Re: Microsoft's Own Security Chief Says: STOP using Internet Explorer

 

I think we need to move away from generic statements such as “that product is fast becoming pretty awful in terms of reliability” and many others. Jaws as well as NVDA are dealing with a lot of changes in how they can access information as Windows 10 is moving to wherever it is going and with Microsoft breaking things in Office on a relatively regular bases. I am pretty sure if, for example, Jaws suddenly doesn’t automatically speak the results of the Windows 10 Calculator that it is not because of Jaws but because there was some change in Windows 10. The same goes with speaking address suggestions in Outlook and other things in Office. It often goes from working to not working without Jaws even releasing an update which would indicate Microsoft has changed something behind the scenes in Office and now Jaws and/or NVDA has to catch up to it or Microsoft gets notified of it and introduces a fix.

I could browse the archives of lists like this and produce statements like what Dan said going back year after year after year.

As for Richard’s statement about Window Eyes being the only true competition to Jaws I also would disagree with that. Window Eyes had such a small piece of the market that while they were an alternative, I wouldn’t consider them serious competition just as I don’t consider Linux competition to Windows, not in the same way as, for example, Ford being a competitor to GMC or vice versa.

If any screenreader is competition to Jaws it is NVDA. However, my observations seem to indicate that a absolutely vast majority of blind people who are employed in a challenging job which demands them to be productive are using Jaws because it still is the gold standard and in my opinion Vispero is very aggressively working on making it the best it can be. They seem to have a pretty dedicated and qualified team as well as the resources to put into Jaws development and I think more influence can be brought into play with companies like Microsoft by one larger organization like Vispero than 2 or 3 smaller ones.

Dare I say it, JAWS has major issues of its own.  So while I agree that Microsoft has things to deal with , before I am too critical of them, I want to be certain that the assistive technology is not part of the problem.  For me I would support a competitor to JAWS for that product is fast becoming pretty awful in terms of reliability.

I hate to say it, but if you considered Window-Eyes to be "the only true competition to Jaws" then they had (and have) no real competition.  Window-Eyes was to the screen reader market much like what MS-Edge is to the web browser market - a distant also-ran.

This is not a comment about Window-Eyes functionality or utility, but this acquisition would and could never have taken place had AI Squared fought it, and they weren't about to fight it because they simply weren't winning in the marketplace.

I'd say that NVDA is giving JAWS a better run for its money (while not demanding any in return) than Window-Eyes did.   As of the release of Version 1809 of Windows 10 Microsoft Narrator has announced itself as a very serious competitor to any other screen reader, and Microsoft is far from "done" with Narrator yet.

Oh sorry, I didn't realise it was only temporary. Bummer. But they'll have to do something now, since the new editor is not very accessible at this point.

But, Jaws has its very good points and Im learning to live with it and hoping Narrator can continue to improve, along with NVDA.

Not to mention how much trouble we have had with the updates. I had trouble with the updates this week, and there was no way I was going to be able to get through all the screens they had with wanting me to accept or not accept this and that about Microsoft. I could not even get Narrator turned on to go through them, no how. Fortunately, I was able to get someone to help, but only because they were coming to help me that day anyway. The only thing that I could do is shut the computer down with (windows x) and (u).
Blessings and All the Very Best,

from googling, this is mentioned about the .web format:

Web video can be confusing, but we're going to make it easy. The key
to understanding web video is realizing that there are actually three
different parts:

1. The file format that holds the video, like .mp4, .flv, .f4v, .ogv, or
.avi
2. The video format (aka codec), like H.264, MPEG-4, or Theora
3. The player that makes it available to your site visitors, such as the
Adobe Flash Plugin, or the new <video></video> tag.

to boil down all of the detail involved, the summary given is:

1. There is no one format that works on everything (browsers in
different OSs).
2. So there are a few choices.

Our client database only works with IE. Talk about out of date.
At least we can use other browsers for everything else.

Probably would be a PR disaster if they did that, I’m guessing.

 

It’s the only browser allowed at my workplace to this day. Yes, this has been brought up, but they’re not budging.

So why don't they just remove it from windows then?
I bet it's still there in the next build!
