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.
I am Christine M. Afrom Malta. I have recently turned 30! I am a very active person. I am married and have two lovely twin daughters who are 10. I have been blind for the past ten years due to complications with diabetes and retinal problems. I have a small percent of vision in just one eye.. When I started losing my eye sight I was devastated as I am still young and had so much more to look forward to the future. I had a good job at a bank and I was a bookworm. Wherever I went I always carried a book with me as it was so relaxing and at the same time I learnt a lot. I felt so bad when I couldn't read and I started realizing how we take our senses for granted as long as they serve us without trouble. I felt it very depressing and humiliating haveing to ask some one to read my letters, mail, correspondence and even the simple task to write a letter. I had the support of friends and family but I had lost all my previous independence.
Then one day a member of the Maltese Commission for persons with a disability approached me and encouraged me to start learning breille and learn to use the computer all over again with the use of the screen reader. I couldn't believe my luck!!!! I had learned all the knowledge required to use Windows, Microsoft Office and browse the Internet within a few months!! Today I spend a lot of time on my PC as I do all the correspondence myself. I pay bills, read and reply to emils, surf the net and download info to help my children in school projects. I also use MSN and am working on opening my own Facebook account. Thanks to Window-Eyes, it is as if my eyesight has been restored to me. I have got my valued freedom back. I can start being ambitious again and plan on going back to a decent job for which I have all the necessary qualifications. My friends and strangers are all amazed by how a blind person like me can do all the normal things in life like printing a letter or reading and replying to an email just like sighted people with the commodity of technological advance! I have so much I have to thank you for. I really appreciate the effort and constant work you guys do, to help persons like me live normally and comfortably and do all the things all sighted persons can do.
