Concern About Inaccessible Milog Field Day Logging Software

June 24, 2005 • Darrell Shandrow Hilliker

The radio club with which I am involved for Field Day uses the Milog software for the purpose of logging contacts. After downloading and trying a demo, I have found it to be completely inaccessible with either JAWS 6.2 or Window-Eyes 5.0! Though it is possible to use tab and shift+tab to navigate in some data entry situations, there is absolutely no dialogue box or menu navigation and the focus is not tracked correctly. I have contacted our Field Day coordinator to see what can be done and will very shortly be writing an e-mail to the developers of Milog to see if there is some sort of “accessibility” setting I have missed. Obviously, I will not permit anyone to barr me from Field Day participation over this technology inaccessibility issue. It’ll be interesting to see how this all works out. You can bet I’ll be keeping everyone updated.
