Use a screen reader to share a roadmap

Use a screen reader to share a roadmap

Read out loud symbol with the label Screen reader content. This topic is about using a screen reader with Office

This article is for people with visual impairments who use a screen reader program with the Office products and is part of the Office Accessibility content set. For more general help, see Office Support home.

Use Project Online with your keyboard and a screen reader to share a roadmap with other users. We have tested it with Narrator, but it might work with other screen readers as long as they follow common accessibility standards and techniques. You can either create a new group of users to share the roadmap to, or share a roadmap with an existing group.

Notes: 

  • New Office 365 features are released gradually to Office 365 subscribers, so your app might not have these features yet. To learn how you can get new features faster, join the Office Insider program.

  • To learn more about screen readers, go to How screen readers work with Microsoft Office.

  • When you use Project Online, we recommend that you use Microsoft Edge as your web browser. Because Project Online runs in your web browser, the keyboard shortcuts are different from those in the desktop program. For example, you’ll use Ctrl+F6 instead of F6 for jumping in and out of the commands. Also, common shortcuts like F1 (Help) and Ctrl+O (Open) apply to the web browser – not Project Online.

Share a roadmap with users

  1. In a roadmap, press Ctrl+F6 until you hear "Roadmap name region," press the Tab key until you hear "See and invite members," and then press Enter. The Members pane opens.

  2. Type the name of the user you want to add to your group and press Enter to add them to the list of group members. You can add multiple people this way.

  3. To name the group of users you have added, press the Tab key until you hear "Group settings, button collapsed," and press Enter. Then press the Tab key until you hear "Group name," and type a name for the group.

  4. To add a description for the group, press the Tab key until you hear "Let people know what this group is about," and type a description for the group.

  5. To change the privacy setting of the group, press the Tab key until you hear "Privacy", and then press the Up or Down arrow key until you hear the setting you want.

  6. To close the Members pane, press the Tab key until you hear "Done button," and press Enter.

Share a roadmap with an existing group

  1. In a roadmap, press Ctrl+F6 until you hear "Roadmap name region," press the Tab key until you hear "See and invite members," and then press Enter. The Members pane opens.

  2. Press Shift+Tab until you hear "Choose an existing group," and press Enter. The list of existing groups you own is displayed.

    Note: The option to choose an existing group is only available if the roadmap has no members already added to it.

  3. Press the Tab key until you hear the first name in the list of groups, press the Down arrow key until you hear the one you want, and then press Enter to share the roadmap with the members of the selected group.

  4. To close the Members pane, press the Tab key until you hear "Done button," and press Enter.
