Window-Eyes is customer driven, and its success depends on the people who use it. The following is a random testimonial from a satisfied Window-Eyes customer.
Thank you, GW Micro!
I am a visually impaired mother of three children and seven grandchildren. After being divorced at the age of 40, I decided to enroll in college to get a degree in Office Technology at the University of Montana. The school was not adapted to the visually impaired. It was quite a challenge to use the computer like the “normal” student. I first started with Vocal-Eyes. It was like giving me a new set of eyes. I could all most get around the computer like everyone else. I kept going with the fantastic help of the techs at GW Micro. No question seemed to be a dumb question. As the years went on, Window-Eyes was introduced and it was like a whole new phase of technology was in front of me. I could take a class that let me do accounting, spread sheets and even give presentations. I graduated from the University of Montana with a degree in Office technology with an emphasis on business administration assistant with honors. My final presentation was to give a demonstration of what Window-Eyes could really do. We first had the computer read a message to all the other students and then I made each student wear a blind fold. They had to sit down at the computer and do what I did on a daily basis. The teacher even struggled with just normal tasks while many of the other students were pulling the blind fold off to try and look at the screen while trying to make a spread sheet.
The change from Vocal-Eyes to Window-Eyes has truly made it possible for me to have my own business of vending. Without Window-Eyes, advanced technology, I could not get around in Excel, Word Perfect, or my bookkeeping programs.
In July of 2009, I went to GW Micro in Fort Wayne, Indiana for some computer training. Everyone at GW Micro welcomed me with open arms. The Book Sense was introduced to me. WOW! I have missed the fact I cannot read anymore because of my eye disease and the Book Sense is an amazing piece of technology. It allows those of us who cannot see to have access to digital books, read Word documents, record and even play a little bit of music.
Thanks, GW Micro for your continuing dedication to help the visually impaired.
