Enabling Accessibility Features to Support Assistive Technology

To enable accessibility features to support assistive technology for your user ID:

  1. Select select My Personalizations in the main menu.

    The Personalizations page appears.

  2. Click the Personalize General Options link.

    The Option Category: General Options page appears.

  3. Select one of the following options from the Accessibility Features drop-down list:

    Accessibility features off

    Select this option to disable accessibility features.

    Use accessible layout mode

    Select this option to enable all of the accessibility features that are available, including the feature that presents the page in a linear format.

    See Accessibility in PeopleSoft Applications.

    This option is designed for blind users who use assistive technology, such as screen readers.

    Use standard layout mode

    Select this option to enable accessibility features if you want support for visibility impairment (for example, if you use a screen magnifier), but do not rely solely on a screen reader.

    This mode provides bold highlighting of page elements to indicate where you are on a page, but it does not alter the page layout or provide full accessibility features for screen readers. For example, this mode does not provide table summaries and column headings for every table column.

  4. Click OK to save your changes.

  5. Sign out of the system and sign in again to display the accessibility features on the page.
