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
