    I am visually impaired. I use assistive technology (Zoomtext/Fusion) on my computer. Ham Radio Deluxe will not load when I have the assistive technology program running. I can quit the assistive technology, start HRD, and then restart Zoomtext and all seems to work fine.

    I was just wondering if anyone else runs Zoomtext/JAWS/Fusion with HRD, and if they've experienced similar issues. I contacted HRD, and they seem disinterested in helping me resolve the issue.

    To be clear, the programs run fine together. I just wish I wouldn't need to close my assistive technology and then open HRD and reopen Zoomtext.

    I haven't worked with this particular combination but I have helped a family member using Zoomtext. I recall a problem with a program that wanted to start in full screen mode when Zoomtext was already running. Check to make sure HRD is windowed, not full screen.

    The start sequence may mater, Because of how a Wedge works.

    Also consider just having HRD start at bootup and leave it running. On a limited test it handles the rig powering off and on OK.
