Blazor Drawer Accessibility

Out of the box, the Telerik UI for Blazor Drawer provides extensive accessibility support and enables users with disabilities to acquire complete control over its features.

The Drawer is compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.2 AA standards and Section 508 requirements, follows the Web Accessibility Initiative - Accessible Rich Internet Applications (WAI-ARIA) best practices for implementing the keyboard navigation for its component role, provides options for managing its focus and is tested against the most popular screen readers.


This section lists the selectors, attributes, and behavior patterns supported by the component and its composite elements, if any.

The Drawer component allows rendering a whole template inside of it. Thus, the accessibility roles are applied only when the built-in data-binding is used.

Selector Attribute Usage
.k-drawer ul role=menubar Indicates that the list of drawer items is a menubar.
aria-orientation=vertical Indicates that the orientation of the drawer is vertical.
.k-drawer-item:not(.k-drawer-separator) role=menuitem Indicates that the item of a drawer serves as a menuitem.
aria-label The drawer item requires an aria-label attribute when in mini mode and no content is rendered in the item. The aria-label points to the text field value of the item.
.k-drawer-item.k-drawer-separator role=separator Indicates that the item of a drawer serves as a separator.

Section 508

The Drawer is fully compliant with the Section 508 requirements.


The Drawer has been extensively tested automatically with axe-core and manually with the most popular screen readers.
