Use Project Online with your keyboard and screen reader to explore and navigate the screen elements in a 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.
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.
Navigate a roadmap
To cycle through the main elements of a roadmap, press Ctrl+F6 (forward) or Shift+Ctrl+F6 (backward).
The focus moves through the following main elements:
The top navigation toolbar, which contains the app launcher, Office 365 and user settings buttons.
The roadmap name row, which includes the Zoom, Filter, Go to date, and Members buttons.
The command toolbar, which includes the Add row and Add key date buttons, as well as context-specific buttons relating to the currently selected item in the roadmap.
The contents of the roadmap in a table format.
To navigate inside a toolbar or the name row, press the Tab key (forward) or Shift+Tab (backward). To select an item inside an element, press Enter.
To navigate the roadmap contents, press the Tab key or Shift+Tab to move through the regions of the table. To select a table region, press Enter or Spacebar, and to move between the items in a selected region, press the Left or Right arrow keys. To select an item, press Enter.
