Where in the world are you?

Dondi
 

Hi Everybody,



I hear from time to time of people on the list who are from many places
around the world. I was just wondering if those far and near to me would
like to say where they are from?

I'm from:

Phoenix, Arizona United States, the call my city the valley of the sun.

Karen,

That depends upon which guide dog school you attend. All my dogs have
been

from th Seeing Eye where you pay $150 for your first dog and $50 for all
replacements. This is the same price structure they have used since
their
inception in 1929. The Lions have nothing to do with this school. When
you leave the school, noone, including the Seeing Eye., can tell you
what
to do with your doog which if I am correct, is not the case with some of
the other schools. You and you alone own your dog.

And yes, it costs thousands of dollars for them to train your animal.
The
above costs above cover all your expenses, including transportation from
anywhere in the U.S. ... and I can tell you, this school treats you
fabulously and with a great deal of respect.

Sandy... whose 3rd dog, Dory, sadly died this past Christmas Eve.

I don't agree with piracy but agree that jaws and most other assistive
devices are crazally expensive. If you really can't aford jaws then
use NVDA, it's totally free and feeture wise it's rite up there with
jaws, in fact there's some semi accessible software which I can access
better with NVDA than with jaws. Something else somebody mentioned,
does it really cost $3800 to get a guide dog in the US? If I
understand rite, that's crazy. In South africa we pay about the
equivalent of $15 or $20 but then again for stuff like jaws we pay
about equivalent of $1500. We don't easally get government bersaries
for assistive devices but can claim assistive devices back from the
government through income tax but you must still have the cash to fork
out and then wait a year or more before you can claim it back.

The fact is that there are thousands, probably milions of blind people

This is a vicious circle for most, since without the independence that
computers bring, they will struggle to make money, to get a job, to

I think a petition by JAWS users should carry some weight with the firm.

Re: Crack For Jaws 64 Bit Win 7

epierce@...
 

Dave, thanks for the excellent insights.

Ambrose,

You seem to have imagined that I said that JAWS never works for anybody, ever.

What I was actually reporting was a specific set of problems, and attempts at solving them, in a specific place, with a specific JAWS site license, under specific circumstances.

The reality is that DOS/Windows was never designed to do something as weird as install a screen reader "driver". Doing such things is nothing but an inelegant kludge from an engineering perspective, and is just asking for trouble.

The lack of industry standards for accessible technology is appalling, as are all the bureaucrats that collect fat checks while telling everyone that AT products are "so cool". The sociological myth structures that have been built up are largely a feature of distorted market dynamics and unspoken institutional fear of disability lawyers. Lots of people are in on the scam, the vendors simply attempt to satisfy the resulting business demand on a cr*ppy architecture.

The error was seen on multiple models of Dell business class machines, with various different methods of installing Windows 7 "Ultimate" (Enterprise), 64 bit. Windows was hand installed from .ISO media. Then it was installed from an industrial strength network imaging platform (Altiris). Central computing has some undocumented "security" features that are mandatory, so we have to live with that.

Extreme care was taken to install Windows 7 in as "bare metal" a manner as possible, including taking excruciating pains to install Dell hardware drivers exactly according to manufacturer's instructions.

Office 2003, 2007 and 2010 were installed in a completely standard manner.

Microsoft anti-virus was installed, as per organizational standards.

Unfortunately, there is also an organizational standard to install the "Kbox" inventory control client (and SCCM client), but it isn't apparent that that would be a problem with JAWS. I do not have direct contact with vendor support.

One visually impaired consultant who is a accessibility tech expert provided guidance: Only AMD/ATI video cards should be used with JAWS, at specific "standard, native" screen resolutions (1280 x 1024?).

Lots of stuff could have gone wrong. If the product is so fragile that some subtle hardware or driver install-order issue (or whatever else short of supernatural forces) causes it to not work correctly on some hardware, or in some software configurations, in a professional IT shop, then there is something very wrong with the product. If that is the case, the vendor should only support their product on "certified" hardware. Which would be a VAST RELIEF to most local IT support people in organizations who would then be able to write up procurement justifications for more expensive, vendor solutions that ACTUALLY WORK.

I have seen miserable results from multiple consultants/experts/vendors for 20+ years in the accessible tech industry, including some awful scams and pathetic bureaucracy.

The vendor has published tech support documentation that admits that JAWS does not properly support attachment viewing in Outlook 2010. Several months ago on this list, the exact symptoms: inconsistent viewing experience of email message bodies by JAWS -- were reported by several other customers (see list archives).

I'm a sighted technician, and I saw the product failure over and over for many months and heard complaints and frustration from a visually impaired user who had to endure doing tests of a variety of different configurations.

