WAI-ARIA Support

This article demonstrates how to enable and use the WAI-ARIA support of the RadButton control.

The WAI-ARIA Suite defines an approach to make web content and web applications more accessible to people with disabilities. RadButton offers WAI-ARIA support.

In order to enable the WAI-ARIA support, set the RadButton control's EnableAriaSupport property to true as shown in Example 1.

Example 1: Enabling WAI-ARIA support for RadButton

<telerik:RadButton RenderMode="Lightweight" ID="RadButton1" runat="server" EnableAriaSupport="true" Text="Button with WAI-ARIA attributes">

The implementation of the WAI ARIA support is achieved entirely client-side (using JavaScript) by appending different attributes and appropriate WAI-ARIA roles to the DOM elements. This is done because an HTML document containing ARIA attributes will not pass validation if they are added on the server.
