Using Assistive Technology
These products achieve accessibility in various ways, such as audibly reading text that appears on the screen.
Depending on your assistive software program, there may be some settings that you must make to work properly in TeamConnect. For example, in JAWS, you must select the Use Virtual Labels in Forms Mode option on the HTML Options screen.
Make sure that you set all of the appropriate options in your assistive software application. For details on setting HTML options, refer to your assistive software program documentation.
Currently, TeamConnect supports JAWS® 11 or later.
