Introduction

This guide describes the accessibility features of Oracle Hyperion Shared Services Console.

Oracle customers have access to electronic support through My Oracle Support. For information, visit http://www.oracle.com/pls/topic/lookup?ctx=acc&id=info or visit http://www.oracle.com/pls/topic/lookup?ctx=acc&id=trs if you are hearing impaired.

For information about Oracle's commitment to accessibility, visit the Oracle Accessibility Program website at http://www.oracle.com/pls/topic/lookup?ctx=acc&id=docacc.

Enabling Accessibility for Shared Services Console

Viewing Shared Services Console in Accessible Mode

To view Shared Services Console in accessible mode, append accessibilityMode=true to the Oracle Hyperion Shared Services URL; for example, http://Web_server_name:port_number/interop/index.jsp?accessibilityMode=true.

If launching Shared Services Console from Oracle Hyperion Enterprise Performance Management Workspace, enable the accessibility mode in the Oracle Hyperion Enterprise Performance Management Workspace user preferences.

To view Shared Services Console with high contrast, append themeSelection=BpmTadpoleHc to Shared Services URL, for example, http://Web_server_name:port_number/interop/index.jsp? themeSelection=BpmTadpoleHc.

Using JAWS Screen Reading Software

If you are using JAWS® Screen Reading Software, Oracle recommends using the Internet Explorer browser.

For JAWS to read the content of some editable text fields within Shared Services Console, enable the Virtual PC Cursor mode. The following procedures provide two methods for enabling the JAWS Virtual PC Cursor mode.

Note:

These procedures apply if you are viewing Shared Services Console in an accessible mode (by appending accessibilityMode=true to the Oracle Hyperion Shared Services URL).

  To enable the Virtual PC Cursor in JAWS Configuration Manager:

  1. From the JAWS Utilities menu, select Configuration Manager.

  2. From the Set Options menu, select Advanced Options.

  3. Select Use Virtual PC Cursor.

  4. Click OK.

  To toggle between enabling or disabling the JAWS Virtual PC Cursor using a keyboard shortcut, press the plus (+) key on the numeric key pad.

Caution!

The other Shared Services Console components will not work while in Virtual PC Cursor mode (for example, users will not be able to traverse the provisioning tree). To work with other components, you must disable the Virtual PC Cursor mode after reading the text field content. Therefore, Oracle recommends using the keyboard equivalents method to toggle between enabling and disabling the Virtual PC Cursor mode.

Shared Services Console Accessibility Features

  • Screens used to create and modify the following artifacts do not support high contrast mode.

    • Users

    • Groups

    • Roles

    • Delegated Lists

  • JAWS Screen Reading Software reads only the title and first paragraph of each help topic. All text that comes after the first paragraph is skipped.

This section describes the keyboard equivalents for the following:

  • Interface components

  • Menu items

  • Tasks completed in Shared Services Console

When you use keyboard equivalents, keep in mind the following:

  • The underlined letter that typically appears in a menu title, menu item, or the text of a button or other component is called a mnemonic. Because Oracle considers mnemonics to be “self-documenting,” no additional documentation of these keys is provided. However, it is important to note that some mnemonics are repeated. For example, on the File menu, the underlined mnemonic D is used for both the Delete menu item and the Deactivate menu item. When this occurs, the first time you press D, highlights the item to be deleted. Press Enter to Delete or press D again to highlight the Deactivate button, and then press Enter to Deactivate.

  • If you are using a version of the Firefox browser later than release 1.5, substitute Alt+Shift for Alt as the modifier.
