Hello to everyone,
Here is something that is on my mind and needs more priorty by the programmers from Yamaha to make the Montage/MODx more accessible for visuall impaired/blind users.
One thing visually impaired users need is to have a Speech engine on board that will help us to make Montage/MODX accessible. Because Yamaha had a chance to use Speech engines for Linux and the ScreenReading technology You can get for free for Linux I think.
I know that Native Instruments is working hard to make there tools accessible by using a Mac or PC. But we need a hardware instrument that give us a chance to put our hands on all the parameters and the utility-mode to load and save data.
Only John Melas and the team of Skylife are working hard, to make there tools for visually impaired/blind users accessible. John investes a lot of time to make this happen in the next months. And the team of Skylife programmed there Sample Robot a lot accessible too. But I think that was a co incidence. But very helpful.
But as a visually impaired/blind user You can not program Your own Arpeggios and bring it into the Montage/MoDX. That's a shame. Because Yamaha develope a bad programmed Montage/ModX Connect engine that is not accessible on PC. And on Mac You can't see any information about a button function. It's a shame too. But Mac is showing, there is a button but not what kind of button it is.
If the programmers read the manuals for making there software accessible for PC and Mac they can bring accessible versions of there tools.
I know that Stevie Wonder and others are using Motif instruments and I know some guys who are using the Montage/Modx too but I can not understand that Yamaha programmers are closing there eyes. I hope that will be better in the next months and years.
And I hope that the developers from Yamaha will read this thread carefully.
