This is what happens when a CEO tells his software people... "I want a new OS next year." "I don't care if we don't have any new ideas or improvements or if we still have not gotten the last OS right... we need to manufacture a new OS." Yup. And all that money they could make selling / servicing updates to favored past models that run customer's favored hardware and accessories. THINK GREEN.
I've tried it on the new computer I purchased, it does not allow one to control anything without alot of fuss, I wiped out windows 8 and re installed 7 just to get away from 8. You are delusional, or you work for MS, and the Screen Reader, is such a joke just plan stupid. I have an extra copy of 8.1, I'll give it to you for free.
