Hi NJ,

I don't have firsthand experience using PeopleSoft with an alternative input
technology, but for what it's worth Oracle does provide PeopleSoft VPATs:


The VPAT for versions 8.8.0-8.9.x is more informative than the one for
9.0x, but maybe that suggests the more recent version has fixed all the
accessibility problems from previous versions?

Dear ATHENites,

I know that you are all trying to wind down for the upcoming break - much
needed for us all - but I have a question regarding PeopleSoft. Our
counseling department has a candidate who they are highly interested in
hiring but are worried that PeopleSoft will not be accessible to this person
should they hire him/her. The question comes because this person has
extremely limited use of upper body/hands and normally uses voice-activation
to accomplish most computer related tasks. My first thought was Dragon
NaturallySpeaking. I have tried to use Dragon NaturallySpeaking with
PeopleSoft and have been unsuccessful from my trials. My second thought is
some type of Headmouse, puff/sip, onscreen keyboard or other stick device.
Have any of you had any experiences with PeopleSoft and limited mobility? If
so, what devices have you used or suggested? Thank you for your help! And,
Merry Christmas and a Better New Year!
