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?

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.

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 :) Amie ----- Original Message ----- From: Piano and PC To: Help_Needed_List@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx ; jaws-uk@xxxxxxxxxxxxx ; access-uk@xxxxxxxxxxxx ; jfw@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Wednesday, March 14, 2007 3:32 PM Subject: [jaws-uk] Off Topic: New Christian group Hi, everybody!
