ACCESSIBILITY CENTER: SCREEN READERS & SETTINGS

Screen Readers

The following two combinations have been tested for use with the EBS Portal and HR or Payroll applications:

  • JAWS screen reader (JAWS testing has historically been done using Internet Explorer but is now being done using Microsoft Edge)
  • NVDA screen reader using Firefox Extended Support Release (ESR)

JAWS is the preferred screen reader. Only Microsoft Edge in "IE Mode" works with HR forms that use the Adobe Interactive technology.
