Smart.CheckBox - Accessibility
CheckBox provides a built-in compliance with WAI-ARIA specification. This is achieved through attributes like role, aria-checked, aria-hidden. They are applied to the corresponding elements inside the template of the components. The CheckBox has a role "checkbox" which will allow the component to be recognized as a standart element.
The purpose of the ARIA attributes is to help disabled people by providing the information specific to the component to assistive technology in the screen readers.
- aria-checked - indicates the current "checked" state of the Checkboxes.
- aria-hidden - applied to internal elements from the template of the CheckBox to indicate that they do not take part in the interaction with the component and will not be mapped to the accessibility API.
The following keyboard shortcuts are available to interact with the CheckBox:
|Space||Check/Uncheck the CheckBox.|
