Lotus Notes and AccessibilityI gather that Lotus Notes uses a non-windows
standard cursor which "behaves" differently to the Windows cursor and some
screen readers (like Jaws?) can't see it very well, which makes Lotus Notus
difficult to use.

  Subject: Lotus Notes and Accessibility

  Hello to all.
  Does anyone know about the accessibility of Lotus Notes? I have found some
information on the IBM website, but that is about all. Has anyone got any
first-hand information on what it is like to use Lotus Notes with a screen
reader (as an email programme and as a database)?

  Thanks, I would really appreciate some help on this one. To provide some
background, the Lotus Notes database will be used to hold information that
can then be delivered to a Web page, almost like a content management
system. However, if it is not accessible, then what are the alternatives.

  Cheers one and all
