Re: top posting

Richard Turner <richardturner42@...>

If only people would actually quote the message they are replying to.
So many posts of late say something like that is true; or I agree; but the rest of the thread is not quoted so you cannot be sure what they were talking about.
So, not only is top posting preferred by most screen reader users, but also allowing the previous thread to remain in case you are coming in late and are interested to know the context.
Any more, if the reply starts with the last message in a thread and it looks like they probably bottom posted, I just delete it and move on.
The same with messages with no context.

Many, if not most sighted folk prefer bottom posting.
To them, it makes sense.
Sighted folk can simply look past all the past info and glance down to the
new information.
I think some Blind folk like to do this because they may feel that it
normalizes them to some degree because most sighted users do this.
I think anyone would be hard pressed to find a screenreader user who prefers
bottom-posting, because we are forced to reread the non-relevant information
at the top.
Usually when we read a message of a particular thread, we have been
following the thread and we just want to read the next reply and that is why
I call that non-relevant.
And if we come into a thread late, it is no big deal to arrow down to
discover what the above message was referring to.
I'm bringing this topic up because I have read some bottom-posted messages
on this list in the past and the moderators prefer that we top-post.

That may be so, but I am not in the habit of searching for a reply which
should be at the top of the message,
and nor should anyone else!
Refer to the list guidelines for proper posting practices.

Hi, there was a message however it was right near the bottom.

Larry was commenting on the cost for his jaws compared to the price quoted
for the other person.

Larry, the $90 offer is only available in US at the moment but they are
hoping to at some stage open it up to all countries.

Hope this helps.

If you have something constructive to say, then say it, do not re-post what
has already been said.

I have a friend who is running windows 7 with
jaws 14 installed.  Currently jaws 14 is set to startup when the computer
I gave her my old cd of jaws 17 with a valid authorization.
She has got jaws 17 installed but not
authorized   so she is still using 14 and 17 is sitting on her computer.
My question is how can she authorize 17.  She
gets like oh no I have no speech what do I do!
Basically because she doesn’
