Accessibility is an elementary concept of the Fabasoft products. Users with visual impairment are supported with entry and visual display.
The Fabasoft Cloud offers full access for users who work with the keyboard instead of the mouse. As you use shortcuts on your operation system, you can use default key operations as for example Ctrl + C in the Fabasoft Cloud. The supported shortcuts can be found in chapter “Keyboard Operations”.
Users who only use the keyboard should define following settings:
When working with the keyboard the focus is highlighted increasingly (e.g. yellow margin). The reinforced highlighting is automatically activated by pressing Tab or Shift + Tab. The first mouse using deactivates the reinforced highlighting again.
You can zoom text and graphics. The layout adapts itself optimally to the size. Use the web browser functionality for this.
Ctrl + Plus (Edge/Firefox/Chrome)
Apple key + Plus (Safari)
Ctrl + Minus (Edge/Firefox/Chrome)
Apple key + Minus (Safari)
Ctrl + 0 (Edge/Firefox/Chrome)
Apple key + 0 (Safari)
