implementing the keyboard navigation for its component role, and is tested against the popular screen readers.


The ColorPicker popup contains in itself ColorGradient, ColorPalette, a UI to switch between them, and a button to reset its value. All the containing elements must implement their own specification apart from the ColorGradient element where some changes are required.
