[access-uk] Re: FW: Re: Braille display options

I had no response from them and I do not have the particulars now re purchase etc. Now I am interested as I have a lame duck programme at present, why you would wonder why I would want it anyway. I have found it invaluable when I've been sent image scanned documents as it has converted them to optical character recognition for me and made a 99.9% good job. Other than that I like the programme simply because all my student text books were in that format. In addition the university provides pdf forms for completion by students and I can again call on it. Now as a very experienced person with technology Ibrahim, do tell me what would you have in preference?

Hi Eleanor.

OK, so have you contacted Adobe customer services? Perhaps they could give you either a replacement key or a duplicate of your original if you provided them with a proof of purchase. I cant imagine why you'd want that program anyway but then, I'm not you *smile*.

All the best, Ibrahim.

Hi Eleanor.

What are you talking about? Could you please elaborate? Mainly, give us the name of this piece of software and then someone on here might be able to help you.

All the best, Ibrahim.

I agree with most of what you say there Derek. I was disappointed with some service I had from a particular company and had to go back to an old favourite. It was a pity to be made to feel a 'nuisance' rather than a customer seeking service. I was only further disappointed in the past 2 weeks, when I contacted a member of staff from the company regarding a key for a peace of software but clearly that person still felt he could not assist me as a result of disharmony from over a year ago. What was most disappointing for me was that my origional software key which I had on record on my PC was wiped out when the company was attempting to rebuild my computer.

As a matter of interest for you technical people, now given that I no longer have my activation code for a very expensive peace of software, is there anything I can possibly do to find out the code to the software. I have the software running on a laptop but of course I can never reinstall it again on another PC as I have no key. Any ideas please?

Hi  Jackie
Surely  it would  be bad management  if one was to take on
A member of staff  on the basis blind.

Staff should never be taken on  based on disability,  it should
Always be based on ability to do the job, And also is there need for
the extra job?
Clearly  in the case of  Sight & Sound,  they must feel they
Have  enough staff  now.
Regards,  Derek

As you know Paul, I gave S and S every assistance I could to advertise and
recruit a blind person with good Braille skills to become part of the
company before I left. Sadly, however, nothing was done about it, I moved away, and thankfully we all appear to be happy with the paths we have taken.

i think it is a great pity that a company the size of sight and sound
chooses not to employ fulltime a blind person in such a role! this calls into question your commitment to employing blind people in my view! very
poor indeed!

Actually we do have a blind person to demonstrate, train and support our customer base. We have Jonathan Tyrer, who works UK wide for us in this role. He is not a full time employee, but he works for us on a day to day basis and has been successful. He has a very wide experience base - not
just Freedom products, but all software and hardware and also more
recently Apple solutions.

This for me is what we are all about, looking after our customer base, so if you would like to learn more about the Focus 40 Blue just contact us
and we will do our best to help.

Regards
Glenn

They don't have a blind person like myself to go out and demo, train and support their Braille products as it currently stands and, in my honest experience, there is nobody like a Braillist to really demonstrate what a
display or other similar hardware can do.

Ask Sight & Sound Catherine. Sight & Sound are aware that it does not
work
with the N97 Mini as I told them.  Also informed Freedom Scientific.
Maybe
it has to do with N97 Mini being a 5th generation phone but it works well with the other phones. Don't Sight & Sound have a service, well they did
when Jackie worked there, where someone would come out and show you a
Braille display, in that case, the person could try it with our phone and then you would know before purchasing it. There is a really nice man at Freedom Scientific who uses the Focus Blue all the time with his phone. I wrote to him too re the drivers but whether they do anything about it or
not
is anyone's guess. While I was disappointed, I have to say of course that
the Focus Blue is excellent in conjunction with PC also.

Ah.  Did you ask the manufacturer about this?  Is there a particular
reason why it doesn't work with the n97 mini?  Is there any way of
knowing before purchase whether it would work or not. I will have to ask Sight And Sound about it, but presumably if it didn't work I could
return it for a refund.

Hi,

My BrailleNote PK died recently and I decided it wasn't worth the
price to fix it, it needing a new memory board. So I am tentatively
looking at braille display options.  I need either to be able to
write notes on the braille display, or for the display to work with
my Nokia
E5 mobile phone running Talks.  Having used an 18 cell display for
some time now I know I would not want to go below that.

Am I right in thinking that the Focus 40 blue, at £1995 from Sight
And Sound, would be the cheapest option?
