Downloading a free app yourself and giving it a try is a good way to find out if something is going to meet your needs or not. Asking about an ap on list is also perfectly OK. One thing you could have done, although it shouldn't be necessary, is mention that you'd downloaded it already but had to wait for the log on to be provided first. Like I said, you don't have to mention this at all, but I've found the more information like this that you provide when you ask a question the higher quality answer you'll get.


IMHO, if all someone is going to say is download it and try it yourself then they could just save themselves the trouble and the unnecessary list traffic by hitting the delete key instead.


I don't think it's true that the company doesn't have to worry about accessibility just because you're a contractor. I mean, if a contractor can't do the job then an employee couldn't either.


Finally, I think this list has like 1500 members on it, so I wouldn't let one person's rudeness keep you from taking advantage of what the other 1499 members can offer. Using the delete key when you see messages from certain users or setting up a rule with your email client or provider can go a long way towards improving you're on line experience.

Helko donald and thank you for that kind response. To answer Shaf's question, I did download it but you have to have log in information to even get to the chat screen. I don't get that until my orientation. Excuse me for trying to be prepared so I wouldn't look inept on my first day. I didn't want to make my blindness a focal point of my job. They know but unless then need to do something I don't need to involve them. I'm not an empployee but a contractor so they have no obligation for accessibility. If I come to orientation and flounder with the app, they may just decide not to hire me. Sorry for wanting to be productive. Shaf's continued slander doesn't help. I wish the list owner would stop it but I've writen before and had no success. Maybe it's time to just give up on this list because Shaf is allowed to continue his defamation. I don't care any more it no longer bothers me, but I do have a presence on the web with my new job so this is not productive. At any rate, I'm sorry now I thought someone on here might be helpful but all I ever get is Shaf's stupidity.

    Wow!What a useful and thought provoking answer!I’m always
    impressed with the deep thought utilized in assisting the questioner.

    One wonders with responses like that, why would the person want to
    even be on a lists like this!

    How about downloading the app and checking its accessibility yourself?

        Hello, I am about to start a new job hopefully, but I need to
        know if Glip is accessible. It's a chat or connecting type app
        from Ring Central.
