Titles in Omni search results may be difficult to understand with some JAWS versions

Service Area(s): Access to Online Resources

Disruption Time: Friday, December 9, 9:18am (ongoing)


For JAWS screen reader users, the search results in Omni may inject extra words (e.g., mark, end mark) around search keywords matched in the title.  This can make it difficult to evaluate the title.  We have notified the vendor.


Some workarounds have been identified and are described in more detail.

For longer term solutions, we have reached out to the makers of JAWS and the makers of Omni.



Search keywords are tagged using an HTML tag that causes JAWS to say mark/end mark in certain situations.
