Subject: Re: [nvda] Microsoft Access Databases
It's probably not your decision, and I don't know how much influence you have over the process, but just for general reference, if this database is going to be used by multiple people simultaneously, Microsoft Access is *not* the program to be used for this,
since it doesn't do well with such usage. Of course, if it's just something that will be posted for others to grab a copy when needed, then that doesn't apply, and the use is just fine, but just be aware of that before trying to build a whole subdepartment
on such a system, it won't go well.

Some other results come up if you omit "screen readers" as part of the search, but many of them don't apply.
