Apia Documentum added a specific profile for employees with visual disabilities
Within the framework of a migration process of Apia Documentum for the National Housing Agency (ANV), STATUM developed a specific profile for officials with visual disabilities that allows its use in a more adequate way and that, in addition, can respond to the needs in other organisms.
The process began in October 2020 and culminated in a successful migration with a new component: a new version of the tool aimed at blind users.
Belén García, from the ANV's Planning, Structure and Organization department, said in this regard: “The specific profile for employees with visual disabilities facilitates and makes ApiaDocumentum's functionalities more flexible. It also helps the screen reading program to work correctly, since it is necessary to combine two programs simultaneously: screen reading plus Electronic File system ”.
The project provided training and assistance to two ANV officials.
Sebastián Sequeira, referring to the migration of Apia Documentum for the ANV, commented that, in order to achieve the objective of “greater accessibility” to the workers, the tool that was used as a screen reader that had some incidents had to be investigated. The objective was to "generate the best configuration" by removing what was not compatible with the new use of the system.
García added: “At the moment, the colleague who has the provisional reader installed is receiving the support of the colleagues who were trained as facilitators in the implementation of the new Apia 3.0. I estimate that once everything is resolved and colleagues are more familiar with the new system's functionalities, it will be possible to give the tool greater and better use”.
