Use a screen reader to create a roadmap in Project Online

Use a screen reader to create a roadmap in Project Online

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 create a new roadmap. We have tested it with Narrator, but it might work with other screen readers as long as they follow common accessibility standards and techniques.

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.

Open Project Online and create a roadmap

  1. In your web browser go to portal.office.com or login.microsoftonline.com and sign in to your Office 365 account.

    Note: To learn more on how to sign in to Project Online, refer to Sign in to Project Online.

  2. To open the Project Online app, press the Tab key until you hear “Project link,” and then press Enter. Project opens on the Project Home page.

  3. To create a roadmap, in the Project Home page, press the Tab key until you hear "Create new button," and then press Enter. The Create New dropdown menu opens, and you hear: "Roadmap, menu item." Press Enter to create a new roadmap. The focus changes to the newly created roadmap.

    Note: If you do not hear "Roadmap" in the Create New menu, you may not have the right license to use Roadmap, or your admin needs to enable it. To learn more, see Why can't I see Roadmap in Project Home?

  4. To name the newly created roadmap, press Shift+Ctrl+F6 until you hear "Roadmap name region," press the Tab key until you hear "Untitled roadmap," and then press Enter. The Row details pane is opened.

  5. Type a name for your roadmap. When you are done, press Shift+Tab until you hear "Close pane button," and then press Enter to close the Row details pane.
