You'd be able to do that online just fine, Rick. The only thing online u can't do is have root access, for obvious reasons. Ty mentioned linode& it'd give u that also, but for a price. Drupal sites to some extent are as accessible as the site owners want their site to be. There isn't anything inherent in drupal that makes it inaccessible.

I find many, many with very rough interfaces when using a screen reader and some that you could not tell from a custom website - really nicely laid out. Most of the Government sites were pretty nice and straight forward. If I want to build or modify templates, views and third party modules would I need the PHP development stuff on my local machine or do the Drupal Hosts allow for that level of programming by the nature of Drupal itself? Most of the sites I have looked at that are demos displayed by some of the hosts I have looked at re not very clean with a screen reader. Duplicat links like having a link labeled HOME and then right after the link having a List with one link in the LIst labeled HOME. Of course the Screen reader reads the Home Link then something like List 1 with 1 item and then cursoring down you get the HOME link, the second HOME link, again and then the notification that you are at the end of the list. I notice this type of duplication allot in Drupal sites but not in all of them. This would be the type of thing I would want to get rid of so my sites look like normal, hand coded, websites and not canned webpages. Anyway, Can I make the programming mods necessary online or would I need a local development environment to work with the MySql DB stuff, the PHP and whatever else might be involved. Thanks: Rick USA
