Believe it is on their side. Very slow download the latest build. Takes a while longer to install it too. Something about this build that screams turtle's pace!

Re: Linux accessibility

Hi all,

<smiling> That's for darned sure! I went through a Linux phase in the mid-nineties and up till about 2004, then I totally switched to Windows. I was running Debian then with Speak-up. I tried Ubuntu briefly, but because I had students at the time who wanted help with Windows, I switched over. It was fun, but it takes a lot of work to run Linux.

I recently discovered a free accessible backup application called jaBuT.  It doesn't have every feature in the book, but it is fairly comprehensive for something that is free.  Backup programs which are both free and accessible are not very common.  The last version had a few accessibility related issues so I've been communicating with the developer to resolve them.  Today he released a new version and most of these issues have been fixed.  There are still a couple of sections which could do with more accessible labeling, but I think it is usable enough at this point.  The link to the homepage is below.

I don't either. I have had people to tell me not to be impatient. I have said I am not impatient, I just want to know, and asking is the way for me to find out, not to push or demand quicker action. This has been when playing cards, of all things. And one time, a player told me she didn't want to tell me what she had on the table, whereupon I said, no problem, reached over and felt all of her cards - might have broken her of sucking eggs, you might say. I never raised my voice and I smiled.

Hi all,

This is why, when asking for help of any kind, computer tech or
anything else, you need to control what's going on. Ask what they are
doing. Ask and ask and ask, even if you drive them nuts. Tell them
you want to know what's happening to your computer. Don't just sit
back and assume they are doing the right thing.

This is true of other things too. Ask what the doctor is doing and
why. Ask where you are being taken by train or airport personnel. Ask
where you are and confirm the address when riding in a cab or on
paratransit. Ask, ask, ask, ask, be proactive! It's your body, your
life, and you have control over it. You're not a package or a dumb
animal or doll. Ask! Make your needs known in a quiet but no-nonsense
way. Ask!

Subject: [TechTalk] not so pleased with Microsoft support
Well, the other day when I had the problem of not being able to open my
local newspaper I finally contacted Microsoft support for people with
disabilities. Yes they did fix the internet explorer problem but trashed a
lot more. The first thing that I noticed is that my day by day reminder
did not work. Here they stopped it from starting. Today was quite
disturbing, my grandson needed to send some photos to his professor. My
computer has never been able to see my or his iPhone so in 2012 I
purchased touch copy 11. This worked fine until this afternoon. I got some
weird message that it was on a network to which I had no access. Tried to
download and that version is no longer available. It would cost me $40 to
purchase the new one 2016.
I started looking in msconfig they turned so much off all update
capabilities, all apple and who knows what else. I just enabled all for
both services and startup. This did not correct the problem. After a lot
of searching I did locate the original download and was able to reinstall.
His pictures are on the way. Now I have to go back into msconfig and try
to remember what all I have previously stopped. I wonder why they stopped
things that had no bearing on I.E. Also I still wonder what will not work
when I need it. I am removing c cleaner that they installed. Just wonder
if it took out something that touch copy needs. I was always pleased with
their support until today. Too bad that I already filled out the survey
with high marks.

Hi David,

 

I'm glad you find Virtual Recorder useful.  Hopefully you will find the WinPE images useful as well.  Although I always feel obligated to remind users that WinPE is not really a talking Windows installer.  It can be used to install Windows with speech, but that is only a side effect.  It is not the only or even the original intended use for a PE.  WinPE is a stripped down version of Windows.  So while there are limitations, a PE can be used to perform many other tasks such as restoring disk images, formatting disks, recovering files from a damaged installation, making changes to the registry of an offline installation, resetting account passwords, and so on.

I thought her e-mail address might have a problem but I just tried setting up a fake account using her e-mail address and it was accepted by the program.  The program on her machine says the address is invalid and asks if we want to use it anyway.  That's in the e-mail address section of the account wizard.  I wonder if there is any connection between that and the username not being accepted later.  At any rate, I may advise her to try another e-mail program.

I recently discovered a free accessible backup application called jaBuT.  It doesn't have every feature in the book, but it is fairly comprehensive for something that is free.  Backup programs which are both free and accessible are not very common.  The last version had a few accessibility related issues so I've been communicating with the developer to resolve them.  Today he released a new version and most of these issues have been fixed.  There are still a couple of sections which could do with more accessible labeling, but I think it is usable enough at this point.  The link to the homepage is below.

Hi Carlos!

Thanks a lot for reminding me what the PE really is LOL! I have told many people about virtual recorder who had never heard of it. I do all of my audio tutorials for using win10 apps and many programs with Virtual recorder. They come out so clear. Have a great one.

Hi David,

 

I'm glad you find Virtual Recorder useful.  Hopefully you will find the WinPE images useful as well.  Although I always feel obligated to remind users that WinPE is not really a talking Windows installer.  It can be used to install Windows with speech, but that is only a side effect.  It is not the only or even the original intended use for a PE.  WinPE is a stripped down version of Windows.  So while there are limitations, a PE can be used to perform many other tasks such as restoring disk images, formatting disks, recovering files from a damaged installation, making changes to the registry of an offline installation, resetting account passwords, and so on.

