Same here. Other than a few pieces of access software like Jaws,
Megadots, and Openbook as well as a braille printer I purchased my
first IBM PC and HP scanner out of my own money with some help from my
family since it was to be used primarily for college etc. So since it
was mine I could do anything i wanted to do with it, and BSVI etc had
no say in the matter. I suppose some people feel that if they didn't
pay for it themselves BSVI or whomever has the final say how that
technology is to be used. I was never under that restriction.
