Hi all,

 

For anyone who is using Window-Eyes, or for anyone who is using a
competitor's screen reader to access the web, and finds that there are some
web pages you cannot access fully, I urge you to try the newest Window-Eyes
beta release of version 9.0.  It accesses web pages now in "real-time", with
no need for any page buffering.  This allows you to view changes to the web
page as soon as they occur, so that if you click on some page control, you
will immediately see any new or changed text without having to redraw a
page, update a buffer, etc.

 

Don't forget you can purchase Window-Eyes, lease it, or obtain a free copy
(if you own a current copy of MS Office).
