Accessibility portlets - display personalization

Introduction #

This article describes how to install, configure and use the accessibility portlet and the accessibility theme.

Features #

  • Unauthenticated user (guest)
  • User can define his display preferences (font size and color, background, navigation position)
  • Filter portlets and journal articles (by templateid or articleid)

Install, configure #

We've created a sourceforge project for Liferay wai plugins : http://sourceforge.net/projects/liferaywai/ You can get accessibility's plugins (theme and portlet) from the community plugins repository or directly from sourceforge.

Porltet : http://www.liferay.com/downloads/liferay-portal/community-plugins/-/software_catalog/products/6653303(compatibility :liferay 6.0.5 +)

Theme : http://www.liferay.com/downloads/liferay-portal/community-plugins/-/software_catalog/products/6653591 (compatibility :liferay 6.0.5 +)

You need to install both portlet and theme (required-deployment-contexts) to have it work.

You can configure the portlet to filter specific porltets or journal articles:


If you want to not display "Hello world" and "Hello velocity" portlets you have to add : Portlets to filter : 47,50

If you want to not display specific templates you have to add : Web content templates to filter : template-name-1,template-name-2

If you want to not display specific articles you have to add : Web contents to filter (article id): 12782,12783

This looks really good. I did some work with W3C WAI back in my Sun days and I know how hard it is to "get right" when trying to retrofit non-accessible software. Looks great!
