Re: Enterprise software

epierce@...
 

Given that employees (who are acting in good faith) have little or no real legal protection from being attacked by enterprise software vendors with political connections that have deeply evil motivations, it isn't apparent to me why you would refer to the harsh realities involved in surviving in the current, typically toxic workplace as "passivity".

I take it that you have no actual experience with worker representation, or how accessibility is actually taken up in highly dysfunctional organizational cultures.

The balance of power is usually overwhelmingly weighted against an employee that dares to complain. Period.

Nothing will change until the existing, flawed architectures of the cash cows products of large enterprise software vendors are redone from the ground up with "accessibility built in". Until that paradigm shift takes place (probably about the same time as world peace is established), the vendors will viciously guard their profit centers and make sure that the management (including the accessibility bureaucracy) of their customers "buys in" to maintaining the status quo.

I hope you can "connect the dots" here. Again, the employee typically has almost no power, and the employer and vendor have almost all the power.

A situation has evolved where customer management typically has a vested interest in maintaining power by viciously suppressing any significant internal criticism of problems with enterprise software.

I would be overwhelmed with happiness if you could cite cases to the contrary of legal or administrative settlements that involve enterprise software accessibility.

To give you some idea of the appalling climate for workers in many organizations, please see the article at the following link:

Odds are you've run across one of these characters in your career. They're glib, charming, manipulative, deceitful, ruthless -- and very, very destructive. And there may be lots of them in America's corner offices."

Hello, everyone.

I have decided to try Outlook 2010 as my main e-mail client on a
Windows 7
laptop.

I have successfully interfaced Microsoft Outlook with my g-mail
account, but
have run into an interesting problem.

I can't seem to import my old Outlook Express address book into the new
Outlook program.

I have saved my old Outlook Express address book as a .wab file onto a
thumb
drive, but can't seem to get it to be imported into the new Outlook
2010
contacts.


I can get to the import wizzard, but can't seem to get Outlook to
recognize
my older Outlook Express .wab address file.

Another list member sent me instructions from the Microsoft web site,
but I
can't get them to work.

Here's the link, in case anyone is interested or wants to see them:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/291602



Any suggestions or a set of steps that is known to work would be
appreciated.

I'm using Jaws 12 and Windows 7 here.

Re: Enterprise software

Adrian Spratt
 

You don't state your source for these statements, but you appear to quote
them to support your argument in another post for employee passivity. In my
experience, disabled employees who are too timid to assert their adaptive
needs suffer more harm than if they resign themselves to limits driven by
fear of job loss. Agreed, it is important to know what the limits of
accessibility may be in a particular area, which is perhaps what you're
suggesting, but you go too far. Nothing damages morale like passivity, and
nothing impairs the respect an employee can earn than inability to work
productively with the employer's software.

Note that a company as big as Oracle, which produces not only its eponymous
database but also PeopleSoft, should be held accountable for their
accessibility, just as Microsoft has been. This may be something for the
ACB, NFB, the Justice Department and other organizations to take up.
Meanwhile, employees who are harmed by their limited accessibility should
ensure their supervisors know, and accommodations can be demanded.

Have you asked your union to investigate compliance issues?

Typically, union representatives can help you with not only workplace
specific contract violations, but can also assist an employee whose working
conditions are bad where those conditions are violating organizational
policies, or state or federal labor laws, workplace health and safety, ADA,
and so forth.

In some cases, large, expensive enterprise software packages that have not
historically been designed to be accessible are made minimally accessible
primarily for purposes of legal compliance (to minimize the company's
exposure to litigation) in newer versions. However, there may not be very
many visually impaired people that are actually able to use such products in
a productive or effective manner directly via the standard interface.

brad,

when using my ISP's webmail, when I click either "reply" or "reply all", the email address in the "To:" field of that reply is always:

However, the message body contains something like the following, which always contains the email address of the person that is being responded to. That person's email address can always be cut/pasted into the "To:" field, replacing the list address.

Hope that helps!

If not, please let me know what needs to be clarified.

Re: PeopleSoft and other applications with JAWS

According to a Union Steward:

Public employees that are critical of large IT vendors may not be free to speak publicly about problems with such products without risking a reprimand caused by a complaint from the vendor executives to the employee's management.

The vendors technically comply with legal accessibility requirements, which may not be the same as actually being accessible for most visually impaired employees.

Re: JAWS and on-the-job software

Marquette, Ed <Ed.Marquette@...>
 

Emily:
I would contact the software vendors directly. It may get you nowhere, but software vendors tend to be helpful, particularly if you drop a gentle hint about being 508 compliant.
Often, they will furnish demo software. Network packages may be another story. Still, they will sometimes let you talk to someone technical.
The key questions to ask are:
1. Is this a client/server application or a Web application;
2. Does the application use standard controls from the Microsoft Windows operating system;
3. Has the vendor ever had to deal with a customer/user with a visual impairment?
That should get you started, at least.

Re: Convenient OCR not so much

I tried to use it on a Merle Haggare dVD the other day, which contains a
trivia section. I couldn't even find the section, let alone read it.
I've done better with a standard remote.

There are a couple of special CD's I want to try, including a UK
basketball encyclopedia (never could find my way into the arena), and a
railroad simulator, which has great promise, but all attempts to label
graphics have failed.

After pressing Ctrl+3 to open the contacts, View Menu, then Current View.
Select Detailed Address Card.

It's the easiest to use scrolling up/down/left/right with JAWS.

To find someone, just start typing their name and you'll drop right on the

Also helps to have your reading pane turned off.

After pressing Ctrl+3 to open the contacts, View Menu, then
Current View.
Select Detailed Address Card.

It's the easiest to use scrolling up/down/left/right with JAWS.

To find someone, just start typing their name and you'll drop
right on the
first one with a match. Press Enter for details or to edit.

Also helps to have your reading pane turned off.

Dear list,

Is there a way to scroll through your address book in outlook
2007? I know
you can type into the search field, but I need to be able to look
through
all my contacts as I'm sending to multiple people and not sure
all the
people I have in my contact list. Any help is greatly
appreciated. Thanks

Re: Convenient OCR not so much

Gary King
 

Convenient OCR is not going to take the place of either a regular commercial OCR program or the specialty ones like Open Book or Kurzweil 1000. If you get a lot of PDF or other documents that are just images, you'll need one of these programs. Even in the FS demonstration of Convenient OCR, they said as much. I have used it successfully on a few DVDs to get the actual titles of the episodes and in some graphical installation programs. I tried the feature on a PDF booklet that came with an album I got from iTunes, but I suspect the background and pictures interfered with the OCR. To be fair, I didn't get much better results when I used Open Book to OCR the booklet. I usually just give JFW 13 a shot at the job to see what I get, with no great expectations.

All:
I thought there might be one redeeming virtue to JAWS 13, namely, Convenient OCR, or whatever it is called.
I regularly receive PDF documents that are, in fact, images. I also receive faxes occasionally.
They are in TIF format.
I've tried the "S" for screen and the "W" for window options.
I regularly get utterly useless information.
Has anyone successfully scanned anything useful with this very ineffective OCR?
Seriously, if I didn't have so much free disk space, I'd totally delete JAWS 13, the utterly most worthless version of JAWS ever -- nominated for the Hall of Shame.
