Accessibility with QLIK Sense

We are committed to delivering the best data analysis experience. For everyone.

Accessible Mashups

By adopting accessible mashups, we can customize the Qlik dashboard experience by creating new functionality and more intuitive on-screen interactions.

Screen Readers

By designing and implementing custom mashups, we can render Qlik Sense functionalities compatible with free/open-source screen readers such as NVDA.

WCAG 2.1

Our software development process follows the worldwide web accessibility standard, the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.1) and W3C.

User research

Rendering a Qlik Sense dashboard accessible provides users precisely with the tools they need to achieve their goals when interacting with a digital interface.


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.
