Although this list is rightly focused on technology problems and solutions,
I've noticed two opposing attitudes that color our approaches to these
issues: caveat emptor and caveat vendor, that is, buyer beware and seller
beware. There's no question that we must do our homework before obtaining
new systems and software. On the other hand, I find as a JAWS user that I
need to know more about computers than my sighted friends do. As with my
sighted friends, I'm torn between needing to know enough about computers to
make them serve my purposes and having my computer take over my life.
In that light, while we're responsible for taking the steps we can to ensure that anything we do with our computers is compatible with JAWS, we must hold Freedom Scientific accountable for keeping us well informed about compatibility issues and for maintaining JAWS's ability to handle developments. If we do our part, we have a right to expect FS to do theirs.
