[access-uk] Re: Itunes: Why do we keep on paying and paying?

Mel, 30 pounds is quite a lot of money to someone living on a government fixed income, and probably with a wife and family as well.

But £30 isn't a great deal to ask compared to other programs out there. After all, it isn't Brian Hartgen's fault that Itunes isn't accessible with screen readers and why should he give his time and expertise for free? We all have to make a living!

Peter, totally agree with all you say, and before you all jump on us. As Visually Impaired people we are not looking for something for nothing. We are willing to pay for anything we get, but some of the guys that are creating these scripts are going way over the top, when it comes to pricing. For an instance, take a look at the Caketalking scripts for Sonar. Okay, there's a tutorial thrown in with them, but I think the cost of the Caketalking scripts is a bit too much. Billy

Isn't £30 a lot of money for a script? That's the equivalent of a hardcover novel which has taken the author the best part of 2 years to complete. I'm not saying a guy should not make a quid or two on a script, but £30 per script was hardly a labour of love.
