Re: JFW on a thumb drive

Well sure, but why not just put the video intercept executable on the thumb drive? This is assuming of course that you have enough room to store both the thumb drive JAWS and the video intercept program on the same thumb drive. if you do there should be no need for carying around an extra cd.
This way you can install the video intercept on multiple computers, if you have administrative rights on those systems.

Hi,
I may not be saying this right, but couldn't one put the video intercept on to a CD and
take it with one--assuming one had the administrative privileges to use itt ona new computer--
In other words, wouldn't that make the process a 2-step process and hence easier?
I saythis as I have turne down voluntteer opportunities due to hassle of setting up JAWS to work a computer on site due to probability of not getting the same computer every time.

Hi, yes Microsoft could infact put the vcm on the operating they could

Couldn't Microsoft put these video intercept drivers or files or whatever they are on all their operating systems The sighted people wouldn't either know they were there or would be effected by their presents. ----- Original Message ----- From: "Yardbird" <yardbird@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx> To: <jfw@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> Sent: Friday, October 07, 2005 11:56 AM Subject: Re: JFW on a thumb drive


Well explained, Bruce.  But in the course of this discussion, I've
become painfully aware that this is evidence of an accessibility
problem yet to
be
addressed and overcome, and it makes me sad and frustrated.  If only
there were some simple method of allowing us Jaws and other screen
reader types
to
temporarily use Jaws on other computers without either incurring
additional
charges to ourselves nor ripping off Freedom Scientific in any way,
that would be truly desirable.  I can barely express how important and

enabling something like this would be.  I can only wish that someone
will find a
way
to make this all cohere and open up the world to us screen reader
people just that much more.  How cool it would be to be able to visit
someone and be able to use their computer, just by plugging in a
little device that would leave no trace once disconnected.

Darn, as they say in some quarters, these days.

Part of the problem is that for the thumb drive option to really be effective, you need the video intercepts installed. So for you to effectively use it in a library situation, you'd pretty much need administrative rights for the library's computer, and I strongly doubt

the library would give that to you. All three of the major screen
readers run up against this wall.
