I attempted to submit this several days ago, but don’t think it ever posted.
There is a program available from Learning Ally which enables you to download
and read their Daisy books on a Windows computer.
It is not particularly screen reader friendly, at least with Window-Eyes.
Like many developers, they say they support the software with Jaws but haven’t
done anything at all with Window-Eyes. (typical of their track record)
As I investigate the software, I see that it uses an Internet Explorer Server.
(I’m not sure exactly what that tells me) However, if I do get the program to
launch and come into focus, I can turn Browse mode off, and then I am able to
tab through the controls and navigate somewhat.
The odd thing is that when I press ENTER on the desktop icon, the program does
not properly launch and come to the foreground.
I use ALT+TAB to cycle through running programs, and by doing that several
times, and then using the mouse to click on the application, I eventually get
it to open on the desktop.
Has anyone encountered this program, or this behavior?
... Any suggestions?
The program is available at: http://www.learningally.org/link
