I will go by Trixie2017, 

I am very excited to see this website.  I tested databases at a legal publishing company for 16 years.  I am very comfortable with doing computer troubleshooting, especially with a friend who is legally blind.  Most recently I found this website after family members' computers were hacked.  I would love to learn more about program compatibility with screen reader software.  I am fairly comfortable in the limits of what I should do when I am troubleshooting on my own computer, but, I am here to learn much more.  I want to use the comfort I have with computers and troubleshooting to help people close to me who are more vulnerable to problems.  I would love to hear from others who may have experience and knowledge regarding the compatibility of software with screen readers.  One of the areas I have encountered in trying to do troubleshooting is how to proceed in  a manner that does not jeopardize the integrity of the screen reader software.

If you help people remotely, you might look into TeamViewer (free for personal use)...



The person needing your help would just need have the TeamViewerQS (Quick Support client), but there is nothing they need to install. It would simply need to be run when you need to connect.

See the blue Quick Support buttom on the TeamViewer page.

Tutorials and videos can be found here...
