My oh My! How does that person do it? Hanging onto an old xp box? Most of those old boxes died! How does that person use that old clunker online? As my windows 7 aged, I found that firefox was getting slower and slower. I had to use it for my online course. When that box kicked the bucket. I ended here on win ten. I never installed firefox on this box like I said in an earlier message. I don’t know how firefox works with win ten. It worked okay when I had my old xp clunker.

I'm in total agreement here. Not updating your screen reader or operating system is the dummest thing anybody could do. If anybody refuses to upgrade or update a screen reader, then they're just asking for trouble.

I would like to comment here, and I hope my comments are not out of line.
Firstly, to not update your screenreader, browser or operating system is inherently flawed thinking.
Quite apart from anything else, updating these things plugs up security
holes and exploits that were found, hense the updates in the first place.
While updates have their own inherent bugs, issues, holes and the like,
they are constantly being plugged, patched and fixed when they are
noticed, or insiders, beta testers and developers find or are notified
There are some arguments for not updating, and while they are valid,
they are not always practical in that you become susceptible to the
In the case of windows10, it is not too much of a steep learning curb
from windows7 and in many respects provides you with better performance
and once you get the hang of it, a more efficient way of performing
everyday tasks, as well as tweaking and peaking settings.
Here's where I may come under fire, because it is my personal belief,
that to not update or patch your system, especially in this day and age,
where crackers, and please note the term I used, as opposed to hackers,
are also getting smarter, is the height of folly and stupidity.
I appologise for my harsh words on the subject, but it behooves us as
competent computer operators to insure our system is up to date. even if
we are not all competent computer operators, it is on us to insure that
someone with the requisite knowledge maintains our systems so that they
always run smoothly and efficiently.
