Re: PASTEL

Hi List

I have no idea which programming language was used to set up Pastel. I
think someone misunderstood my original e-mail and thought I was talking
about Pascal. I have no idea about Pascal.

My original question was whether NVDA works with Pastel (the financial
accounting programme) as this programme is widely used in South Africa. I
received a reply in this regard that JAWS did not work with Pastel so it is
doubtful whether NVDA will.

However, I am still wondering if anyone has tested NVDA with Pastel to see
if it does read anything in the programme.

Kind regards

So, are you saying that you know that the Pastel accounting software is
written in (some dialect of) the Pascal language? How do you know?

Even if this is true, then presumably only the developers of the application
could "make it more accessible"; there's nothing the end-user can do.

Alternatively, maybe you're simply making a comment about some programming
language, which has nothing to do with the original question?

Dear List

Does anyone know if Pastel works with NVDA, as it is a popular fincial
accounting application in South African businesses?
