Re: Accessible voice and text chat

As has been pointed out before. This is not your Grandfathers Microsoft. They're trying hard to rectify they're mistakes and, as I see it, are doing a fantastic job. Work is actively being done on narrator unlike voiceover, which has been stagnant and not had features of real value added on the mac side for quite some time, imho.

Well hey like I said on another list. This is the new MS. Under Satia Nedella I think they are doing an awesome job. I can’t stress enough here and the other lists I’m on to use that good ole Feedback Hub. Yes kids MS does read your feedback.

Microsoft may have a better record on accessibility than "many other
companies", but depending on which other companies you compare them with, that
may not be saying much.

Also, given their overwhelming dominance in the desktop (laptop) computing
market, I think they have not done as well as they should have done in terms
of accessibility.

I think Apple were late starters in the accessibility arena, but once they
decided to go for it, they showed how it should be done, and Microsoft have
simply played catch-up, in order to avoid total embarrassment (rather like
they had to in the mid 90s when they suddenly realised that people had found
out about the Internet, and if they didn't do something quick, they'd be left
behind in the networked world).

There's a good theatrical performance about puns on in the West End.  It's a
play on words.
