SharePoint Server supports the accessibility features of supported browsers. For more information, see the following resources:> Plan browser support> Accessibility for SharePoint Products> Accessibility features in SharePoint 2013 Products> Keyboard shortcuts> Touch

Before you begin this operation, review the following information about prerequisites:

  • Read Manage security groups in Project Server.
