Using a screen readerParent topic: IBM Forms Viewer overview
The Viewer supports screen readers through the MSAA (Microsoft
™ Active Accessibility) standard. Through this standard, the Viewer works with the JAWS screen reader from Freedom Scientific, as well as other MSAA-compliant readers, such as Window-Eyes from GW Micro and Microsoft
Using the enhanced focus indicator
The enhanced focus indicator makes it easier to see which item has the focus by drawing a small, black square near the top-left corner of the item. This enhancement appears in addition to the regular focus indicator, which normally outlines an item or places the cursor inside an item.
Using the operating system colors
You can set the Viewer to use the operating system colors rather than the colors defined by the form itself. This is useful if you have set your operating system colors to provide a higher contrast than normal.
