A lot of web applications already use AJAX to give the user the feeling of a desktop application. To make these applications more accessible for people with disabilities, the code can be enriched with WAI-ARIA roles, states and properties. This paper presents a practical case study, where an AJAX-based web application – Fabasoft Folio – has been evaluated and a solution through WAI-ARIA enrichment has been proposed and will be implemented for different widgets used in the application.
