Again? What in the name of Bob do they think they're doing? I mean I hate Greedom Science Fiction but this is just a new low as far as I'm concerned. And it's stuff like that that has convinced me that if and when I start developing my own games (I'm making slow progress with BGT), and if I decide to add options into some of my games for screen reader support I would almost be tempted not to support JAWS. Of course I have a feeling it would be better just to use Sapi support if not go outright self-voicing. I mean if I supported one screen reader in my games I'd almost have to support the competition since there are those who are still going to be staunch users like I was until about three years ago. So I may not even bother with screen reader support in my games, especially since I really don't plan on making many games where that would really fit all that well.

Hi Louis,
Honestly I can't blame you. that's why I have not really been using or
supporting Freedom Scientific products much over the past few years.
One reason I will not, under any circomstances add Jaws support to my
game engine, as I see no need to endorce or support a greedy and
selfish company like Freedom Scientific. There are plenty of
alternatives to Jaws such as Window-Eyes, NVDA, Hal, etc that there is
no excuse to continue supporting or using Jaws. Far as I am concerned
Freedom Scientific could go out of business tomorrow and I wouldn't
shed a tear. Sorry to say, I have absolutely nothing but contempt for
Freedom Scientific and its products. As you say they have gone lawsuit
crazy and they have lost any respect I might have had for them in the
past.

Smile.

Hi all. As many of you know FS has gone lawsuit crazy this past year. There
was an unsettling case in which FS filed suit against the Foundation for
blind children in Arizona, as sighted by BLindBargains.com. To see it,
either Google Freedom Scientific Lawsuits or go to BlindBargains.com, look
under the latest Bargains heading, and look for Lawsuit Round up. HTH.
