Re: Jaws and Microsoft Access

Yes, there is practically no material available for developing apps in Access (or any VBA based).

I'm using common windows controls and appears the properties need to be modified for JAWS. Some examples of issues Im having are:
- a password Textbox field, JAWS echoes the characters typed in and not asterisk
- radio buttons (in an Option Group) when checked, JAWS reads as Not-checked (and vice-versa)
- cannot Tab to the heading of a Tab control

Anyone else gone down this road?

I have often wondered myself why there is not more JAWS information on Access. It is like Access just fell by the wayside.

Hi ,
Is there any documentation or sample code out there for making MS Access applications 508 compliant and/or readable with JAWS ?
