Description: Discover Access for SharePoint Farm Solution provides disability access by rendering accessible and usable views of existing SharePoint sites while maintaining access, permissions, and providing similar user functionality. In order to accomplish this, the visual SharePoint navigation items have been simplified for ease of use. Discover Access allows users to go in and out of accessibility mode. If enabled by an administer, the mode stores a value in the user`s profile so they do not have to turn it on each time they use SharePoint.

This technology can make updates to SharePoint which utilizes a Microsoft Structured Query Language (SQL) Server database
