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.

Jim,

           There are reams of material out there about designing virtually any type of Microsoft Office document/database/spreadsheet in a way that is maximally accessible to screen reader users.  Start poring through the results from:  https://duckduckgo.com/?q=MS+Access+accessibility+%22screen+readers%22

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