Re: MS Access

I’m interested in your reaction to that tutorial.


I didn’t elaborate, but my last experience of positive action with a database system was in DOS with SQL. Like you, I found SQL a very comfortable and efficient tool to resolve all my database problems. Unfortunately, the GUI interface and WYZWYG editors threw me out of the database world.


Now, I am very hopeful of returning to it with this new tutorial.


Do you know who this person is that is creating these tutorials?


I have seen two of them so far and am very impressed with the clarity, relation to NVDA usage and proven productivity!



All the best,

I actually need to take the time to go through the tutorials TheeQuinn has put out there just for my own curiosity, but the tiny (and it was very tiny) bit that I picked up from the page and comments suggests that it focuses on the GUI for MS-Access.  And as the first, and only resource that addresses that for screen reader users, all I can say is:  Bravo!

But since I see she's "entered the fray" here, I'm curious to solicit her, and perhaps others', opinions about using MS-Access from the command line and with SQL and data files.

I'm not blind, but when I was first learning RDBMS systems that's truly the only way you accessed them.  That went by the wayside as the primary access method as GUIs developed, but in the case of a screen reader user I often think that using the command line interface with SQL and data files could be much easier, and much less error prone.

Just wondering if anyone is actually going that route, and what they have to say about it.
