I had no luck with Internet Explorer 7. I eventually had success with Firefox 3.6 after choosing the English language from the ComboBox next to the compiler of interest, then doing mouse clicks around any related text until a Save As dialog finally popped up.

Everybody has trouble with that site -- well, anyone with a screen reader. Now we all know that a client with a screen reader is easy to identify, so perhaps M$ has decided to block blind users from getting certain products... Maybe the message is, "if you can find it, it is accessible." *smile* I'm actually glad I'm not the only one who wasted time battling that site. Not that I want others to waste their time, it's just that I know there wasn't something simple I was missing. Thanks to Jamal for downloading.

I went to the download site for the Express modules and it looks like carp! It looks like one of those CMS sites with allot of links that do nothing - or at least seemingly so with my screen reader. I just end up bouncing around from page to page. I clicked on the Visual Basic OnClick and had set the language to English but nothing but the screen dynamically doing things that did not seem to have anything to do with downloads. Also links that said something like Express/ ... What the? Ya, Microsoft has not added any accessibility to their phone OS and have been making a conserted effort to throw accessibility out the window if they can. That page reads like a schizophrenic on acid and a pint or 2. Well, I see the links you posted but really, Microsoft is going downhill since the Old Man left.

The Visual Web product is not included here because it involves more extensive pre-installation requirements. These installers retrieve software directly from the Microsoft web site, so one obtains the same components either way. Visual Basic http://EmpowermentZone.com/vb_web.exe Visual C# http://EmpowermentZone.com/vcs_web.exe Visual C++ http://EmpowermentZone.com/vc_web.exe These installers assume that version 4 of the .NET Framework is installed. One way of installing it is via the GotNET utility, available at http://EmpowermentZone.com/netsetup.exe After installing a VS Express Edition, go to the Register dialog off the Help menu and choose the button to get a registration key online. After signing into this Microsoft site, you can get a key from a resulting web page or email message. Copy and paste that key into the registration dialog. Let me suggest that this is a particularly good time for evaluating how well different screen readers work with Visual Studio, and reporting those observations. The latest JAWS, NVDA, and Window-Eyes versions are all claiming VS support. If we find that a screen reader works better than others in particular ways, the developers of competing screen readers may be motivated to address their weaknesses so that they can distinguish themselves as offering the best -- or at least equivalent -- VS support.
