My Personalizations” lets users switch to a layout that better accommodates visually impaired users and assistive technologies, such as screen readers and magnifiers.

  • If users do not need assistive technologies, you can ignore the “My Personalizations” menu option
  • The “My Personalizations” options under ’General Options: Accessible Features’ allows a choice that rearranges the content to a linear format, enhancing field focus, rearranging table layouts and offers simpler navigation to better accommodate assistive technologies for the visually impaired. The options are:
    • Use accessible mode layout - This option is for use with screen readers. Page elements (fields, links, buttons, etc.) are presented linearly to assistive software
    • Use standard mode layout - This option supports assistive technologies without altering the page design
