Accessibility Testing Results
EndNote works with NVDA and JAWS 11 for most of the program. Keyboard access is through the menu system and the icons are easy for sighted users. The documentation is very comprehensive but may be challenging for novice users.
|16||Built in accessibility checks||The program has a VPAT http://www.endnote.com/support/helpdocs/EndNoteX3-Accessibility-VPAT.pdf that says that it works with assistive technologies and built in accessibility checks. The testing showed it worked with high contrast mode and built in magnification but not built in speech on Windows.|
