Re: GUIDE - issues and Q&A FROM FCLARK917

THIS JUST IN FROM OUR FRIEND FCLARK917

 

Hello James, I was cruising the board and saw where you were asking about Guide. I tossed in a web search for 'Guide accessible software' and got this link http://http://www.yourdolphin.com/index.asp?home=454/index.asp?home=454 

I've never heard of this and as far as I know, I don't know anyone who uses it or has heard of it either.

From what I've found, it works on Microsoft from XP up to Win-8 at least. There are different products along with a package called SuperNova. All together, the packages allow screen reading, voice control, magnification and one of them is supposed to be able to take those blasted image formatted pdf files and render the print out of them! If that's the case all I can say is holy carp! I found their Facebook page too, https://www.facebook.com/DolphinComputerAccess. I haven't found a users forum nor any independent reviews except for just one or two on the Facebook page.

Re: GUIDE - issues and Q&A FROM FCLARK917

Thanks for your work on digging into Guide.

Guide as descrived by the only user I have been able to make contact with idoes all of the things you listed , but, more importantly it functions as a Voice Over Menu system with no mouse needed.

Apparently, they have divided Internet access into about 8 or 9 menu items..  So you Arrow down and a voice sings out the Menu Item and you either Hit enter or the up/down Arrow.

For instance, you can arrow down to News Reader and hit enter

Ths presents a menu of News sources.  Arrrow down till it speaks "Huuffington Post and hit enter.

 

But since I don't have that product, I need someone who has Guide to log in and help with any support questions.

I, of course, am particularly interested in folks that know how to make Guide navigate Comcast based web pages.
