Logi JReport supports exporting reports to both accessible HTML and PDF results for people who experience disabilities or have special needs, so that they can access the reports through the use of assistive tools.
In addition Logi JReport Server provides an accessible version to read reports by reader agent or other assistive tools. In the accessible version, reports are displayed in HTML format with accessibility attributes, and table/crosstab components are output as HTML data table.
Below is a list of the sections covered in this topic:
- Making HTML Format Report Result Accessible
- Exporting Reports to Accessible PDF Files
- The Accessible Version of Logi JReport Server
Logi JReport supports accessibility related HTML attributes and a built-in accessible Logi JReport Server console for displaying the report result in HTML format. The implementation standard is based on HTML specification 4.01 http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG10-HTML-TECHS/ and information on Section 508 Standards: http://www.section508.gov and http://www.access-board.gov.
When designing a report in Logi JReport Designer, you can add the accessibility related HTML attributes to the report objects in order to make the HTML format result more readable and accessible. Those attributes are provided in the Accessibility group of the Report Inspector.
To add accessibility to a report in the HTML format result:
- Predefine necessary accessibility attributes when designing the report.
When a report object is selected, the corresponding accessibility attributes are available in the Report Inspector. For details about the accessibility attributes for each report object, see Report Object Properties.
- Enable Section 508 compliant output when exporting the report to HTML format.
In the HTML export UI, check the option Section 508 Compliant Output. If you only want to convert table/crosstab components into HTML data table in the HTML format report result, check the option Use HTML Data Table.
The above two options are available on all HTML export UIs in Logi JReport.
Logi JReport also supports exporting the report result to an accessible PDF file by enabling the Accessible PDF option which is available on all PDF export UIs in Logi JReportFIX, so that users of screen readers and those who have low vision can have their tagged PDF files read out aloud in appropriate language in the Adobe Acrobat software. The implementation standard is based on Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 (ISO/IEC 40500:2012) http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG/and the PDF/UA (ISO 14289-1) http://www.iso.org/standard/64599.html standard.
Logi JReport Server enables the disabled users to visit the accessible version with simplified functionality to read reports by reader agent or other assistive tools. In the accessible version, reports are displayed in the HTML format with accessibility attributes, and table/crosstab components are output as HTML data tables.
