E-508: Custom Banner Landmark Description Is Not Clear When Using NVDA For Accessibility Issues (Doc ID 2819405.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 04, 2021

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise PT PeopleTools - Version 8.58 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When using NVDA, the custom banner says Side Banner which doesn't accurately reflect the banner. It is desired to change this to read Branding Banner or Brand Banner to distinguish between the two 
banners to be in compliance with 508 per the CT.

1. Followed the instructions on how to add custom Headers: E-Portal: How to Add UserName And DB Name In Banner For Fluid Head ( Doc ID 2688774.1 ) (Administering System Branding ->
Configuring a Custom Banner)

2. Used NVDA to test after setting the Screen Reader Mode on.
3. Shift D repeated the landmark information.

Changing Alt Text does not impact what is read by Screen Reader.
