Re: Oracle database facilities and screen readers

Hi,
If I understand your problem correctly, what you want is the outcome of a 
select statement to not wrap?  If so, what I do is make a spool file and open 
it in TextPal or TextPad and make sure that wrap is turned off.

Hi,

I have recently tried both Toad and Enterprise Manager and could not get 
around the gui. I have given up for now, but would be delighted to hear from 
anyone who has had more success than I had.

SQLPlus is accessible, but the output from a Select wraps around if the 
result is greater than the width of the screen. Even my sighted work 
colleagues say it is virtually impossible to interpret the output when this 
happens.

If you read the web sites of the makers of all of the above they will say 
that their software is accessible. They even have documents describing their 
VPATs, which are voluntary adherence to accessibility standards. Where is 
the independent verification????



Take Care,
