I haven't read all the messages in this thread yet, but I agree with
what's been said about people not liking FS because of their lawsuits. I've
thought about switching to a different screen reader myself, even though I
like using JFW, but I'm staying with it for now because of one thing: it's
essential to my business. As far as I'm aware, JFW has the best support for
CakeWalk's Sonar, the program I use to compose my music, using either the
JSonar or CakeTalking packages. Other screen readers either don't work with
Sonar, or have only rudimentary support for the basic features. Until
someone comes up with a solution like, say CakeTalking, for Window-Eyes or
NVDA, I'm sticking with what I've got.
Now as far as games go, I like using SAPI5 in Entombed and Jim Kitchen's
games. Entombed works a lot better with Sapi5, because sound effects,
especially during battles, play at the propper time. When playing with JFW,
the sounds always play one after the other, and you have to wait for the
speech to catch up. (This is demonstrated in my review of Entombed for
Innovations.) And it's
fun to get two voices working with Jim Kitchen's games like Battleship or
Kelly John Sapergia
