[access-uk] Re: Talx

oh come on mark! if you bought a new pc you wouldn't expect to have to pay a
fee to access it if you already own a screenreader? the principle is the
same with talks. for all intense and purposes, talks is a cut down
screenreader aimed at mobile phones. look at it this way, JFW costs, what,
£650 or so? so using the talks example, if you boght an ew pc, you wouldn't
be very happy if freedom scientific charged you another £220 despite already
having paid the £650 for jfw!!
