Of course, I do develop custom user interface components for many customers, but that is not always desirable. Therefore I sometimes re-purpose standard Visio elements to provide the ability to view or edit multi-line text in Shape Data rows. I needed to display the week number of dates in a Visio project of mine, but there is no WeekNum … function built-in, so I had to write one, and allow for the date that the week numbers begin in to be varied from 1st January.

I also needed to allow for the week numbers to go backwards from the specified week number begin date. Excel has a WeekNum.. I have been running my Visio consultancy for over 20 years now, and I have created Visio solutions for many organisations, big and small, across many countries. Most of them know that Visio can do much more than they know how to do, but they do not know how it can be done.
I usually do a short demo to explain where the smartness in Visio comes from, so I thought I would share a little bit of this knowledge with a couple of videos that, I think, show why Visio is so smart! One of the ways that Visio supports accessibility is to provide text that is read out by a screen reader, such as Windows Narrator or JAWS.

The Title is the initial text that is read out when a shape is attentioned, and the Description will only read out if the user pauses. The Description text box only allows characters to be entered and displayed, but this is not actually the limit! Visio defaults to tabbing from shape to shape in the order that the shapes are added to the page.
However, this can end up with an illogical order if you are trying to navigate a diagram with the keyboard, which is often an accessibility requirement. Fortunately, Visio provides a Diagram Navigation pane so that the tab order can be changed, but how does it do it? The following short video shows how the navigation order, displayed as numbers in each shape, is assigned a value as soon as the order is edited. Every so often too often in the IT industry I encounter things that should have been very easy to do but turned out to be far too complicated. My favorite topics include SharePoint,.
Net development, and software architecture, especially distributed systems. Posted in Visio , Visio Online. Tags: Accessibility , Visio , Visio Online.
