Re: Quicken


Chris, I assume you use MT? is it better to use it with the built in
voicing feature or turn it off and use a screen reader like JAWS or NVDA?

Hi Robin,
What about something like Money Talks from APH?
It is a pretty accessible program and sounds like it may do what you want.

Thanks to Les and Stan. That sounds about like the access I had with
Window Eyes. Quicken is offering a 60-day money back guarantee on
trying Quicken 2017 and they say they've revamped the interface, which
could go either way on accessibility. I lost a year's worth of Quicken
files due to a computer crash last summer, so I'm going to start fresh
and maybe given Quicken 2017 a try. I tried the Cash Manager software
someone else mentioned and didn't have the patience to figure it out; it
was not intuitive. Like Les, I'm mainly tracking spending categories
for my accountant and our family budgeting.

Hi Robin,

I'm using it for downloading of transactions into various accounts. You
can tab through the check registries, but often, double entries are read.
Accessibility needs lots of work. As mentioned, Intuit sold the Quicken
product to Quicken itself. The web site is They provide
support, but it depends on who you get when you call. I use it now
because I want to categorize transactions for tax purposes for our
accountant. If there was another viable option, I'd take it. I will
probably add investment accounts to my accounts list, something I don't
think other programs support. Cash Management had some potential, but
they didn't support the Quicken format, and there was poor follow-up
from their contact when I approached them about this issue. Every
package I know of supports the Quicken format, so that was
disappointing. Hope this helps.

Anyone using JAWS with Quicken? I'll be moving to JAWS from
Window-Eyes, which has some level of accessibility with the personal
