[13:13] Learning to program for the blind

Daniel Hubbell, who drives accessibility on Windows and he spoke with a blind developer who provided this: Unfortunately there isn’t a short answer. In my experience both JAWS and NVDA work partly and both have issues. And this is the challenge when you are trying to learn a new skill because you are learning both the skill and the accessibility of the environment. To be clear Narrator, Window-eyes and everything else have issues. 

The best resource I know is the program-l email list where many developers who are blind exchange information. http://www.freelists.org/list/program-l

    Hey guys, Leon from IronKey here. Thanks for the positive message on Windows To Go - as you can guess we really like it. Send me note if you'd like to try out the hardware encrypted version - happy for you all to check it out.

    Gov Maharaj says at around [22:25] that it is possible to use Windows To Go with the Pro SKU of windows. Am I missing something, did this get added in windows 10 or do he simply mis-speak?

    I am unable to find the app in my copy of windows 10 pro, but I am able to pull it up at work in the enterprise version. Is there another way that Gov is creating these flash drives?

    I would love to have a portable carbon copy of my system, but I am unlikely to buy an personal enterprise license of windows just for this feature.

    when you use Rufus you can also use Home or Pro to create a WinToGo drive:
