    maybe my lack of looking, but should look (anyone that can point out good sites for "Handi-Able" capabilities?

    I hear it all the time, but never really saw results as the user would see them (even something as simple as font size or color) 2 of which I know I have users that have problems in these areas, and no clue how to help, when I figure its just a matter of displaying a lil bit different capability

    Thanks. I don't know anything about COM but that tells me where to start looking.

    Making controls accessable to screen readers

    Someone was telling me that in Visual Studio there's some attribute called Accessable_Name that can be applied to a control to make it easier for the blind to use it with their screen readers. I'm not sure I said that quite right but I think that was pretty close to what I was told.

    Anyway, does anyone know if there's something I can do with a button or other control that might be comparable to that? I do know I can use tab order and shortcut keys to help but I think that Accessable_Name thing might give them some additional text or something.

    Any ideas on how that might be done in PB 9?

    Thanks,
    Barry
