The following are changes in Oracle Application Express Accessibility Guide for Oracle Application Express 18.1.
The following features are new in this release:
Developers can make use of the built-in Advisor tool to quickly assess and improve their apps for all users.
The following features have been deprecated for this release:
Screen Reader mode
High Contrast mode
Rather than separate options that must be enabled by developers, the functional aspects of these modes have been more fully integrated into Oracle Application Express by default.
Accessibility Modes will be fully removed in a future release. Developers should update their apps accordingly, such as reviewing coded plug-ins and other functionality that checks if these modes are running. At present, enabling these modes has no effect on any native Application Express components.
