RE: Prometric approved

Has anybody filed a lawsuit against this group or brought it to the attention 
of ACB and NFB? I'm not very letigious and am not promoting one organization 
over the other but this seems like a classic discrimination case.

I went through Prometric testing last year to get my Help Desk Analyst 
Certificate and ran pretty much the same problem you did, in that they would 
not allow even a demo copy of Magic (for large print) to be placed on their 
computer, and they would not do anything to enlarge their print. BTW, their 
print is very small and there's no need for it to be that way, it uses up very 
little of the screen. At least they could enlarge the print to "normal" size to 
fill the screen! It took me months to get through the "special circumstances" 
process. I'm not at all enamored with the Prometric group, and somebody needs 
to take them to task to make them ADA-compliant. Supplying you with a human 
reader is all they will do. I don't like that approach, I like hands-on doing 
my own tests thank-you, and I do much better with answering when I can look at 
the text and form my own "photograph" so to speak,
versus someone reading me multiple choice over and over till I make up my mind.
Good luck with your test.
