ADD: WAI ARIA support for RadButton

Posted on: 27 Aug 2015 13:19
Hi Mary,

The accessibility story and all occurring problems are our top priorities during the period between Q3 2015 and Q1 2016. 

In Q3 2015 (this September), we will provide WAI-ARIA support in RadTabStrip, while in Q1 2016 WAI-ARIA will be introduced in the Button and the AutoCompleteBox.

If you experience any other problems, please report them here so that we can evaluate and fix them.

Best regards,
Product Manager

We are Extremely disappointed that Telerik advertised ARIA support for its ASP.Net controls and come to find out that is not the complete truth.  We have found that most of the aria enabled controls do not tab or screen read correctly.  We can't even get a radio button to say 'checked'?  Waste of our time, now we have to rewrite our js weeks before go-live.

if you go to the deque site and read the NVDA, JAWS, and VOICEOver  reference guides, I would expect aria behaviors to follow those command behaviors.   Up and down arrows should cycle through the radio (toggle) buttons and a spacebar select should read 'selected' or 'checked'.
