Re: About to go to Windows 7 -- Arrgh!

and don't forget that there are my helpful notes (loads of them) off my grab bag site: (address/link under my name)
there are some audio training files on blind cool tech:

and also some superb ones on the blind-geek-zone website:

and this from Microsoft itself:
List, here is the direct link to the Microsoft web site for the article to help get you oriented to windows 7 entitled
"Accessibility-transitioning to windows 7".
It is 20 pages long, has excellent descriptions and includes a very usable
set of tables with short cut keys that we all need to know and use if we
cannot access the mouse.

Have fun.

hope these are helpful,

I've been using 7 for almost a year and don't really notice many differences between it and Vista. I really like it aside from a few things I wish I could find out how to do. And, this is said from the lady that came into Windows from Unix kicking and screaming. LOL I think you'd be OK with 7 unless you use a lot of old programs that aren't compatible with it. I've only found one that I couldn't find a good replacement yet for.
Good luck and email me privately if you need or want any help.

advice, everyone.
