We are using jqGrid 4.4.4 and this version of JQGrid is not accessibility compliant(Section 508 Compliant) . Please let us know if there is any updated version of JQGrid available that have accessibility features incorporated.
For example , following accessibility features:
1. Table headers should be sortable using keyboard.
2. Table pagination controls should be accessible using keyboard.
3. Table is accessible using Screen readers like “Narrator”, “Jaws” .
If you have an updated version , would be great if you can share the link to download the trial version.
Are there any specific dates that your team is planning to have next release in March 2019 and for the Beta release as well. Would be great if you can share , this will help us to plan our work better.
<span>Thanks Will for sharing the details. The new version looks great. Keyboard accessibility is in place now.
I was trying to run screen reader: Narrator observed that it is not working and the documentation you shared does not speak anything about the screen reader compatibility of this component.
Can you please provide some insight how a screen reader dependent user will use this grid ?</span>
