By adopting accessible mashups, we can customize the Qlik dashboard experience by creating new functionality and more intuitive on-screen interactions.
By designing and implementing custom mashups, we can render Qlik Sense functionalities compatible with free/open-source screen readers such as NVDA.
Our software development process follows the worldwide web accessibility standard, the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.1) and W3C.
Rendering a Qlik Sense dashboard accessible provides users precisely with the tools they need to achieve their goals when interacting with a digital interface.
OUR CREATIVE SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT PROCESS
1) User Requirements
We start by understanding user profiles, needs and expectations, detailing features that are not met by the standard Qlik Sense software
2) Design & Prototyping
Implementing the first design iterations – wireframes – and refining the final look, we make sure to keep the tracked accessibility requirements in mind.
3) HTML Implementation
When the design and user mapping streams have been approved, we move on to implementing the mashup using accessible web language based on WCAG 2.1.
4) Software Validation
The final phase involves testing on various platforms, browsers and screen readers, ensuring full cross-platform compatibility.
Case Study: Brazilian Paralympic Committee
We developed a Qlik Sense panel for the Brazilian Paralympic Committee (CPB) using a customized mashup, so that visually impaired people (blindness) could fully navigate a data panel. The usability streams range all the way from filters interactions – wich include multiple possible value selections – up to reading data on analysis objects. The project was developed by Cluster via Qlik Master Reseller Toccato.
