Windows Vista will be one of the most accessible operating systems that Microsoft has ever released, the company said Monday. New features for those with disabilities take into account three years of research by Microsoft, and is being led by Rob Sinclair.

Sinclair is the new director of Microsoft's Accessible Technology Group. "Developing new ways to make technology easier for people to use has always been one of my passions," he says. "I've really been pursuing the same goals throughout my career."

There is good reason for Microsoft to focus heavily on accessibility. A commissioned study by Forrester found that 57 percent of working-age computer users benefit from such technology. These features are especially helpful for those with vision, hearing and mobility problems.

Hmm yesterday when i was using vista i noticed that my cd and dvd drives were missing from the folder "computer" and in the device manager they have little ! next to them :s they did work fine the day before. I cant even update the drivers because its gives the error that its not connected or its corrupted but they are fine on XP. Sumthing that needs sorting there. I cant Install anything from cd's now

happened to me too but with xp... its a shoot and miss for me whether or not i get a "drive B:\" as my second floppy... i dont have one, but i guess microsoft is making a recommendation

also, i put a copy of xp on a machine and it didnt detect the cd drive... just reinstalled it (via start-up)

but have you checked your BIOS for the info on the cd drive?

If Vista loses your drivers it is best to have them saved on another partition somewhere. Remeber Vista is in Beta and right now they are forceing XP Drivers to work with it. When Vista gets released it will have its own set of drivers. So the current drivers wont work and you will have to contact your device manufactorer to get drivers that will work.
