Accessibility Improvements in Reports

As Erik hinted, in Access 2007 we will allows a new mode for Reports called "Report Browse". By "mode" imagine something like forms which have a Browse vs. Print Preview mode. This mode allows cut & paste, sorting & filtering and much more.

Of course, this "Report Browse" functionality is very interesting by itself, and by allowing all this form-like interaction with reports, we expose all the MSAA functionality for report data like we do for forms in Browse mode.  This means that all reports in report browse mode will be as accessible as forms.

As an added bonus, if you compare the accessibility for form in Access 2007 vs. Access 2003, you will be positively suprised - there are improvements there as well. I'll talk about that next week.
