Hi Tony,
Are you going to actually administrat SharePoint itself, or are you going to 
just use it to develop web sites and pages? If the answer is number 2, you 
should not need SharePoint Designer. And I know that Microsoft has improved the 
accessibility of SharePoint 2010 over that of SharePoint 2007, but I don't have 
the experience with 2010 to be able to tell you what they did. You might be 
able to get a Voluntary Accessibility Template document (VPAT) and read it to 
see what Microsoft says is accessible and what isn't. Probably if you google 
for microsoft vpat sharepoint 2010 you would get some hits.

Subject: Microsoft SharePoint Designer 2010


I have been asked by a supervisor whether or not MS SharePoint 2010 as a rapid 
development tool is usable by a blind person using a screen reader.  Before I 
delve to far; I would like to hear any experiences from anyone who has tried 
using this product.  Am I wasting my time?
I tried Googling and only found references about using this tool to make 
resulting web pages more accessible to the users.  I only found 1 hit from a 
developer's point of view where someone was complaining about it's 
Any comments or advice will be appreciated.
