Topic: Application Express
Owner: Brad Nance
Date: 2013-06-24
Subtopic: Tips and Techniques

My presentation will consist of five sections. In the first section, I will give a brief overview of the laws that require Section 508 compliance. In the second section, I will show how an “out-of-the-box” APEX application measures up against the most commonly tested 508 standards including: properly formatted data tables, image attributes, keyboard accessibility, tab order, input objects, and interactive reports. In the third section, I will provide techniques that can be used to address some of the challenges of developing 508 compliant APEX applications including: modification of templates to provide missing/additional object attributes, use of dynamic actions and jQuery to “dynamically” alter rendered html, and use of custom PL/SQL to render 508 compliant input objects in a tabular form. I will also cover the basics of the jQuery selector and the vital role of FireFox/FireBug and the Web Accessibility Toolbar in implementing and testing these techniques. In the fourth section, I will cover data tables showing examples of both simple and complex tables along with uses of scope and headers/id attribute pairs. In the final section, I will show how all of the techniques can be utilized to create a 508 compliant interactive report.
