This is a test of the System Access To Go service. It’s a pretty cool idea. As a blink, I always feel sort of tied to my own computer. Why? Because my computer talks, and others don’t. Well, now, blinks can make any modern computer talk. All they need is a computer with a sound card, an internet connection, and a relatively modern copy of Internet Explorer, and ta da! They have a screen-reader. All they need to do is go to the website above, and follow the prompts. They’re not exactly precise, so sometimes it says press alt r when it’s not quite ready. Also, you might have to cheat and snap on narrator for a second if it looks like it’s not proceeding. If you have a firewall, the first time you run this, that will come up and stop it in its tracks, so you have to ok it through your firewall. Plus I’m running into some troubles that no one else can seem to duplicate. But as soon as those are fixed, I’ll be a happy woman. A happy woman with a screen-reader whenever I want it!
Apparently, this is free of charge. I don’t know how long that will hold, but get it while it’s hot!
Alrighty, I’m off to see if I can post this! If you see it, I guess I did.
