Accessibility of the web-based features

The Visual Paradigm product family has two client products: Visual Paradigm ("VP Desktop") and Visual Paradigm Online ("VP Online"). Visual Paradigm is a traditional desktop application that can be downloaded and run in your operating system, while Visual Paradigm Online is a modern zero-configuration service that runs on a web browser.

Although the two products are fundamentally different, they are related in a way that some of the VP Desktop features rely on the web technologies provided by VP Online in order to function.
