Hi Rob,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Boy do you make some good points here. I used to be a private beta tester for JAWS way back. Back in 2004, the anti virus program Trend Micro Internet Security was almost totally accessible. Beginning in 2008, they went from a menu driven system to an HTML type interface. However, the HTML interface was not standard. I took it upon myself to launch a kind of crusade to get the developers to realize that this change made most aspects of Trend Micro Internet Security inaccessible. You could see many of the controls, but you could not interact with check boxes or buttons.
I went round and round both with e-mails and even via 800 tech support. After about three weeks, they kept elevating me to supposedly higher levels of development. Finally, three weeks into this odyssey, they via telephone, put me in contact with the head developer. When I went through my by this time memorized description of the issue, he replied in broken English: "How Do Ya use a computer if you blind?" Nothing came of this and as far as I know, the program such as it is is still largely inaccessible.
See what I mean.
