Symptoms

HRMS 9.0 Bundle 22 Tools 8.51

Currently when the cursor is on a searchable field on the Timesheet, like the magnifying glass lookup the screen reader (JAWS) says to use Alt+5. This is confusing for the visually impaired user. Alt+5 does work on the edit box for the field, but that is not where the user is directed to use it. The instructions to use Alt+5 should be moved to the edit box for the field before the magnifying glass lookup, or the Alt+5 functionality be moved to the magnifying glass lookup to agree with the directions.

Expected Behavior:
The screen reader should inform the users that there is a prompt available and to use Alt+5 while the cursor is in the edit box of the field prior to navigating to the prompt icon (magnifying glass).

Steps to Recreate:
1. Set Accessibility Features to Use Accessible Layout Mode under My Personalizations.
2. Log out and back in.
3. Navigate to Employee Self Service >Time Reporting > Report Time> Timesheet:
4. On row 1 in the timesheet Tab to the first searchable field on the timesheet. In this case it is Taskgroup field.
5. Press Alt + 5 to access lookup page.
6. Review Results. This works as it should even though the reader does not inform the users there is a prompt available.
7. Tab to the magnifying glass next to this Taskgroup field on the timesheet.
8. Press Alt + 5 to access lookup page.
9. Review Results. This does not work even though the reader informs the users there is a prompt available.

Business Impact:
Visually impaired user is confused and by the instructions on the correct field to be used to access lookup page.
