[access-uk] Re: Windows 7 review

Peter, is there a list of these difficulties so people can decide whither or not upgrading is a show stopper?

Yes it is much better. But until JAWS and other screen readers have been updated to take in to account some of the differences you will have a few problems with it. However yes I would say ( and I think others have siad before) that there are many ways in which is is better.

Certainly performance wise it's much better.

Hi Peter

The access issues with vista put me off going down that route and I was
hoping that Windows 7 would have addressed those. So, we have a promising
system in Windows 7 then?

Cheers

Barry

Chris I wouldn't consider that a review at all. It's not particularly
informative or in no way answers the original question.

There are quite a few things which are better about Windows 7 and
accessibility is one of them. Many parts of Windows 7 work better and are
much more accessible than their Vista counter parts.

Windows 7 pros: search instantly anywhere, including your start menu.
Be confident with security thanks to User Account Control. Cons: still
a beta so will contain bugs and issues. Will look and work like Vista.

Ok, this is quite a vague query, I know, but I can't think of a better
way of asking the question.

I didn't fancy Windows Vista as a Jaws user, but is Windows 7 better
than XP for me as a blind computer user, or should I just stick with
what I know?

I'm not looking for a full review, just a couple of pro's and con's
perhaps.

Cheers

Barry
