    I have a person with a vision disability on my team and would like to know if she can use Clarity easily for reporting. Also, please let me know if Zoomtext software is compatible with Clarity 13.0.1

    Hi siddyi91

     

     

    CA Technologies is committed to ensuring all customers can successfully use its products and supporting documentation to accomplish business tasks. Enable the accessibility mode to optimize contrast in the user interface and assist a screen reader for those users who need assistance.

     

    CA Clarity PPM accessibility features are best when used with the Mozilla Firefox 13 browser and the Job Access With Speech (JAWS) screen reader.

     

    CA Clarity PPM inherits accessibility enhancements from Windows-based and Macintosh-based environments in the following areas:

     

    1. Display
    2. Sound
    3. Keyboard
    4. Mouse

     

    Note:

     

     

    The information in the following topics applies to Windows-based and Macintosh-based applications. Java applications run on many host operating systems, some of which already have assistive technologies available to them. For these existing assistive technologies to provide access to programs written in JPL, they need a bridge between themselves in their native environments and the Java Accessibility support that is available from within the Java Virtual Machine (Java VM). This bridge has one end in the Java VM and the other on the native operating systems, so it will be slightly different for each platform it bridges to. Oracle is currently developing both the JPL and the Win32 sides of this bridge.

     

     

     

    Set Up Accessibility for a User :

     

    Use these steps to set up accessibility for a user.

     

    Follow these steps:

     

    1. Open Administration, and from Organization and Access, click Resources.

     

    2. Click the name of the resource.

     

    The properties page appears.

     

    3. Select the appropriate Accessibility check boxes:

     

    Screen Reader Optimized UI

     

    Determines whether the user interface is optimized so that a screen reader can better recognize the features. Select this check box for any visually impaired user who is using a screen reader.

      Default : Cleared

     

    High Contrast Color Mode

     

    Determines whether a specific UI theme to assist color-deficient users is used. If selected, the user sees the High Contrast UI theme.

      Default: Cleared

     

     

    4. Save your changes.

     

    5. (Optional) If you selected the Screen Reader Optimized UI, verify that the screen reader software is running on the user's computer.

     

    6. If the user is logged in to CA Clarity PPM, instruct the user to log out and log back in.

     

    I hope this helps.
