Trust me Jack!  Once the operational side of DBT has been
put to bed, we (I) will be turning attention to
documentation in alternative formats.

Right now, we must concentrate on getting the existing
content spot on.

Hi George and Peter:

I think what I would like to see is a comprehensive document
containing all the information in the help system.  There
would  be a resource for novice screen readers, who wouldn't
have to navigate the help system for information while
attending to other tasks. This is bearing in mind, that a
screen reader can read only one window at a time, regardless
of how many are open.

I lack the tools to disassemble .chm files.  If we could
provide these in .dxp, or and I'm not hoding my breath, in
.dxb I am willing to prepare a comprehensive document with
all the help information, that could accompany the next
shipping version.  You might even be able to draw a small
revenue from hard copy.  The help system is well laid out,
and could well make a good off screen reference.

cheers

Jack
