Screen Readers

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

  • Internet Explorer on Windows, using the JAWS screen reader
  • Firefox Extended Support Release (ESR), using the NVDA screen reader

Internet Explorer with JAWS is the preferred combination. Only Internet Explorer works with HR forms that use the Adobe Interactive technology.
