Modify Analysis Settings

Below Analysis scope definitions are sections that allow you to view and modify the settings used by FireEyes during analysis: Accessibility, Quality (optional), and Event tracking.

Analysis options section of the Settings tab

Expanding the tree menus in each of these sections, you can view the settings being applied.

If the selection box next to a standard or setting has a checkmark in it, all elements in the expandable menu for that standard have been checked. If the box is filled in with a green square, only some of the items in the menu have been checked. If the checkbox is blank, that item and any sub-items have been deselected completely.

The default analysis settings built into FireEyes and WorldSpace are sufficient for many users; however, the default analysis options can be modified either here in the Settings tab or in the WorldSpace Project. As noted above, WorldSpace Enterprise Edition users may find that their Project Administrator has disabled the ability to modify analysis options in FireEyes. In this case the note "read-only due to project configuration in WorldSpace Sync" will appear next to the each section title.

Notes:

  1. WorldSpace Enterprise Edition users may find that their Project Administrator has disabled the ability to modify analysis options in FireEyes. In this case the note "read-only due to project configuration in WorldSpace Sync" will appear next to the Accessibility and Quality section titles.
  2. If you modify any of the settings described below and want to return to the WorldSpace Project settings, select the Load settings from WorldSpace button in the Settings tab toolbar.

Accessibility Analysis Options

Accessibility analysis settings consist of:

  • Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0
  • Section 508
  • Analyze Flash Content
  • Analyze PDF Content
  • Analyze Mobile Content
  • Dynamic Analysis Settings

You can further expand the WCAG, Section 508, or Mobile menu items and toggle on or off options to choose which standards FireEyes will test against.

Dynamic Analysis Settings are special options that were created for handling rich Internet applications. Specifically, these are special options meant to address accessibility issues with client side scripting and adherence to WAI-ARIA specifications. Although they address industry standards, they are not necessarily violations that are included in existing WCAG or Section 508 standards.

Accessibility Standards options section of the Settings tab

Quality Analysis Options

Users who are Members of a WorldSpace Enterprise Edition instance that includes the Quality practice in addition to the Accessibility practice may see the Quality settings menu.

The Quality analysis settings consist of multiple website quality checks. Many of the settings allow you to set additional parameters to finely control the analysis settings.

Event Tracking Options

The Event tracking options menu allows you to specify which events will be recorded when creating a FireEyes script. For example, while mouse click events are recorded by default, mouse motion events are not recorded by default. You will need to modify the Mouse motion event options if you need to record mouse actions to evaluate the accessibility of mouse-related events, such as menus that appear on mouse hover, etc.

Event tracking option categories include mouse, keyboard, focal and other events such as scroll, resize, reset and change.
