Report cards on Windows 8 vary like the wind, and so do opinions among the blind and visually impaired community. But at least we have a place to listen to different perspectives, specifically from a low vision standpoint.
The latest High Contrast podcast produced by Serotalk was created in my absence. It’s just as well because I have not really played around with Windows 8 much (ZoomText will be releasing a new Windows 8 version in late spring).
Meanwhile, Rodney, Jeremy, and Joe weigh in with their impressions on Windows 8 from the visually impaired perspective, something you can’t always get from an in-store salesperson. Listen to High Contrast Episode 7, and the Windows 8 SPN Special, to get the scoop. They will help clarify all the new hardware and software terminology – Windows 8, Windows RT, the ARM processor, and Windows Surface. You’ll be so much the wiser when entering a sales floor full of new shiny screens beckoning your wallet.
