Re: JAWS and Amazon

You know, for years I have told everyone how great customer service has been at Freedom Scientific. I haven't been in touch with them for a year and a half or so. Another friend had another screen reader, and she used to envy the help I got that she didn't feel that she did. So I hope they will stay that way, and that there hasn't been a change or reduction in work force making it so hard for the ones there that they are frazzled.

Best to you from,

I'm really sorry to hear these kind of things. I've had pretty good in terms
of dealings with freedom scientific but have had a couple times where tech
support or customer service seems to be more likily to tell me how stupid
I'm for asking questions. I don't think people should be in any job that
incounters live people who are like that. Very frustrating.

Seldom if ever have I ever expressed any dissatisfaction with Freedom

I had been told to upgrade to JAWS 15 so finally I did it.

Well, with afriend watching my every move, I

Found it was very difficult to buy items on,

Impossible to select a different gift recipientfrom a list of

People one lists for shipping, and impossible to change shipping options.

I was using the latest Firefox with JAWS 15.

I called Freedom Scientificand explained this. I was told sarcastically to
go buy a new version of JAWS which I frankly thought was totally out of
line-since F S had been tauting the virtues of JAWS 15 for sometime!

Thinking some one cared, I mentioned that JAWS does not work with the
Amazon music player-very useful for playing musicand

Downloading music.

Would you believe I was corrected in a short manner as the speaker from F
S quipped why would any one

Even want to use the music player.

Why would any one asksuch astupidquestion?

I guess we should be permitted to use some key Amazon features and not

He criticized me for using JAWS 15-which was what F S had been recommending
all along.

Great sarcastic moral support.

So I ask this.

Are people shopping using JAWS 15 and latest Firefox on

I have watched friends use the Amazon music player and it has a lot of
good features. But F S I guess would

Dole outaccessibilityand maybe permit us to use it 3 versions from now. The

Called support hit hardas I spent a lot of time

Trying to use the Amazon site and the player.

Also F S support had told me that JAWS 15 worked with both.

Thank you and have a good day.
