Re: disability and help

ah, yes and I think she felt it qualified due to jaws and discrimination against it on machines that vi folks are forced to use for testing machines "> had a clever friend then who wanted to use jaws to take a very high grade ccisco examination he had no help even then in spite of the latif case which some of you may know,..."


If anyone is interested in the case referred to, I have copies of it as well, a glowing example of what the world thinks about screen readers and accessibility!

This is a little bit too off topic even for me - i'm going to answer
because you seem so distressed - if you have a grievence, you can
litigate it, get legal aid, find some public interest lawyers yes,
they do exist.

 I know the law says a lot and the statute books are full,but in
practice,well I had reason to telephone the Human rights and resources
office in Manchester yesterday, and was lucky to get a very knowledgeable
man,who remembered the conciliation arm going into receivership in 2006, I had a clever friend then who o wanted to use jaws to take a very high grade ccisco examination he had no help even then in spite of the latif case which some of you may know, person I spoke to said,the cuts being made will mean "we will not be able even to give a helpline service,the drc helpline will close"our own jobs are on the line, huge cuts mean what? exactly need I say more? I had an email from a professor in Manchester Isaac porat, brilliant man,taking early retirement, yes he uses jaws,next moment on news was news that thousands of local council staff are to be cut in Manchester, , we in Kent are holding our breath for news about ours, in times like this the cuts will most of all hurt the blind poor and disabled and the law ?well it is there if you are rich enough to engage a solicitor yourself,sorry but i am
really sad about many things  Dorothy
