Re: Jaws users look out, touch-screen Windows


With all the problems Microsoft has had with Vista, they'll probably be much more careful with their next OS release. Maybe they'll even make Windows Narrator more usable. ----- Original Message ----- From: "Ray Campbell" <ray.campbell@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

All right everyone, let's chill a bit and not overreact.  Microsoft
states they are committed to accessibility, whether or not they continue
to support mouse and keyboard interfaces will help us prove just how
committed they are.  It was inevitable that Microsoft would want to head
down this road, but remember they have a whole accessibility group and
they have worked very well with FS and other screen reader vendors.
