Accessibility and Siebel Business Applications


The accessibility features in Siebel Business Applications aim to make aspects of navigating and using the Siebel Business Applications easier for people with disabilities. The accessibility features in Siebel Business Applications fall into the following categories:

  • Features that third-party assistive-technology products, such as screen readers and magnifiers, use. These features provide a user interface that consists of standard HTML elements that other products can easily interpret.
  • Keyboard shortcuts for navigation in Siebel Business Applications without the use of a pointing device, such as a mouse. You can use keyboard shortcuts to access controls and menus in the user interface.
  • The ability to configure the user experience. For example, you can use Siebel features to configure font size and colors in the user interface.

You can find information about accessibility, across the IT industry, in several published books. This guide does not intend to duplicate this published information. Also, the following legislation and accessibility standards exist:

  • Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act (in the USA). Section 508 applies to the standard-interactivity client with accessibility features enabled. For more information, see Section 508 Accessibility.
  • Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) for the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). Version 1.0 of WCAG applies to the standard-interactivity client with accessibility features enabled. For more information, see Web Content Accessibility Guidelines.

Accessibility legislation and standards are subject to interpretation and ongoing revisions. Several current standards, such as those that imply a ban on JavaScript, are outdated. Oracle derived its own standards for products. For more information about Oracle accessibility guidelines, see Accessibility Standards.