The user, a senior disabled advocate, reported hearing much unhappiness from other leading figures in the disability rights movement at national conferences.

The architecture is junk and the products are junk. The society is dysfunctional, the business models are bad and the customers brainwashed.

Other than that, everything is fine and any other problems are almost certainly caused purely by "operator error".

Have a nice day.

Subject: Crack For Jaws 64 Bit Win 7

I'm new to the list, not discernibly disabled, but somewhat familiar with
disability issues (labor activist). JAWS' poor quality has been a concern
for several years. The last time I saw JAWS work well was on hardware from
the Windows XP, MS Office 2003 era, using JAWS 7 or 8.

JAWS 10, 11 and 12 on Windows 7 (64 bit) does not work reliably with Outlook
2010, as was documented on this list several months ago. Attempts to revert
to Office 2007 and 2003 showed same problems: JAWS does not seem to work
well with any Win7-Outlook combination, at least 64 bit. The published
response from FS tech support was inadequate.

Back to the topic of this thread: I read this whole thread, did not see a
technical definition for a "Crack", so here is one:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Software_cracking

Summary: "Cracking" usually refers to removal of software protection.

My general impression of Computer Accessibility (for disabled people) is
that current "legacy" architectures of operating systems such as MS Windows,
and possibly hardware (Intel), are inadequate (accessibility is "not by
design").
Thus, poor quality products, and poor business models, are perhaps
inevitable. Government support (including public education) in such
circumstances probably creates, or reinforces, unhealthy market distortions.

In other words, FS knows that government programs are "held hostage" by
accessibility requirements, and thus have to "buy something", even if it
does not work well, to "get off the hook" and not be sued by disability
lawyers.

Such a "system" creates unintended side effects, including a lack of care
about whether or not disabled people are actually getting good products and
support. Bureaucrats tend to have a "style over substance" approach, and are
more interested in creating the appearance of accessibility than the
reality. This is part of the politically correct mentality that prevails in
the younger generation: more concern with thought policing than competency.

Again, it seems inevitable that even if the people working for accessibility
companies are good, caring people (or were at some point), the
organizational culture they work in, and the corresponding management
climate, is warped by unhealthy market forces and unethical choices by
business executives.

On capitalism in general, and ethics -- capitalism as it is currently
constituted, Corporatist/State Capitalism, has become predatory in many
respects (I'm anarcho-libertarian, not leftist). The largest failures of
ethics in the area of economics are done in the name of capitalism, not
because of poor blind people in 3rd world countries, or poor people
anywhere, looking for "cracked" versions of JAWS software. State Capitalism
is "socialism for rich people". It is a horribly rigged system, deeply
corrupt and dysfunctional, and destructive of democracy and culture.

I've been told by people that have worked in disabled access for 30+ years
that there is very little respect for FS and most of the other accessibility
tech businesses by senior members of the advocacy community, rather the
access tech companies (at least screen readers) are seen as little more than
necessary evils.

I personally place most of the blame on Microsoft. How could a company that
has made $100s of billions in profit not do the proper research into
creating a "good" accessibility architecture for its products? The answer
might be that since no such thing is possible because of fundamental flaws
in the legacy architecture, MS simply does not want the bad "PR" and support
headaches involved in supporting accessibility products. They are probably
happy that someone else has taken the market niche and all its problems.

Any feedback is appreciated.

However, when I checked the results it didn't show any results. It should show the amount that I put entered and the list of possible currency codes. I tried some other conversions and that didn't work either. A big waste of My time.. It's easier just to use Google.

Karen,

That depends upon which guide dog school you attend. All my dogs have
been

from th Seeing Eye where you pay $150 for your first dog and $50 for all
replacements. This is the same price structure they have used since
their
inception in 1929. The Lions have nothing to do with this school. When
you leave the school, noone, including the Seeing Eye., can tell you
what
to do with your doog which if I am correct, is not the case with some of
the other schools. You and you alone own your dog.

And yes, it costs thousands of dollars for them to train your animal.
The
above costs above cover all your expenses, including transportation from
anywhere in the U.S. ... and I can tell you, this school treats you
fabulously and with a great deal of respect.

Sandy... whose 3rd dog, Dory, sadly died this past Christmas Eve.

i was told the dog school charges one dollar for the dog, but it cost

No, Nickus, the guide dog schools give the dogs totally free to the
final users.
But they spent a lot of money since the dog is a puppy to the final
training stage.

