My opinion only, but I won't be buying jaws or any of their products. I don't recall what the thing was even called, but was a portable device put out by freedom that did everything, e-mail, gps and so forth. The v a bought a friend of mine a new one so he gave me his old unit, about three thousand dollars worth of stuff. He had let the batteries run down, so the thing lost all its marbles, meeded reset. I called freedom's "customer support" and they wouldn't help me at all as I wasn't the original purchaser. My friend contacted them and they wouldn't help him either as he hadn't actually purchased the product. It was bought by the v a and the person who signed the purchase order wasn't with them any more. After explaining all of this to their "customer service" department, they still refused to help. I threw the stuff in the dumpster, three grand worth of stuff totally worthless, because they wouldn't support their product. Just my little story.

 Hello list.

 I don't think any comments sent to the vfo people will do much good.

 Personally,I hope Microsoft Narater becomes so perfected that it puts the
 other screen reader into the useless category.

 That would make Narrater the main screen reader just as Voiceover is for
 the Apple products.

 Probably that's how it should be any way.

 The possibility of Window Eyes being phased out just makes my heart sick.

 Having to change over to something else andlearn all those commands and
 other things just seems a little to much of a chalange at this age.

 Something is just a little funny about this whole thing.
