Hello All,

I just had an interesting problem come up, regarding the accessibility of sharepoint sites. I've
never used it or seen it, but our school uses it on various domains. Am I right in my assumption
that any "access" issues are really going to be your basic web-acessibility checks?

Another person has chimed in, and suspects the problem might be due to credentials, since the user
might be trying to access a sharepoint site outside of their domain, which has its OWN sharepoint
site. I don't think that's an accessibility issue, more of a network problem.

Anything we should really know or watch out for, regarding sharepoint?

Does anyone have experience to help us resolve this particular situation? The user is blind, and
uses a software package designed to "read" the websites. There seems to be an issue related to
accessing the Sharepoint site. Here's the user's description:

>It wants to try to log me on before I actually have a chance to type in

>my password, so I get an error. I finally got in and tried to open a

>link to a document and it made all the right noises, but left me at the

>home site.
