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.
Although I go back to Vocal-Eyes, I will just comment on Window-Eyes. WE allows me to have access to a computer and in turn this opens up a lot to me. By having access to a computer, I have access to many things I never did before. Some of the most important to me are the routine items like reading and paying bills, access to my employer's web site to get access to my pay statement and other personnel materials, preparing my own tax return, keeping a check register, enabling me to use email, Internet access, online shopping, and more. I belong to a number of organizations and their newsletters are more and more available via the computer. There have been a number of times when someone was going to provide me with some paperwork of some kind and I asked if they could send it to me by email so I could read it myself. I am able to use word processing software to keep all sorts of information and records, and write letters. That latter is a big item because I can recall the days when I used the hated typewriter and made so many errors it was too frustrating. Now I can proof and edit on my own. Considering the way computers have become such a large part of our society, without WE I would be left out. Blind people are still left out of so much, but computer access is not one of these. Being able to perform regular tasks independently is very important to me.
