Blazor TreeView Accessibility

The Telerik UI for Blazor TreeView 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.


Selector Attribute Usage
.k-treeview role=tree The root div element of the treeview.
.k-treeview-group:not(.k-treeview-lines) role=group The ul element that wraps child nodes.
.k-treeview-item role=treeitem The li element rendered for a tree node.
aria-level Announces the level of the tree node item. The value of level is number-based(>=1). Should be added when only subsection of the TreeView is rendered in the DOM.
aria-setsize Announces the total count of the items at this level. Helps the user understand the position of the navigation (ex: item 3 of 14). Should be added only when load more functionality of the tree is enabled and there are still nodes belonging to the group that are yet not loaded (rendered).
aria-expanded=true/false Announces the expanded state of the node. It is true when expanded, and false when collapsed.
aria-checked=true/false Rendered only when checkboxes are enabled and announces the checked state of the node. If the checkbox is indeterminate, the value is mixed.
.k-selected aria-selected=true Rendered only when selection is enabled and announces the selected state of the node.
.k-checkbox role=none/presentation Added to the wrapper element of the checkbox to prevent duplicated information announced to the user. The checked state is controlled by aria-checked.
aria-hidden=true Added to the checkbox element to prevent duplicated information announced to the user. The checked state is controlled by aria-checked.

If the tree supports Load More functionality, the load more button is rendered as li.k-treeview-item element and has role="button". The list item does not implement any of the above attributes.
