My friend did not say it could not be done. What they said was that it did not look like a site that was going to work well with Jaws and gave reasons why. It is interesting that people on this list are quick to criticize the fact that I called in a sighted person to see if they could help me see something to do different. But, not one person has offered even one suggestion of how I could improve my skills and learn how to navigate such a site. I’m even being criticized for doing what I could to resolve my own problem before searching out this list, subscribing, waiting to be approved, and asking the members for help.

Most sighted people don't, but there are a few who do. I'm usually leary when someone says something ca't be done, unless I know they are trained in accessibility or are very familiar with JAWs.
Mr. Damery is one such individual.

If he is familiar with the screen reader used by the blind individual: As is Eric Damery: He could well know whether a site accommodates screen readers. Or at least the one with which he is familiar.

How would a sighted person know if something is doable with a screenreader?

Subject: Walmart.com and Jaws
I want to explore the possibility of ordering groceries from Walmart.com. I have the latest version of Jaws and a sighted friend says it doesnt look doable with a screen reader to them. Is anyone using the regular part of Walmart.com or the grocery.walmart.com section with positive results? When I tried to navigate the sight, there did not seem to be any rhyme or reason to things but Im told visually it is laid out very clearly. Also, when I tried to search Google for any tips, I got nowhere.
