Hi Cindy

thanks for that video, he had more patience than I and the other
screen reader users on the test team had, I just gave up in
frustration and I consider myself a power screen reader user and WP developer.

on a positive note, on that link I sent someone mention that there
would be a "classic" version for us to fall back on.

sorry to hear about the violence, I would find it scary having a
family and not being able to see properly in a situation like that.

cheers

Thanks for that lead, Geof. I'm completely out of touch with all of
this right now k/t years of having to deal with extensive gang
violence in my neighborhood.

Your lead here also led to this video:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L-Vavq4qZVM

The pointer on Rian's page says, "Eric Wright, who made an excellent
video on how difficult it is to use Gutenberg with Dragon
NaturallySpeaking."

I have to put it that way because I'm not able to... cough.. access
the video to verify its content. Ah, the irony... :)

Anyway, thanks again for that lead. I'll try to find ways to help push
these messages further out into the Net.

yeah. Not just the interface - once we all

the new inhterface reminds me when I first tried
Drupal, I could not figure it out and was glad
there was WP, but if they move forward without
giving us the option of using the old interface
there is going to be some major learning curve
that might not even be possible.

tell me about it!! LOL

thankfully it isn't my default browser.

Gutenberg sucks and it will make life difficult
for us screen reader users, I beta tested and no
one on the accessibility team liked it but
apparently they are moving forward with it anyway.
My team leader quit over its development.

good you could fix that!

How do you think Gutenberg for WordPress is going to effect you?

welcome!

I kind of screwed myself because I updated to the
latest version of FF and it was not compatible
with my version of JAWS and I lost all
functionality to use it, thankfully they let me
know and told me how to fix it so I am now using
FF 60 with extended release and all is back to
normal and your webpage still works the same as with 56.0

cheers

You install a program like Xampp on your local box to get a server in
place, then WordPress on top of that. Or, if you already have a
server, then just create a database & install Wordpress & CONNECT IT
TO THE DATABASE YOU CREATED.

I've looked at both www.drupal.org and www.wordpress.org . I found the
Wordpress website much easier to use and
understand. My main question is about installation. Wordpress must be
installed on the server. Does this mean that the
server does all the work, or is there a client program that I install on my
Windows 10 computer that takes care of the
details?

Thanks,
John

I think they're both excellent. Almost 30% of the net's websites use
WordPress, & I think that's because the learning curve for WordPress
is, I think, slightly less steep than w/Drupal.
