Re: Microsoft Project 2013

Good afternoon everyone,


There are ways many more of us could follow his example if we would tap in
to business opportunities when presented with them. We've seen blind people
introduced to such opportunities and refuse to attempt to create financial
independence for their families and themselves. Then they wonder why they're
unable to buy access technology, enroll in top-notch blindness
rehabilitation programs, insure a bright future for blind children and
youth, the list goes on. Society doesn't tell them to reject such
opportunities. They do it to themselves. A little OT but food for thought
since the subject of affording the cost of access technology comes up on
this list frequently.

Thank you for the explanation. It is appreciated. Isn't that the goal for
us all. Stevie Wondering seems to me to be a marvelous thing. I am glad
not to have to worry over accessibility, and to have the funds to pay for
what I feel I can't do myself.

Paying someone else to navigate for you and follow your instructions.
Stevie
doesn't deal with accessibility problems in most of what he does because
he
has the money to pay someone to surmount the obstacles his blindness
might
introduce.

The term sounds rather derogatory to me. Is that its significance?

I use Office 2007 too, though not Project currently.
I've been there, dealing with a Office of Students with Disabilities
that
seemed to think their mission was to not inconvenience teachers if at
all
possible. And any assistance the student can provide is always
appreciated
in fixing problems. But if they have to change software requirements,
have
someone to assist with use of the software, or any other option,
they're
required to do it by federal law, and not some vague point in the
future
either, but in a reasonable time frame. There are ways to get around
it if
you have to, even if you have to "Stevie Wonder" it.

Nicole,

You're right in the abstract, and fortunately the abstract often
becomes reality under this law. However, it sounds as though Snow
plans
to take this course now, while the technological solution waits
somewhere in the future. If Snow needs to take the course now, it is
a
problem calling for self-help solutions.

I hope Snow isn't discouraged from posting questions as problems
occur.
If I'm not mistaken, Dave Carlson uses Office 2007, so it's possible
the current situation isn't as dire as it first appears.

Hate to be blunt, but though it's nice of you to do what you can to
help them, it's not actually your problem, it's the school's problem
to
find an answer. You're not the one with an 805J problem, they are,
so
they're going to have to figure out a way for you to benefit from
the
class and work out the difficulties. Anything you do to help them
out
is nice of you, but not mandatory. And they can't reasonably make a
case for Project Management being a job blind folks can't do like
some
other things like piloting aircraft.

That souns so scary, David! I don't know what I'll have to do with
this course (MBA Project Management) in the fall. Do any of you
have
any suggestions for me? This class is a requirement so I cannot
skip
it.
Thanks a lot
Snow

Beyond that I would presume that it gets worse. The JAWS scripts
are
not very useful on the newer versions.

I can answer half your question. I used Project 2000 a while
back,
and
it was wonderful. It made managing a project a dream, because
you
could assign tasks, set preliminary tasks, track resource loads
for
individuals, and keep a clear idea of what deadlines you were
facing
soon and what had to be done to get different tasks done.
At one point it was very accessible, because the folks at FS
were
using it, and so the blind staff members pushed to make sure it
was
accessible thorough Jaws. I've heard tales about how it's not as
accessible as it was because those employees aren't on staff
anymore, so the impetus is no longer there.
Microsoft has a new accessibility helpdesk, so that might be a
good
vector to explore. Sorry, I don't have the number for it, but
I've
heard that they do a great job of helping folks out.

Hi everybody!
I'm a fairly new member of the list. So, through this email,
I'd
like
to say "hello" to all of you.
Also, I'd like your help.
I'll need to work with MS Project 2013 in my MBA coming fall
quarter.
However, I haven't ever used this program before. Has any of
you
used
the program? Is it accessible for JAWS users? I'm worried
because
I'm
totally blind so I rely solely on Jaws to study.
Thank you in advance for all of your help.
Sincerely
Snow
