The following was copied from the transcript of yesterday's
"One of the most important things you're talking about a terminal and
later, my experience has been terminal in the latest that have been used
today -- I have looked at a couple of them and they do have a purse and
one of the most important feature of a blind person is to have a cursor
that can be -- it seems as if in order to meet accessibility
requirements you're fighting a major players in the simulator market
providing the ability to turn the cursor on and so from our perspective
in terms of running mainframe applications of the emulation software
does that and in addition, to that it doesn't run in such a way as to
corrupt the ability of the AT to function on a local machine, we are
satisfied. I don't think that mainframe accessibility is anything new or
reflective, it just have to be kept, whatever provisions we have in
there now that talks about the real basic stuff should be able to cover
that scenario, I think."
One of the AT packages that I have used is speech to text technology.
This package would not allow information to be entered into a on-line
mainframe application using the current iteration of the terminal
emulator. After paying significant money for scripting, data input was
made available using this AT.
Since accessibility was achieved with scripting the AT, would that mean
that the terminal emulator software is 508 conformant?
