PegaWAI Ruleset, what is it and how can I get it for one of our customers?
I have a Pega Cloud customer who is asking for the PegaWAI ruleset for Pega 7.1.9 and how to import it into their application. I work in the Pega Cloud Ops team, just trying to get them a fast solution to this.
To answer to the What part of the question, PegaWAI ruleset is added to the application to make the application Accessibility friendly. We need to add the ruleset to the production ruleset list of the application rule and check the checkbox Enable Accessibility Add On so that Pega can take care of the accessibility of the application.
1) Initiatives are under way to mandate that disabled users have equal access to Internet resources, including the guidelines issued by the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and, in the United States, the amendments to Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 or the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
3) To enable the PegaWAI ruleset we need to import it into our application.
We then add the ruleset to the Production Ruleset list on our application.
Finally, we add the ruleset to the access groups of developers and users needing accessibility features and controls. On the access group’s Advanced tab, we enter the ruleset in the Production Rulesets list and click the Enable accessibility add-on checkbox.
4) Please refer "DESIGNING ACCESSIBLE APPLICATIONS" lesson in "UI SPECIALIST (7.1)" course for more information
