    Types

    A collection of common prop types used across the VCC ecosystem.

    Charts that leverage these types:

    Default Values

    Default values for all of these types can be found the propDefaultValues file in our utils but are also outlined in the tables below.

    # Accessibility <>

    # IAccessibilityType

    Used by every chart. Specifies a robust set of settings that make VCC data experiences more accessible.

    Description props are used to explain the chart to a user who cannot see it and should be carefully considered early in the design process. In addition, it is always best to provide explanations of the chart's context, purpose, summaries, statistics in visual, textual form for people with cognitive impairment/disability. In cases where this information is provided outside of the chart, it does not need to be provided to these props.

    Note that some of these props are required by chart accessibility validation and will throw warnings until the default values are changed (such as elementsAreInterface). The prop for disableValidation should be set to true before an application's production build and deployment process but only if the chart is considered accessible (validation can slow down the chart's lifecycle performance significantly).

    Name (accessibility.) Type Default Value(s) Description
    longDescription string '' Use this to add a helpful description of the chart.
    executiveSummary string '' Use this to describe the biggest takeaway of the chart.
    purpose string '' Use this to describe the purpose of this particular chart.
    contextExplanation string '' Use this to explain any controls or content on your page that affect or are affected by this chart.
    title string '' Gives the chart an alternate title to be used by screen readers.
    elementDescriptionAccessor string '' Optional key used to add an additional description to any element, from your data.
    statisticalNotes string '' Use this to provide any statistical explanations, such as trends, clusters, patterns, or outliers.
    structureNotes string '' Use this to describe special visual features of the chart, such as sorting, color grouping, etc.
    includeDataKeyNames boolean false If true, includes data key names in voice over description of each element. EG "Year over year growth: 5.6%" instead of just "5.6%"
    hideDataTableButton boolean false If true, hides the data table button (but it is still available to screen reader users).
    disableValidation boolean false If true, disables validations of accessibility props for this chart. Validation is intended to be used during development; upon completion, validation should be disabled.
    elementsAreInterface any/boolean null Defaults to null. Set to true if interacting with the elements in this chart affects your application. Otherwise, must be set to false.
    onChangeFunc function undefined Custom event listener (changeFunc) that enables dev to control accessibility page experience when chart data updates.
    showSmallLabels boolean false Defaults to false. Set to true if you would like to display labels on small elements that are likely to overlap. Note, this could impact accessibility of your graphic.
    hideStrokes boolean false Defaults to false. Set to true if you would like to remove automated stroke outlines from the chart, note, this could impact accessibility of your graphic.
    hideTextures boolean false Defaults to false. Set to true if you would like to remove textures from the chart, note, this could impact accessibility of your graphic.
    keyboardNavConfig IKeyConfig { disabled: false } Defaults disabled to false. May be set to true if accessibility.elementsAreInterface = false and suppressEvents = true. This will disable keyboard navigation and simplify chart instructions for screen reader users.
    showExperimentalTextures boolean false Defaults to false. Set to true if you would like leverage our textures which are still undergoing research and development.
