[access-uk] Re: Vista delaying adopting

Barry, I totally agree with you, forget differences from command line to 
GUI, even when people have been told that there's quite a bit of difference 
between win 9x and XP I remember there was a lot of panic. Granted, vist is 
even more different than any previous windows and as much as I can see why 
many people wouldn't like to upgrade, I also don't see too many reason why 
not. Sure things will be different, but sometimes different doesn't 
necessarily mean bad. Again, as I said last night I'm not going to rush in 
to it and, like you Barry, I'll most likely set it in a dual boot 
environment 'till I'm completely comfortable with it.

Tris.

I'm curious in terms of usability Will a screenreader user notice much
difference to their sighted peer?

I've heard that things are shuffled about and some things are refered to
differently.  Surely this will be a change for everyone?

Like Vanja I have a new machine that will take Vista no probs and likewise
am not planning on getting it on the 30th.  However, I also want to try it
out.

I'll probably install it as part of a dual boot untill i feel comfortable
enough to switch completely.

I realise this is a new OS and considerations need to be taken.  I am
concerned that people might be taking, (if diluted slightly), the same view
to Vista when we moved from command line to GUI.

It is a different platform granted but I do feel people are paniking a
little too much.
I also have a feeling that the business user viewpoint is being mixed in
with the home user/enthusiast.

I completely agree that anyone thinkign their going to install Vista and it
will just work might be unplesently surprised.  In saying this scepticism
for scepticism sake is also a tad annoying.

Keep your eyes peeled on the FS website towards the end of January, you
should notice something happening with regard to VISTA and Jaws about that
time the free update for Jaws users is being worked upon as we speak.
I do believe that some of the accessibility concerns are not as pressing as
some may suggest, however it does take some getting used to and there will
innevitably be some issues.
