WAI-ARIA Support

This article demonstrates how to enable and use the WAI-ARIA support of the RadEditor and AccessibleRadEditor controls.

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

In order to enable the WAI-ARIA support, set the RadEditor / AccessibleRadEditor control's EnableAriaSupport property to true as shown in the example below.

Example 1: Setting the EnableAriaSupport property for RadEditor and AccessibleRadEditor

<telerik:RadEditor RenderMode="Lightweight" EnableAriaSupport="true" runat="server" ID="RadEditor1"></telerik:RadEditor>
<telerik:AccessibleRadEditor EnableAriaSupport="true" runat="server" ID="AccessibleRadEditor1"></telerik:AccessibleRadEditor>
RadEditor1.EnableAriaSupport = true;
AccessibleRadEditor1.EnableAriaSupport = true;
RadEditor1.EnableAriaSupport = True
AccessibleRadEditor1.EnableAriaSupport = True

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.
