Re: [BCAB] connecting two windows home computers Neela 27 Nov 2012 10:21 GMT

I have used this package in conjunction with Mo, on the list who has it.  My
screen reader is Supernova and as I understand Mo has no vision.  He was
able to sort the issues on my computer a number of times, sessions not
lasting longer than say 20 minutes and always with 100% success.  At all
times I could hear what Mo was doing.  I do recall him saying this was the
cost also.  Pity this cannot be made available to those of you requiring it
through a Grant or access to work.  Not everyone using it may be in paid
employment but using it as a means of self-employment.

Hi,

I've tested & will soon be buying a subscription for work of Seroteks Remote
Incident Manager

http://www.serotek.com/remote-incident-manager-rim

At £500 a year + about £275 setup though it's not cheap!  Especially when
Light Dependents can uses something like VNC through Chrome for free.

RIM is good though.  If there's no screen-reader at the end-users side, it
will let you use System Access, & what I'll most likely do is drop-in NVDA
and install it remotely to be used during my RIM sessions.

Regards,
Barry.

Hi Matthew,

Looks plausible, however, don't seem to be able to read edit box for testing
prog with team viewer's own computers.

Anybody else tried this prog or anything else for remote support.

I use a program called Team Viewer.  It is free to install, all your friend
needs to do is give you the code from the screen.

That being said I have to admit I have not tried it with a screen reader
yet!

I want to help a friend with a computer prob they have.

Both of us have windows 7 home.

What's the best way of setting up a connection so as I can see their screen.

Tom
