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.

Never a truer word has been spoken.  I remember a couple of people offered or did help with something I needed help with.  The one offering help at cost of course, his spelling was so atrocious that I wondered if he cares so little about spelling and grammar, how could he do a good job on what I wanted? Of course, that is just me.  Some don’t care.

There are more access trainers out there than there are flies on a summer's day.  just be careful to check out their creds.

Hi!

Soon, I am getting a new PC.  It will have Windows 10 Pro 64 bit.  Currently, I use Windows 7 Pro 64 bit.  I also use JAWS 2019.  So, is there some training I can read about making this transition?

Thanks,

Richard
