moderated Re: Training on Transitioning from Windows 7 to 10 with JAWS
My experiences were similar. The sighted trainer quit or got fired by the agency that hired her without finishing the job, promised she would not leave before finishing and of course left me hanging. The blind person would not keep appointments, frequently sleeping through the time, set out. He lived by his iPhone yet I guess did not feel it was important enough to keep his iPhone charged or the appointment itself. He played the blind card. “A blind person cannot tell whether it is night or day.” Try pulling that a 9-5 job. Upon reflection his boss was the same sighted person that left me and another blind person high and dry. Thus what do you expect. When I asked that same agency for help they said the sighted person was just doing me a favour by helping me and they could not and would not help. Helping me? She dragged it out for at least a year. I would suggest she was helping herself, not me. .

I once hired a blind friend who held himself out as an access trainer to help with a PC issue. He actually made things worse, and right in the middle of everything he said that his paratransit ride was coming and he had to leave.
