  • (1888PressRelease) July 20, 2010 - iFlexweb has been in the industry of Flex development since years and has time and again found that the web applications designed through Flex lack accessibility still most of the companies do not take this into account. It is important to know that in the Internet world accessibility does not mean how well an application can be used but relates to how much the application is useful to the differently able people.

    The field of Flex development is vast and includes lot of codes, tools, programs, frameworks etc. Similarly it also includes different tricks which can be used to make the application accessible to all. But still it is not understood why Flex developers miss to take this into consideration. Expressing its grief over how Flex development professionals ignore the accessibility aspect of the website iFlexweb explains how a Flex development company can work towards making the applications more useful.

    1) For people with visual disability it is important that the Flex application should have a screen reader or screen magnifier. Audio events and cues are also of great help. Braille display is also used by many to make it easy for the visually challenged to read.

    2) Logical page or screen structure can help Dyslexic users of the application developed using Flex development tactics. Design based application can have greater effects.

    3) Full keyboard navigation is essential for people unable to reach the mouse swiftly. Other similar techniques can also be used.

    4) For people who are unable to recall and find it difficult to comprehend a combination of all the three points as mentioned above will work wonders.

    "By taking these small things into consideration even the Flex development company can benefit because all these things are highly rewarded by Google and immensely help increase the rankings. Also a Flex developer should remember that implementing such features might take some time or cause some inconvenience but would be very beneficial to the people we need to help" commented Senior Project Manager, iFlexweb.
