Accessibility refers to the possibility for everyone, including and especially people with disabilities, to access and use information and communication technology.
The ActiveControl Web Platform UI is built using SAPUI5 and SAP Fiori design system. Accessibility is an integral part of both of these, and as such, ActiveControl offers numerous capabilities to ensure Accessibility for all Basis Technologies customers and end-users.