I don't agree with piracy but agree that jaws and most other assistive
devices are crazally expensive. If you really can't aford jaws then
use NVDA, it's totally free and feeture wise it's rite up there with
jaws, in fact there's some semi accessible software which I can access
better with NVDA than with jaws. Something else somebody mentioned,
does it really cost $3800 to get a guide dog in the US? If I
understand rite, that's crazy. In South africa we pay about the
equivalent of $15 or $20 but then again for stuff like jaws we pay
about equivalent of $1500. We don't easally get government bersaries
for assistive devices but can claim assistive devices back from the
government through income tax but you must still have the cash to fork
out and then wait a year or more before you can claim it back.

Subject: Crack For Jaws 64 Bit Win 7

I'm new to the list, not discernibly disabled, but somewhat familiar with
disability issues (labor activist). JAWS' poor quality has been a concern
for several years. The last time I saw JAWS work well was on hardware from
the Windows XP, MS Office 2003 era, using JAWS 7 or 8.

JAWS 10, 11 and 12 on Windows 7 (64 bit) does not work reliably with Outlook
2010, as was documented on this list several months ago. Attempts to revert
to Office 2007 and 2003 showed same problems: JAWS does not seem to work
well with any Win7-Outlook combination, at least 64 bit. The published
response from FS tech support was inadequate.

Back to the topic of this thread: I read this whole thread, did not see a
technical definition for a "Crack", so here is one:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Software_cracking

Summary: "Cracking" usually refers to removal of software protection.

My general impression of Computer Accessibility (for disabled people) is
that current "legacy" architectures of operating systems such as MS Windows,
and possibly hardware (Intel), are inadequate (accessibility is "not by
design").
Thus, poor quality products, and poor business models, are perhaps
inevitable. Government support (including public education) in such
circumstances probably creates, or reinforces, unhealthy market distortions.

In other words, FS knows that government programs are "held hostage" by
accessibility requirements, and thus have to "buy something", even if it
does not work well, to "get off the hook" and not be sued by disability
lawyers.

Such a "system" creates unintended side effects, including a lack of care
about whether or not disabled people are actually getting good products and
support. Bureaucrats tend to have a "style over substance" approach, and are
more interested in creating the appearance of accessibility than the
reality. This is part of the politically correct mentality that prevails in
the younger generation: more concern with thought policing than competency.

Again, it seems inevitable that even if the people working for accessibility
companies are good, caring people (or were at some point), the
organizational culture they work in, and the corresponding management
climate, is warped by unhealthy market forces and unethical choices by
business executives.

On capitalism in general, and ethics -- capitalism as it is currently
constituted, Corporatist/State Capitalism, has become predatory in many
respects (I'm anarcho-libertarian, not leftist). The largest failures of
ethics in the area of economics are done in the name of capitalism, not
because of poor blind people in 3rd world countries, or poor people
anywhere, looking for "cracked" versions of JAWS software. State Capitalism
is "socialism for rich people". It is a horribly rigged system, deeply
corrupt and dysfunctional, and destructive of democracy and culture.

I've been told by people that have worked in disabled access for 30+ years
that there is very little respect for FS and most of the other accessibility
tech businesses by senior members of the advocacy community, rather the
access tech companies (at least screen readers) are seen as little more than
necessary evils.

I personally place most of the blame on Microsoft. How could a company that
has made $100s of billions in profit not do the proper research into
creating a "good" accessibility architecture for its products? The answer
might be that since no such thing is possible because of fundamental flaws
in the legacy architecture, MS simply does not want the bad "PR" and support
headaches involved in supporting accessibility products. They are probably
happy that someone else has taken the market niche and all its problems.

Any feedback is appreciated.

Re: Crack For Jaws 64 Bit Win 7

That's blatentley false, I use Jaws 11,12,and 13 with outlook 2007
beautifully, outlook 2010 is just a bad program but 2007 is still
attainable and works beautifully,if you have tried it and it still didn't
work, then it must be opperater error

Subject: Crack For Jaws 64 Bit Win 7

I'm new to the list, not discernibly disabled, but somewhat familiar with
disability issues (labor activist). JAWS' poor quality has been a concern
for several years. The last time I saw JAWS work well was on hardware from
the Windows XP, MS Office 2003 era, using JAWS 7 or 8.

JAWS 10, 11 and 12 on Windows 7 (64 bit) does not work reliably with Outlook
2010, as was documented on this list several months ago. Attempts to revert
to Office 2007 and 2003 showed same problems: JAWS does not seem to work
well with any Win7-Outlook combination, at least 64 bit. The published
response from FS tech support was inadequate.

Back to the topic of this thread: I read this whole thread, did not see a
technical definition for a "Crack", so here is one:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Software_cracking

Summary: "Cracking" usually refers to removal of software protection.

