From time to time i will be doing sort of like a Q&A session just to see what people would do if they had to face a disability that may have crop up in a period of time. If anybody has any questions for me or anybody else please just ask but please, if you do ask please be respectful when asking.

Sorry John, I thought I had replied to this. Very much depends on the problem, and where you are, and how much money you have.

LH,

Very true, but i didn't want to invade someone's privacy on how much they had or anything like that. I just thought i would try to create some buzz for this forum.

I guess it depends on the disability. I have a poor vision problem. But fortunately there are a lot of Windows tools and options that help me to operate relatively normally.