I don't know if uninstalling and reinstalling office causes problems for how Office itself works.  I've seen discussions that uninstalling office damages something in Windows related to accessibility that makes other things not work properly outside of Office.  If those effects extend to office, I don't know.  I also don't know if this affects all screen-readers or just NVDA.

That is interesting to know about Office, because my husband had to install it three times on this computer, before just giving up that it doesn't show some way that meant something to him and Good Computer Guy in the programs. This was Office 2013, so probably Office has gotten too complex to be totally efficient. It works on my machine, but does not show up right.

Bye for now,

There is a big difference between not being able to solve every issue and causing harm.  There was a recent thread on a list I follow, I don't remember whidch one, where a Microsoft accessibility tech uninstalled office on someone's machine because that is the boilerplate thing to do when there is a problem you don't know how to solve.  Uninstalling Office caused lots of problems for the person.  Reinstalling Office both didn't solve the problem the user was having with office nor did it correct the other problems.  The user was in worse shape than before using the service.  it is known that uninstalling Office causes problems with one or more screen-readers.  A tech who is trained by the Microsoft accessibility service should have been informed of that.
 
I don't know how many people are helped and how many are harmed.  I would think that many more people are helped.  That doesn't excuse the harm.  Would you take the same attitude toward auto mechanics or airplane mechanics?  There are good ones and bad ones and if a plane crashes now and then, we just have to accept it.  I doubt you would.  There are standards in such professions.  We should expect the Microsoft service to adhere to certain minimum standards and one of them is that if you can't help, you should not do harm.  Of course, harm will be done on occasion; no one is perfect.  But I've heard too many complaints of harm to consider them to be an acceptable number.

Hi Gene,

As far as I am concerned no tech support help is going to solve all problems and not cause some issues on some people’s computers. But if they help way more than cause issues, I think this is a good thing. If everyone thinks every time they call MS and they are suppose to solve all their issues every time, this is not going to happen.

We don’t live in a perfect world. So again if you think MS is going to solve every issue then I guess you are expecting too much from MS. There is no way any tech can solve every issue.  I have bought brand new computers and have had issues right out of the box. So nothing is perfect and it is never going to be a perfect tech support line. Some tech are just going to be better at solving issues just like there are better doctors, car mechanics. No Matter how much training they get some are just going to be better than others.

So I appreciate the help I do get from MS and think it is a good service.

So because something is free we should be happy for whatever we get?  In that case, how are people to know if the service should be used and what to be aware of when using it?  I can't tell you how much I disagree with the view that we should give up our critical faculty just because something is done for us poor blind people for free.

 

One reason library service for the blind is as good as it is is because blind advocates agitated for good service.  One reason Microsoft and other companies are aware of accessibility is because advocates made them aware.

 

If you provide a service, free or not, you have a responsibility not to leave people in worse shape than when they came to you.  The service helps many people.  it also does damage to some or perhaps many peoples' machines.  Are we supposed to be uninformed and not evaluate the service just because it is free?  If someone asks you about the service, are you going to say, it's wonderful and not say that you have seen a number of complaints about it which indicate that it is spotty, depending on who you get to work with you, that it may help but it may not and it may do harm?  Are you advocating not discussing such matters because we should be paralyzed with overwhelming gratitude that something is provided for free?

 

No one is whining.

In my humble opinion, I appreciate Microsoft providing free tech support for the blind computer user. I encourage all my group members to call them with various issues that are too hard to cover in group emails. Are they perfect? No, but who is? So quit whining about a totally free service provided to all blind computer users please. LOL.

You mean if I were a tech and someone asked me the wrong thing?  What is the wrong thing?  If someone doesn't understand something and doesn't want me to do it because they don't understand, if I want to help the person, that may be frustrating.  But I don't see how there can be a "wrong thing" to ask.

It's not a question of being a mind-reader.  there are just common sense things a tech should do and the techs in the service should be told or instructed to do this.  Of course, if they don't, you should talk with them and tell them to.  But there is nothing unreasonable about expecting techs who work for the service to be instructed to do this.

Hi all,

This is why, when asking for help of any kind, computer tech or anything else, you need to control what's going on.  Ask what they are doing.  Ask and ask and ask, even if you drive them nuts.  Tell them you want to know what's happening to your computer.  Don't just sit back and assume they are doing the right thing.

This is true of other things too.  Ask what the doctor is doing and why.  Ask where you are being taken by train or airport personnel.  Ask where you are and confirm the address when riding in a cab or on paratransit.  Ask, ask, ask, ask, be proactive!  It's your body, your life, and you have control over it.  You're not a package or a dumb animal or doll.  Ask!  Make your needs known in a quiet but no-nonsense way.  Ask!
