Hi again, thank you for those responses.  This accounts thing really is a huge 
problem, and the shortage of VI accounts bod's is self-fulfilling, isn't it?  A 
friend of mine is in the process of losing his job because he cannot access the 
compulsory accounting exams which are a part of the development program he's 
on.  His PhD cannot, apparently, save him from this.  Within my own small 
business I chicken out and let my partner do the accounts - struggling about 
with Excel, when I have to.  It makes me a bit cross, but then, so do most 
things... does anyone see light at the end of the accounting tunnel?

  Hi Amie,

  Regarding Sage & RNIB.  They are using a version of Sage used mostly in major 
organisations.  Moreover, they are using a special "charities" module of Sage.  
And added to that, are certain customised areas where Sage has been adapted to 
suit special accounting requirements within RNIB.

  We must also bear in mind that Sage have a number of products ranging from 
their low cost "Instant Accounts" for small businesses where there is only one 
user, up to versions designed for organisations with literally thousands of 
users.  There are also many customised add-ons produced by 3rd party companies.

  I think over overall problem is that there are not many visually impaired or 
blind accounts and bookkeepers around, and therefore the question of 
accessibility has been fairly low key.

  As regards religious postings, you are quite correct.  This list is not for 
such discussions, although I am prepared to allow the occasional announcement 
of things which may be of interest to JAWS users generally.

  Hi all - thank you for all the stuf about accounts, to which I am glued!  
Wondering why the RNIB's commissioned scripts to access Sage haven't become a 
product for everyone; is it just because they're RNIB?  Maybe I have the wrong 
end of the stick...?  Also, hope I'm not speaking out of turn but I'd rather 
learn about JAWS issues on this list - not religiosity.  Hope it isn't going to 
be a habit.  Back into my box I go now :)

    Hi, everybody!

    This is to let you know that I started a new group at yahoogroups to share 
our experiences about our lives in Christ.
    I am sure that we can learn a lot from one another.
    We can also pray for each other whenever we need it.
