To add additional reasons for using Firefox is that, with the 3.0 release, one can use a number of "Web 2.0" pages like googledocs and gmail with NVDA, JAWS and Window-Eyes (they may work with other screen readers as well but I haven't tried them. System Access, one of my favorite screen readers does not work very well with Firefox). Firefox works poorly with Macintosh if you don't install the FireVox add-in. cdh Chris Hofstader CUNY, BSO, ATG, Odds and Ends email: cdh@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Blog: http://www.blindconfidential.blogspot.com Skype: BlindChristian phone: 727-896-6393 -----Original Message----- From: bksvol-discuss-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:bksvol-discuss-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Monica Willyard Sent: Sunday, July 13, 2008 1:58 PM To: bksvol-discuss@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [bksvol-discuss] Re: o/t: Web Visum improves website access for blind This is way cool! I've been a Firefox user for years, and this is like getting extra candy at Christmas. (smile) For those of you who use Internet Explorer, Firefox works very well if you have Jaws 7 or later or have a version of Window Eyes released within the last two years or so. For the most part, web pages act and sound like what you're used to seeing in Internet Explorer. Firefox does work very well with Bookshare, and I've set it up to automatically unpack books when I download them. One feature I really like is that Firefox has a password manager that can remember your user name and password for each site you visit and will just fill those in for you when you arrive at the site. You can set a master password that you enter after starting the browser if you're concerned about someone accessing your user names and such. So when I get to the Bookshare site, all I have to do is look for the log-in button. I press enterand am good to go from there. -- Monica Willyard Visit my blog at http://www.scannersguild.com To unsubscribe from this list send a blank Email to bksvol-discuss-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxx put the word 'unsubscribe' by itself in the subject line.
