This is absolutely huge! Jeff Bishop reports that Serotek has opened the doors of employment wide by introducing the ability for a blind person to easily gain remote access to another person’s computer without need of that person having any installed assistive technology! This means that many private industry jobs may be opened up to the blind in the very near future. The functionality this technology provides is equivalent to GoToAssist, Microsoft’s Remote Assistance and similar products and services already enjoyed by the sighted! Please read RIM and RAM – opening more doors for professionals and get ready for a revolution in remote accessibility!
I’ll have much more to say about Serotek’s new remote access technology in the next week or so. Please stay tuned!
I’m curious as to whether JAWS has solved the problems with remote assistance? I have tried to connect to another user for remote assistance, but JAWS commands are not available remotely… seems the mouse is the only way to perform most tasks during a remote assistance call?
