Summary

ERP systems present obstacles to accessibility. GreyHeller, in partnership with the University of Minnesota, has tackled the most rigorous problems in making PeopleSoft's Campus Solutions, HCM and Financial systems fully compliant. This deep dive demo session will show how your institution can make PeopleSoft accessibile.

Abstract

PeopleSoft does not display data such that people using adaptive technologies (i.e. screen readers, speech recognition) can effectively access that data. GreyHeller, working closely with our customer the University of Minnesota, leveraged our PeopleMobile® for Accessibility platform to make the University's PeopleSoft Student, HR and Financial systems fully WCAG 2.0 AA compliant for access to self-service applications by students, faculty and staff. This session will include deep dive demonstration and project specifics with the goal of helping attendees understand how they can support PeopleSoft accessibility initiatives at their respective institutions.
