VFO is basically a creation of Freedom Scientific: with all of its shoddy practices built in.

Hello list.

I don't think any comments sent to the vfo people will do much good.

Personally,I hope Microsoft Narater becomes so perfected that it puts the other screen reader into the useless category.

That would make Narrater the main screen reader just as Voiceover is for the Apple products.

Probably that's how it should be any way.

The possibility of Window Eyes being phased out just makes my heart sick.

Having to change over to something else andlearn all those commands and other things just seems a little to much of a chalange at this age.

Something is just a little funny about this whole thing.

Hello list,

I have now sent a note to VFO via their contact us facility on their web
site.

It was interesting to find that in their list of products that they will
take note of Window-Eyes does not exist!
I had to use JAWS and then tell them I was talking about Window-Eyes in my
comments.



Regards, John

No official word yet.  If you want to make sure Window-eyes stays
around, please write to the VFO folks and let them know that you expect
the same type of customer service and great products as you did when ai
squared was around. This will let them know you care about the product
and that you are a loyal user.

Subject: The Phasing Out of Window-Eyes

Hello John,

I have been drafting a letter to VFO because, as you know, there is
speculation that Window-Eyes is going to be phased out.  If it is, I am
not switching to Jaws, because I won't be able to afford it, amongst
other reasons.  However, in my letter, I have pointed out that if
Window-Eyes goes, it provides a significant problem for blind people
wanting to get into work, as not everyone has an access to work fund.
Moreover, one of the few ways we can work, especially for younger
people, is volunteering, and there, we may be in a crisis, as IT
technicians are paranoid about NVDA, since it is open source, and they
think it could contain a virus or compromise security in another way.
We would be in limbo, as they won't want NVDA, and they won't pay for
Jaws, as Access to Work won't pay for equipment for unpaid work, so you
would have to buy a license for every computer you use out of your own
pocket. What do you think? Also, I have heard that they are developing
both Magic and ZoomText.  How come they are doing that, but phasing out
Window-Eyes?  To me, this is a case of double standards.
