Hello Scott,

If you are merely looking for a place where files could be dropped and
retrieved by others, then try http://www.drop.io The site has some isues but
is generally very accessible. I've used the site for more than a year to
share files.

If you are looking for a site such as Google Docs that will allow you to
edit documents online, then I'm afraid you are les likely to find a good
solution. I have found Google Docs to be more usable WithFirefox 3.5 RC or
beta than in IE. Google has begun to add ARIA to its services.

Hi All,

I had an inquiry yesterday from our local blind/low vision center asking if
there is a file sharing program (preferably free) that is screen reader
accessible. Has anyone come across such a program?

They tried Google Docs, but ran into accessibility problems.

Thanks in advance,


Sonoma State University
