Yesterday was a bad day. One of those days that started off with a lot of promise then went down hill rapidly.
Scripts have been written for my screen reader so that I can access a new call management system that we’ll be using at work. So, new shiny scripts in hand, I went for the training yesterday. I’m not sure where I stand legally if I say what I really think of the guys who wrote the scripts and the company they work for on this page, so suffice it to say that they are total cowboys and the scripts are nowhere near complete or fit for purpose. I’d have no hesitation in dissuading anyone to use this particular company and those people who I have made acquaintance or friendship with in the access technology industry will know that it’s not you!
So a whole day’s training lost and scripting still not done. The go live date for the system is 13th December. I had hoped to be up to speed with the programme, same as everyone else, but I guess that was too much to wish for.
A few minutes after I came out of the training non-event, I got a call from the optometry department at the hospital. They can’t do anything further with that contact lense I had made for me. So, there’s a lens sitting there that would help, and they’re not going to do anything further with it.
There are always barriers, and people wonder why I stress.
