Web standards are about much more than closing HTML tags. They are a critical factor in how well software components can be used in future contexts.

The Web Storage System (WSS) in Exchange 2000 is a Web-accessible database that stores any type of data such as e-mail, contacts, appointments, threaded discussions, and multimedia files, and renders the data in HTML in any browser. WSS is based on Internet standards, therefore data can be accessed through URLs, an Exchange OLE DB provider, drive mapping, XML, and Web Documenting and Versioning (WebDAV). This article discusses the WSS schema and how to extend the default schema for custom data. A sample application that uses a custom schema and a custom form to display WSS data is available for download.

Active Accessibility was developed to allow people with disabilities to work on PCs-it's used in magnifiers, screen readers, and tactile mice. It can also be used to create applications that drive other software, and its ability to emulate user input is particularly well suited to the design of testing software. Starting from the basics of Active Accessibility, this article leads you through the development of a software testing application. You'll see how this testing application interacts with common controls and other UI elements, then processes the resulting WinEvents.

We have a SharePoint farm consisting of 5 web applications. These are tied together through branding and a custom sitemapprovider which present the farm as a single environment to end users. Our visually disabled users however have to enable
the accessibility mode for each web application. Which is a nuisance, ideally they would only have to enable once for the complete farm. Does anybody have a solution for this problem.
ÃÂ Is there a list of accessibility acts that SharePoint 2007 supports.ÃÂ For example the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005?
Hey, guys! I'm building a web site for a Section 508 workgroup, and I need the site to be 100% accessible (including the administration module I'm making for the team. We're using SharePoint MOSS 2007 and I recommended using infopath to enter data into the site's database (and also to populate downloadable Microsoft Word documents). The customer claimed that InfoPath is not Section 508 compliant, which seemed odd to me because the forms can be modified to anything you want them to be (including 508 compliant).I even found this guide to making InfoPath accessible:http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/infopath/HA102146831033.aspxI'm curious if there are any caveats to making accessible forms in Infopath, or if the information I've gathered is incorrect.Thanks!Spaz
I am somewhat new to things related to accessibility in SharePoint. I am trying to work on section 508 accessibility requirements for SharePoint site. I have tried to see few articles from the internet and still looking for more information on the subject matter including what to consider fro preparing requirement. ÃÂ
I am looking to know what is possible and what is not with SharePoint?
How to achieve all the possible accessibilities in SharePoint?
Is it possible to make accessible all site types (Publishing, team sites,.)?
Please help me in understanding everything around SharePoint accessibility and first in preparing the requirement document. I have tried to see AKS site but there were some issues that are not clear for me at this level.
Thank you in advance,
On a current project I am working on we are suggesting that the mobile access (via /m) provides users with access to the system that due to the simple rendering should support screen readers and accessibility devices.
Is this acceptable?ÃÂ ÃÂ ÃÂ Is this a valid place to look at the provision of an accessible entry into MOSS/WSS?
Something to start with...ÃÂ
I have posted an article on MOSS accessibility with specific regards to the the WCAG 1.0 standards.ÃÂ Hope this helps in your search for solving your accessibility requirements.

I am faced with the infamous exception "Inheritance security rules violated while overriding member : Security accessibility of the overriding method must match the security accessibility of the method being overriden" exception in my project. I think I
understand security transparency level 2 and when this message is supposed to occur, and what is necessary to fix the problem. However, as far as I know, the problem should not occur here because the security attributes of the overriden method does match the
ones from the base method.
Indeed, I have a class inheriting MarshalByRefObject and overriding InitializeLifetimeService. This is the method triggering the exception but it is correctly annotated with the SecurityCriticalAttribute to match the base method's security accessibility.
public abstract class DisposableMarshalByRefObject : MarshalByRefObject, IDisposable
public override object InitializeLifetimeService()
I have two projects : a class library where DispposableMarshalByRefObject is declared and a console application for testing purposes. The console application i
