[access-uk] Re: First Guide dog

Peter, I thinkwhat you have to do is dial 195 and ask for registration. I have been registered with 195 from the start in 1989, and although I don't use it a great deal, I have always found them helpful.

Peter, yes, we do get free directory enquiries in the UK. I'm not sure how
you go about registering these days as I registered right at the start some
fifteen years back or more. By registering you get a password number to use
the service accessed by dialing 195.


Suppose you could use George's mini-tutorial on using Google to find out how
its done these days.


I don't know about anyone else here, but I'm finding increasingly that 195,
the number you dial, is often not much good these days. A friend of mine
tried several times to get a number with it, hoping that different staff
answering would come up with the goods. No way! In the end he dialed the
heavily advertized Maureen - a phone info service woman I grew to hate
through repeated advertizing to the extent I wish she'd been strangled at
birth. She did come up with the goods though. Something about geting what
you pay for?


Quite honestly though, I think this sort of separating out of info services
into profit centres is crap. I'd far sooner see directory enquiries as part
of the considerable rental we pay, which there's no escape from. That way
we wouldn't have to go through the process of signing up for 195.

Has anyone used BT's find a person, find a business while using Jaws? Its
quite amazing that this website doesn't have its form fields properly named.
I'm using Jaws 7. I'm a pretty good user of my screen reader. But I still
find this site very difficult to use, because of the unnamed form fields,
hence my question to the list about Holiday Inn, rather than making a
phonecall. What I'd like to know is, does a blind person get free directory
inquiries information and how do I go about it.
Thanks
Peter
