Accessibility

Accessibility ensures that all users can access and interact with interfaces regardless of their abilities.

Accessibility and Odyssey

Our goal is to provide a usable and accessible experience for everyone. This is both an expression of our core value to love our customers and a legal requirement.

Odyssey components are designed and built to meet accessibility requirements out of the box. So, designers and engineers can focus on any accessibility concerns unique to their problem areas. Odyssey components meet WCAG 2.2 AA success criteria and WAI-ARIA guidelines.

Best practices for accessible design

Accessibility isn't just about complying with legal requirements; it's about making your product useable for everyone.

Designing for accessibility also benefits non-disabled users by improving the overall user experience. The following tabs highlight the major color, keyboard navigation, content, and layout accessibility concerns addressed by Odyssey.
