Screen Reader Support for SAPUI5 ControlsLocate this document in the navigation structure

SAPUI5 offers screen reader support in order to aid people with visual impairments. The implementation is based on the ARIA (Accessible Rich Internet Applications) standard.

General Information

Currently, the following libraries have screen reader support based on the ARIA standard:

  • sap.m

  • sap.suite.ui.commons

  • sap.tnt

  • sap.ui.commons

  • sap.ui.comp

  • sap.ui.core

  • sap.ui.generic

  • sap.ui.layout

  • sap.ui.suite

  • sap.ui.table

  • sap.ui.unified

  • sap.ui.ux3

  • sap.uxap

  • sap.viz

While ARIA-compliant screen readers may work fine, SAPUI5 is only tested and supported for desktop applications for the following configuration. Test reports are available upon request:
  • Windows 7, 64-bit

  • Internet Explorer 11

  • JAWS version 16

  • No special JAWS settings are necessary - just plain out-of-the-box installation.

  • No screen reader activation settings are necessary since the accessibility mode in SAPUI5 is switched on by default.