My general impression of Computer Accessibility (for disabled people) is
that current "legacy" architectures of operating systems such as MS Windows,
and possibly hardware (Intel), are inadequate (accessibility is "not by
design").
Thus, poor quality products, and poor business models, are perhaps
inevitable. Government support (including public education) in such
circumstances probably creates, or reinforces, unhealthy market distortions.

In other words, FS knows that government programs are "held hostage" by
accessibility requirements, and thus have to "buy something", even if it
does not work well, to "get off the hook" and not be sued by disability
lawyers.

Such a "system" creates unintended side effects, including a lack of care
about whether or not disabled people are actually getting good products and
support. Bureaucrats tend to have a "style over substance" approach, and are
more interested in creating the appearance of accessibility than the
reality. This is part of the politically correct mentality that prevails in
the younger generation: more concern with thought policing than competency.

Again, it seems inevitable that even if the people working for accessibility
companies are good, caring people (or were at some point), the
organizational culture they work in, and the corresponding management
climate, is warped by unhealthy market forces and unethical choices by
business executives.

On capitalism in general, and ethics -- capitalism as it is currently
constituted, Corporatist/State Capitalism, has become predatory in many
respects (I'm anarcho-libertarian, not leftist). The largest failures of
ethics in the area of economics are done in the name of capitalism, not
because of poor blind people in 3rd world countries, or poor people
anywhere, looking for "cracked" versions of JAWS software. State Capitalism
is "socialism for rich people". It is a horribly rigged system, deeply
corrupt and dysfunctional, and destructive of democracy and culture.

I've been told by people that have worked in disabled access for 30+ years
that there is very little respect for FS and most of the other accessibility
tech businesses by senior members of the advocacy community, rather the
access tech companies (at least screen readers) are seen as little more than
necessary evils.

I personally place most of the blame on Microsoft. How could a company that
has made $100s of billions in profit not do the proper research into
creating a "good" accessibility architecture for its products? The answer
might be that since no such thing is possible because of fundamental flaws
in the legacy architecture, MS simply does not want the bad "PR" and support
headaches involved in supporting accessibility products. They are probably
happy that someone else has taken the market niche and all its problems.

Any feedback is appreciated.

In one of those surrealistic political moments in life, Rick Perry talks about it on Fox News:

A more in-depth analysis of how markets are distorted by political corruption:

Again, if one wishes to understand how tech companies operate in the Big Government/Big Business ecosystem, it is necessary to recognize the deep moral and spiritual bankruptcy that prevails.

I wonder if that was just a freudian slip or if you really did mean
"vulture" rather than "venture"? Made me smile nonetheless.

Horrors, people might actually demand that banks and vulture capitalists
stop operating Wall Street like a casino operation.

Conservatives locate evil in the individual, and demand personal
responsibility.

Liberals locate evil in social structures, and demand social
responsibility.

A mature model of human psychology would seem to point to a Holistic model
in which the two paradigms are integrated.

Cy,

Medieval culture under all religions is rooted in mythic-conformist paradigms. Such culture does not protect individual freedoms to any great extent, and individuals are thus subject to hostile collectives. Innovation was inhibited and scientific rationalism was seen as dangerous.

The dark ages followed the collapse of the (pagan) Roman Empire, which had no "church" in the Christian sense, but did have elaborate ritual belief systems that supported imperialism, slavery and war. The Magna Carta was written in 1215, during a period of "church control".

Reforms toward representative institutions (Fueros, Cortes) were spread by the Abbey of Cluny into the Gothic Kingdoms of Spain, primarily along the along the Camino de Santiago de Compostela (pilgrim's route) during the 500 years before Columbus' journey to the New World. It was only when Absolutism became philosophically trendy (late 1400s) amongst the greedy, power hungry Aristocracy that these local forms of church supported representative institutions were abolished. Many churches were taken over by secular rule and used to oppress local culture. (Leonard Liggio)

Capitalism developed via vast colonial schemes of land theft from indigenous people, and it has not outgrown the tendency toward exploitation and theft, in spite of all the fancy lip service about "democracy". Working people have never gotten better rights without fighting oppression.

Perhaps this will illumine how the executive classes that run the tech industry really operate, and how they view customers and employees.

Wog,
Your point about pirating music and movies is very well put. Stealing is
stealing is stealing is stealing.
I do, however, agree that there should be some way to make a decent,
reliable screen reader for those who need it.
The freedom of information and knowledge a computer can impart is a "right"
to any human otherwise we should have stayed in the Dark Ages where
knowledge and education was strictly controlled by the Church.
